Richie Barker parted company with Bury on Tuesday and is poised to be named Crawley Town's new manager.

An announcement from Crawley was expected on Tuesday morning confirming Barker as their new boss, but reports suggest it was delayed to due contractual negotiations.

Barker took over at Bury in March last year - his first managerial job. A long playing career took in spells at Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United and Brighton and Hove Albion.
