Compilation of YouTuber 'TBJZL' running the show in Sidemen charity match shows why Crawley have invited him to train

Compilation of YouTuber 'TBJZL' running the show in Sidemen charity match shows why Crawley have invited him to train

Sidemen member 'TBZJL', real name Tobi Brown, has been invited to train with Crawley Town alongside brothers Manny and Jed.

Tobi Brown's highlights from the Sidemen charity game show just why Crawley Town have invited him to train with them.

The West Sussex side, who play in League Two, have announced that Tobi, perhaps better known as 'TBJZL', will be attending a session alongside his brothers Manny and Jed on November 1.

Tobi has more than 13 million followers on his social media platforms, while the Sidemen's main channel on YouTube have a massive 17 million subscribers.

The idea is that the trio of brothers will be looked at going into the FA Cup clash with Accrington Stanley, where they could well be on the bench if they impress.

“We’re excited to have Tobi, Manny and Jed joining us for training on Tuesday, and we’re looking forward to seeing what they can bring to the club," Preston Johnson, the co-chairman of Crawley Town, told the club's official website.

"Depending on how they perform, we may extend offers to continue training with the lads on a trial basis and potentially compete for a spot on the bench for the Accrington Stanley match.

"As we’ve said before, it’s fairly unlikely they’d get on the pitch unless the game is well in hand, but we want to give them the opportunity to show Lewis and the staff what they can do in training and then go from there.”

But Tobi isn't just a YouTuber, he is a genuinely talented footballer. All three brothers play for Woolwich and Eltham Sunday Football Alliance side Under The Radar FC, but Tobi absolutely ran the show at the Valley against the YouTube all-stars recently.

The 29-year-old scored twice and registered an outrageous Trivela (outside of the boot) assist in an absolute masterclass. He was comfortably the best player on the pitch, rinsing full-backs with pace and trickery and having the end product to go with it.

The Sidemen won 8-7 and it was largely because of the display from Tobi on the left flank. Crawley sent scouts to watch him as part of WAGMI United's partnership with The Sidemen.

Crawley have history for venturing outside of the box for new signings. Last year they signed former TOWIE star and Soccer Aid stalwart Mark Wright and brought him on a substitute in the 3-0 FA Cup win over Leeds United.

White only made one appearance though and was released five months later.
