From the summer onwards, all three ladies teams at Lewes Football Club will benefit from using the brand new all-weather pitch now nearing completion next to the club's grounds in the town.
Built with funding from the Premier League, the FA, and Sport England together with investment by many of the Club's 1000 community owners, the pitch will cut out the need to travel to other locations for training.
The ladies first team - affectionately known as the Rookettes - which plays in the FA Women's Premier League, will train regularly on the pitch under manager John Donoghue, who has his sights on progressing to the WSL 2, now that promotion is permitted.
"Using the new facility is another step forward in our plan to play at the next level up," said Donoghue. "Lewes FC was instrumental in the campaign to open the door to the Women's Super League in the first place, and now we want to attract other top quality players from around the region to join our existing team to help us get there. We have the management and the budget to do this, and I will make sure we offer our squad the quality of coaching and support they deserve."
The first team will train twice a week on the new 3G surface and play home games on the grass pitch which they share with the men's teams at the Club's 2,500-capacity stadium: the 'Dripping Pan'.
