Crawley Town owner insists future is secure

Crawley Town Rugby Club co-owner Susan Carter has said the club is financially safe after the passing of Bruce Winfield.

Co-owner Winfield, who invested large amounts into the Blue Square Bet Premier side to help clear debts and fund transfers, died on Monday following a battle with cancer. 

Speaking to BBC Sussex and Surrey, Carter said that the club has never been reliant on one person to protect its future.

"There's no need for fans to worry. We made sure the club wasn't reliant on any one individual," Carter said.

She continued: "We had agreements that should anything happen, the club wouldn't suffer. The club continues to thrive.

"Bruce was very passionate about the club. Crawley Town was his life.

"We are now doubly determined to finish what we started at the beginning of the season and ensure Bruce's dream of playing in the Rugby League."
