On Sunday, Jacquie Agnew will bring to a close an unbelievably successful career as the manager of Lewes when the team take on Cardiff City Ladies in the Premier League Southern Division.
Kick off is now at 3pm, at the Dripping Pan - FREE admission.
But fear not, Jacquie is not leaving the club. She is taking up the position of Ladies Head of Football Operations as the club expands its Ladies football division. Jacquie has been at the helm of the team since it was created in 2002 and has masterminded the rise through the leagues to a position in the highest division they can currently play at. This season the club will record their best ever finish in at least sixth place, above the likes of West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton & Hove Albion.
The club therefore needs to start the search for a new Rookettes manager who will take over the reins from Jacquie.
Lewes Ladies FC was established in 2002 and is now an integral part of its parent club: Lewes FC. There are currently two women's teams: the first team playing in the FA WPL (Southern) where we are currently mid-table, and the under 16s, who have been league champions for two seasons in a row. We now want to add two new sides - an under 23s and under 18s - so we can complete the player pathway at the Club. Our ambition for the senior team over the next three years is to consolidate our position in the FAWPL to a regular top three position and then promotion to the next step subject to criteria.
The Club has created a strong local, regional and, to some extent, national brand. It is a club that is helping to pioneer fan/community ownership and also leads the way in how transparently it operates. As a not-for-profit Community Benefit Society the club also has the advantage of its fans, owners and sponsors knowing that every penny of revenue goes back into the club to support its various teams and all the community work it does. It is a FA Chartered status club.
Lewes FC is also embarking on a new £6m regeneration project which will include a new 3G training facility as well a fantastic new clubhouse and changing facilities.
