Crawley Town stand in a state of limbo, following the dismissal of three senior club figures.

The club announced yesterday that chief executive Richard Low had been dismissed from his position within the club. 

That news was quickly followed by the reports today confirming the departure of brother and General Manager Danny Low, and Marketing Manager Ryan Murrant were also going to be leaving the club with immediate effect. 

Fans have taken to social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook to demand explanations over the club's future amidst growing concerns surrounding the club's financial status.

Although the club have not yet confirmed the dismissals of Murrant and Danny Low, marketing manager Ryan Murrant took to Twitter to post: "What more can you do than your absolute best?"

He followed this up with a quick-fire second tweet, reiterating his pride: “At least I have a wonderful girlfriend and 4 lovely boys to look after. I did everything I could and won 2 awards. My head is held so high.”

Mr Murrant was then inundated with replies calling for explanations and sending their thanks and apologies for the parting of ways.

The club currently appears rudderless, with no CEO, General Manager or Marketing Manager with just three weeks until the first game of the League One season, when Crawley Town take on Coventry City in the curtain-raiser for the forthcoming season.

Crawley Town have enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent seasons following the takeover by Bruce Winfield and Susan Carter in 2010. 

Under the watch of now-Rotherham manager Steve Evans, the club climbed from the financial gutter to League Two football, drawing the giants of Manchester United in the FA Cup. 

Evans was to depart the club on the 9th of April 2012 to take up a new role managing Rotherham United, after raising concerns over how far he could take the club.

Crawley achieved promotion to League One but have since been dogged by questions over the club's immediate and long-term future, as instability off the pitch brought about more questions than answers as to the management of the club from boardroom level.
