DAVID SPEEDIE SACKED BY CRAWLEY

David Speedie, the former Chelsea and Scotland striker, has walked out on the Beazer Homes League club, Crawley Town, after being fined two weeks' wages for receiving his 12th booking of the season. He received his fourth suspension of the season a week ago when he was banned for four games.
