Crawley boss Steve Evans happy to defer salary

Evans is confident the club can realise their ambition of clearing all debt

Crawley boss Steve Evans says deferring his salary is a gesture of appreciation towards the club's board.

Evans and assistant Paul Raynor have agreed to take a 'salary holiday' for November and December to help the club towards a debt-free future.

"It's not asked upon, it's not forced upon," Evans told BBC Sussex.

"It's purely a gesture back from the management team to say a big thank you to the people who have sorted the club out," he added.

"I've sat in board meetings over the last three or four months and I've seen the unbelievable finances coming in from two very committed directors.

"As a gesture I said I'm quite happy to put my salary in the mix for a couple of months. Sitting with a coffee in the office with Paul Raynor, he agreed to do the same."

Evans continued: "The nice thing from our point of view is that we have owners at the top of the football club who've sorted it out in a really dignified, professional way and more importantly opened their chequebooks."
