The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Dan Barnes

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
