Former Bournemouth striker Steve Fletcher has chosen to join Crawley ahead of Weymouth after leaving Chesterfield, reports BBC Radio Solent.

The 35-year-old has signed a one-year deal at the Blue Square Premier outfit, with the option of a second year.

Crawley have also signed defenders Sam Rents and Chris Giles, recently released by Brighton and Forest Green.

"Each one of these lads will play a big part next season," boss Steve Evans told BBC Southern Counties Radio.

"We identified key areas in the team that we had to strengthen and there is no doubt we have done that with these three signings."

Fletcher turned down a new contract with League Two side Chesterfield to move closer to his Bournemouth home.

He spent 15 years with the Cherries, making over 500 appearances.
