Crawley Town did not say whether it was Young’s decision, the club’s or a mutual one.

The immediate response from fans was that they were sorry to see Young do – as they demanded to know what was happening with the managerial vacancy.

The club said: “Lewis has given the club over eight years of impeccable service as both a player and a coach. Most recently, Young served his second stint as the club’s interim manager.

“Young joined the club in 2014 under then-manager Mark Yates. The former full-back went on to make over 200 appearances for the Red Devils before joining the coaching team at the Broadfield Stadium in 2021.”

The club added: “Everyone at the club would like to extend their thanks to Lewis Young for his constant hard work and dedication to the club in every role that he has served. We wish Lewis all the best for the future, and he will always be welcome at the Broadfield Stadium.”
