Richard Brodie, Jamie Cook & Simon Rusk

Richard Brodie: He became Crawley's record signing, for a reported fee of £275,000, when he joined the Reds from York City in August 2010, the transfer being completed three minutes before the transfer deadline. He finished the season with 13 goals in 45 appearances as the club won the Conference title and promotion. Brodie signed for Conference side Fleetwood Town on loan for the 2011/12 season for a reportedly substantial loan fee, after he was reported to have become homesick down south. In July 2012 he joined Morecambe on loan and then in January he joined Grimsby Town on loan. After a trial at Hartlepool United the 25-year-old has now signed for Gateshead.

Jamie Cook: Now playing for Oxford City. Aged 33, he had left Crawley in May 2011 to sign for Bath City.

Simon Rusk: Now aged 31, he retired following the end of the 2010/11 season to take a role with Crawley's Centre of Excellence ahead of their first season in the Football League. He was appointed a youth team coach at Brighton & Hove Albion in March 2012, a role involving overseeing the development of the club's scholars and managing the under-18 team.
