We are thrilled to confirm that our incredible club captain, and Lewes FC Hall of Famer, Rhian Cleverly, has been retained for the 2023/24 season. 

Rhian, 28, will now enter her fifth season as a Rook after being inducted into the Lewes FC Hall of Fame in this year’s awards.

Rhian is a key figure for Lewes and leads the club to the highest of standards, on and off the pitch, which makes her an important asset to the team.

Speaking after signing, she said: “After getting released in France in 2019, I doubted whether I’d ever play professional football again.

“Hard to believe I’m back for my fifth season at Lewes FC. A record breaking FA Cup Quarter Final, an equal prize money campaign, double hip surgery, goals (in both ends), hall of fame and a global pandemic – it has been far from boring.

“Despite the grandma hips I know there’s still plenty more to play for and I know there’s still lots more to fight for. I hope you’re ready Rooks!”
