WAGMI United have been conducting their ‘global search’ for a manger since John Yems mutually agreed to leave the club on May 6 following his suspension after allegations of racism and discriminatory conduct.

Names such as Paul Tisdale, Nathan Rooney, David Artell, Kevin Betsy and Emma Hayes have all been tipped by the bookies to be the next Reds boss.

And today (Monday, May 30), co-chairman Preston Johnson confirmed to the Crawley Observer they are ‘nearing a decision’ after interviewing 12 candidates in the last three weeks.

When asked if there would be announcement on Tuesday (May 31), Johnson said: “Can’t say to be honest.”

Mail Online has reported this evening that ‘Arsenal are facing a fight with League Two Crawley to keep highly-rated coach Kevin Betsy’ after the Reds ended their interest in Hayes. The report added: “The former Barnsley and Wycombe midfielder is widely recognised as one of the best emerging coaches in the country.”

Reds fans were hoping for a quick appointment but co-chairman Preston Johnson recently told the Crawley Observer they would not ‘unnecessarily rush the process’.
