If Crawley Town was a political party they would be... The Liberal Democrats. First hit the big time in 2010, gathering a lot of support. They have had four good years, yet fell at the last minute, backtracking slightly on the good progress they had made. They will hope for a speedy return, although only time will tell whether stability and unity can be brought back to boost their future prospects.
