Eastman heads to Crawley
Crawley Town have signed Colchester United defender Tom Eastman on a month’s loan
COLCHESTER UNITED defemnder Tom Eastman has joined Crawley Town on one-month loan deal and could make his Red Devils’ debut tonight in Steve Evans’ side’s home clash with Swindon Town.
The 19-year-old joined the U’s from Ipswich Town in the summer but has yet to make an appearance for John Ward’s League One outfit and was an unused sub for Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Leyton Oreint.
The towering youngster made 10 appearances for the Blues but turned down the offer of a six-month deal at Portman Road in the summer to pen a two-year contract at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
