Sidemen star Tobi Brown and brothers in line for professional football debuts after impressing Crawley Town

SIDEMEN star Tobi Brown could have a future in professional football after he impressed Crawley Town.

Tobi and his two brothers, Jed and Manny, did not feature in Saturday’s FA Cup defeat to Accrington Stanley despite training with the League Two club this week.

Jed has impressed the most on trial but could not play as he is already contracted to Non-League side Fisher FC.

The game ended in disappointment for caretaker manager Lewis Young, but when quizzed after the game, he could only speak glowingly of Sidemen star Tobi and his siblings.

And he hinted that they could have a future with the club.

Young told SunSport: “It was over my head as to why they couldn’t play.

“It is something that the owners are big on, but unfortunately they couldn’t be involved today.

“But I do believe that they are going to be signed for the foreseeable, so as long as they are training well they will be up for selection.”

He added: “We are just trying to get results and obviously if they are good enough then they will be involved in the match day squad.

“I’ve just had a look on everyone as a whole, and I base my team selection on that, everyone has trained really, really well.”


With Tobi’s commitments to The Sidemen, his clothing brand Illvzn and his own YouTube channel, it seems to be youngest brother Jed who looks destined for greatness as a professional footballer.

Crawley perhaps could have done with Jed in their ranks today, as they were beaten 4-1 at home by League One side Accrington Stanley.

Tobi has previously claimed that Jed has the potential to play at a higher level after one of their training sessions in midweek.

He said: “One of the main reasons I agreed to do this with Crawley and WAGMI United was because I wanted to Jed a chance to get trained at a higher level.

“Everything he knows is self-taught and I want to see how far he can go with the opportunity I never had.”
