'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former Captain Quits

It's not too much of a surprise for me but it's a shame nevertheless that former Crawley captain Gary Alexander has retired from the game.

Alexander brought plenty of experience, along with quality, to the club when he was signed on loan from Brentford initially and then on a permanent basis in the summer of 2012. It was that experience and his leadership qualities that led to him being named captain in the 2012/2013 season.

Struggles for goals though eventually saw him dropped and he ended that season on loan with AFC Wimbledon and wasn't anticipated to return, but he did and spent a spell as joint caretaker manager last season before John Gregory was appointed, who then allowed him to move onto Burton on a free transfer last January.

Injuries held him back and following his release by the League 2 club this summer at the age of 34 Alexander has decided that enough is enough and will now start a new chapter in his life, which I'm sure all will wish him well with.
