Ex-Crawley boss Dermot Drummy committed suicide after losing job

Recommended Posts

Inquest into his death today and it’s been announced that he was seeing a counsellor after becoming “low” after losing his managerial job at Crawley Town, and subsequently committed suicide. 

That’s really shocked me to be honest.

Sad to hear and unfortunate the help he was getting sadly wasn't enough.

I do hope that Drummy’s untimely death leaves a bit of a legacy behind. You quite often see fans on the backs of managers and players and it can get quite aggressive and quite hostile, sometimes very quickly, and I hope people maybe take a step back and realise that managers and players are humans, they’ll make mistakes, like we all do and that they can suffer from the same problems us ‘normal’ people go through. 

I’m not blaming Crawley’s fans for this, I should make that clear, it could have happened at any club.

Such a sad turn of events... I doubt anyone could have guessed he was that low he would contemplate suicide...

Unfortunately I don't think it will make much difference. Personally I've always had that there only human attitude but it does seem rare.

He offered football a lot in this country with his quality around progressing young players at Chelsea. He very nearly got the Palace job off the back of that in 2014. Very sad to see how this has all ended for somebody everybody spoke highly of.
