CRAWLEY TOWN reportedly tried to persuade a player to sign for them by offering them a bonus for every time they won a HEADER.
Cryptocurrency company Wagmi United bought the League Two side in April and have attempted to rebuild the squad in bizarre fashion.

And a new report has now revealed just how weird their incentives to potential new recruits are.
The Guardian are claiming that Wagmi United, who are led by “crypto bros” Preston Johnson and Eben Smith, offered a defender a bonus every time he headed the ball per game.
Perhaps even more amazingly, the player in question allegedly snubbed the offer despite the potential opportunity to rack up a huge amount each match.
But not every one of their unique offers has been rejected.
In fact, it also adds that when they signed Dominic Telford from Newport, not only did they double his wages, they also included a bonus in his deal for every time he wins the ball back in the opposition side’s half.
The 26-year-old was top scorer in the fourth tier last term but even his arrival has been unable to stop the chaos at Crawley this season.
The Red Devils are currently 20th and searching for their fourth manager of the campaign.
Kevin Betsy was axed after just four months before his interim replacement Lewis Young was sacked with ex-Tottenham and West Ham winger Matthew Etherington coming in.
However, Etherington was sacked by Crawley after just 32 days and three games at the helm.
Crawley’s crypto owners also told the 41-year-old that he could not play striker Tom Nichols during one of his games as he had been sold to Gillingham without his knowledge.
Nichols confirmed the news last month, saying: “I got told after training they had accepted an offer for me from another club and I couldn’t play anymore.”
