Crawley next manager after Scott Lindsey
Scott Lindsey – Manager Crawley Town
Scott Lindsey is the current manager of Crawley Town and a former English footballer who played as a midfielder. Scott had a long and successful playing career that spanned more than ten years and included stops at Gillingham, Dover, and Welling United.
Lindsey began his career with Goole Town in 1991 before moving on to Stafford Rangers and then Burton Albion and Sutton Coldfield Town in the Football Conference.
After leaving Bridlington Town, he joined Gillingham in July 1994. Despite making 12 league appearances that year, Lindsey was unable to make the Gills team when the new campaign began. In October 1995, he left for Dover Athletic, where he spent the next two seasons before moving on to Sittingbourne.
Following his release in September 1999, Lindsey joined Gravesend & Northfleet, where he scored his first goal for the team in a 3-0 Isthmian League First Division home victory over Wembley on January 1999.
Lindsey then moved on to Canvey Island, where he scored his first goal in a 3-0 Isthmian League First Division home win over Wembley in January 1999, before being released in September 1999 and joining Gravesend & Northfleet, where he stayed until the 2001-02 season. He signed on with Folkestone Invicta in July 2002, and on October 5, 2004, he made his 100th start for the team against Harrow Borough at home in the FA Cup Second Qualifying Round Replay.
He made his Maidstone United debut in the team's 2-0 Kentish Observer Football League Cup Group C victory in January 2006. In March 2008, he joined Sittingbourne and made his debut as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 Isthmian League Division One South home defeat to Croydon Athletic.
Lindsey returned to Folkestone Invicta as a player/coach before resigning in January 2009 to take a position as technical development coach at Gillingham. In this position, he was responsible for establishing development centres for young children in and around Kent while also working at the centre of excellence in Canterbury with the Under 9s through the Under 16s.
Lindsey was appointed first-team coach at the club and then served as interim manager after Chris Sutton was named manager of Lincoln City at the end of September 2009. In the summer of 2014, he was chosen to lead Swindon Town's under-18 team. He did, however, depart from Swindon in June 2016 to join Forest Green Rovers as their assistant manager.
Following the departure of Ben Garner for Charlton Athletic in July 2021, Lindsey returned to Swindon Town as assistant manager before being named the club's new head coach in June 2022.
On January 20, 2023, Lindsey was appointed manager of Crawley Town in League Two on a two-and-a-half year initial deal. "We are happy to welcome Scott to Crawley Town Football Club," Director of Football and Interim CEO Chris Galley said. “We were quite impressed by them during the interview process, and we are thrilled to have hired them for the second half of this season.”
He was victorious in his first game in-charge as Crawley Town beat Salford City 2-0.
