As if winning all fifteen games so far this season wasn't enough, the Lewes Ladies team has done something else to be proud of - they have become owners of the football club.
In what could be the first example of its kind in the country, all 18 players and the six members of the management team have paid their £30 to become fully paid up members of the club that they play for.
Lewes manager Jacquie Agnew said: "We wanted everyone involved with the Ladies Section to contribute something towards the club other than through playing football and the membership scheme is a perfect way for them to do so. We are all very proud to be associated with this club."
Lewes captain Kelly Newton added: "We feel we are now a very big part of this club and we all wanted to give something back."
The team under Agnew has been building towards a tilt at the South East Combination title for a few years and the Sussex Champions' results so far this season has won them a new loyal following, with attendances now reaching triple figures at the Dripping Pan - something quite rare at this level of women's football.
Club Director Charlie Dobres said: "This football club is all about people supporting each other. The Board of the club wholeheartedly supports the Ladies team and it's great that every member of our unbelievably successful Ladies team is supporting the club by buying a share."
