One famous person with roots to Crawley is the England Football manager Gareth Southgate. He went to school in Pound Hill Junior School and Hazelwick school in Crawley. Gareth Southgate, in an interview with a newspaper columnist has said that both schools were fundamental in his path to the top of his game with great PE teachers having a love for the game. Sadly I cannot help but vividly remember Gareth Southgate missing that deciding penalty kick in the Euro 1996 semi-final against Germany. Following that there were the subsequent silly TV adverts that followed with Gareth Southgate and a paper bag on his head! It’s funny the things you remember. Gareth Southgate was a great defender for England who grew up in Crawley town.
