Crawley have appointed Richie Barker as their new manager after the 37-year-old left his role at Bury.

The Red Devils turned to Barker to replace Sean O'Driscoll, who left the club last month to return to Nottingham Forest without taking charge of a single game.

A compensation package between the two npower League One rivals was finalised on Tuesday evening, with Barker moving to the West Sussex club on a two-year contract.
