SKIP­PER Jimmy Smith has led the trib­utes to former Crawley Town man­ager Dermot Drummy who has died at the age of 56.

Smith, who had known him for more than ten years, said: “Dermot was not only a great coach but also a great man.

“I first got to know him dur­ing my time at Chelsea and when he came to Crawley and gave me the cap­tain’s arm­band it was one of the proud­est mo­ments of my ca­reer.

“He was a great per­son to know and the lads who worked with him are go­ing to miss him. Our thoughts go out to his fam­ily.”
