Men's football news

We are pleased to announce our first new signing ahead of the new season as we welcome midfielder, Alfie Egan to the Dripping Pan. 

Alfie, 25,  joins having played last season with Dorking Wanderers in the National League where he made 13 appearances.

He started his career with AFC Wimbledon, making over 20 appearances which followed with loans to Sutton United, East Thurrock United and Kingstonian before making a permanent switch to Ebbsfleet United.

Egan spent two seasons with the Fleet in the National League and National League South before joining Dorking last summer.

Manager Tony Russell was understandably pleased with the capture: “I have been talking with Alf for over two years now, and he had always said he would like to play for me one day. So when I heard the news he was coming out of Dorking, I was on the phone. If only it were that straightforward!

“As you can imagine, Alf had many clubs interested in him, so I had to remind Alf that he had said for ages about playing for me, so it was now or never and thankfully, he chose to sign for us.

“Alf is a number 8 who can run off people with his high energy or he will run past people with the ball. He has a high football intelligence with an eye for a pass. He has played over 20 games for AFC Wimbledon as well as over 100 games in the National League and he is still only 25.

“Alfie is a top top player who I am so excited to work with and also can’t wait to show how good he is to the Lewes faithful too”.
