Roarie Deacon is on trial with Crawley Town.

The winger, who began his career at Arsenal before spending two years at Stevenage until he left in the summer, played 65 minutes of the Reds’ 3-1 defeat to Fulham on Saturday in a pre-season friendly.

He was replaced just after the hour mark by Lee Barnard, who was on loan at Boro last season, while former Stevenage players Jon Ashton, Jimmy Smith and Simon Walton also featured for Crawley in the game.
