FIT-AGAIN THOMAS BOOSTS CRAWLEY
CRAWLEY’S Enzio Boldewijn is hoping the return of fellow Dutchman Thomas Verheydt will help the Red Devils rediscover their shooting boots.
Striker Verheydt, 25, moved to the Broadfield Stadium from Dutch second-division side MVV Maastricht for an undisclosed fee in the summer but was forced home for treatment after picking up a knee injury.
Verheydt had only made four first-team appearances before his lay-off, which began at the end of August, but he returned to action in midweek as Crawley defeated Non-League Bognor Regis in the Sussex Senior Cup.
Now that he is fit again, winger Boldewijn, 24, is expecting his colleague to have a major impact on the Red Devils’ productivity in front of goal.
“We have missed Thomas because he gives us a different option up front,” he said. “It is going to take him time to get up to full fitness but I am sure he will score goals and be a big help to the team. But we all need to contribute more goals – myself included.”
MISSED: Thomas Verheydt
