Crawley keeper could stay
Ben Hamer

Crawley Town goalkeeper Ben Hamer has revealed he would be willing to stay with the Nationwide Conference side if he is not needed by Reading.

The 19-year-old's contract with the Royals runs out at the end of the season and should a new offer not be put on the table, Hamer will consider his options.

The teenage stopper has played a big part in helping the Red Devils wipe out the 10-point penalty they received for going into administration and will provide a big boost to the club should he stay at Broadfield Stadium.

Hamer told The Argus: "My agent will talk to Reading in the next week or so to see what their plans are.

"I think I have done quite well and if things didn't work out then I would like to stay. The lads have been brilliant and I have enjoyed it.

"The Conference is competitive and is much better than playing reserve football. I could have been training all week at Reading and not playing and that is a killer. Playing on a Saturday is the main thing."

Meanwhile, Cralwey have been told new winger Tyrone Berry cannot play for thirty days because he was signed outside the transfer window.

The 19-year-old agreed to join last week after having his contract cancelled by Rushden & Diamonds and was thought to be eligible as a free agent.

But only players whose deals ended before January 31 are allowed to play immediately outside the window.

Do you think the play-offs are fair or that promotion should be decided by final league position?
Fair, give more clubs a chance
Unfair, second place should be promoted
