Bosma made 37 appearances for the Rooks this season, scoring
seven goals – including a memorable lobbed strike in our trip to Guernsey in
Bosma was spotted by Coventry’s scouts earlier this season.
The Sky Blues allowed Bosma to finish the season with the Rooks before completing

Lewes manager Darren Freeman is sorry to see the midfielder

really, where I’ve been involved most of the time and I’ve really enjoyed this
Everyone at the club wishes Bouwe all the best for his professional
