Crawley Town have signed striker Matt Tubbs from Salisbury for an undisclosed fee, thought to be £70,000, on a two-year deal with an option of a third.

Tubbs, 25, spent seven years with Salisbury and played a major part in their climb to the Blue Square Premier.

The England C international was linked with a host of clubs following the Whites demotion to the Southern League.

He was the division's joint top-scorer last term and scored 140 goals in 290 appearances for Salisbury.

Tubbs told BBC Surrey: "There's a buzz around the place at the moment with last season's squad and now with those they've brought in.

"We know its going to be tough but it's only going to raise the bar."

Previously an apprentice with Bolton Wanderers, Tubbs had spells with AFC Bournemouth and Dorchester Town before signing for the Whites in October 2003.

He is the fourth striker to sign for Crawley this summer, joining Craig McAllister, Liam Enver-Marum and Jamie Cook.
