Fran Alonso’s first signing as new First Team Manager is to bring in Simon Parker as his assistant.
Simon became Assistant Manager to Fran at Southampton Women in 2015. When Fran left at the beginning of the 16/17 season, Simon stepped in to the role of First Team Manager there. During his 42 league games in charge, the team won 37, drew 2 and lost on just 3 occasions.
Following the promotion season with Fran, Southampton Women achieved promotion again in Simon’s first season and the following year finished runner up to Plymouth in their debut season in the FAWNL.
Simon commented: “I’m delighted to be joining Lewes. It’s a club I have admired for some time, I have always been impressed with the values and real sense of community the club has and I’m excited to be working with Fran once again. There is great potential here and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
