Maggie Murphy has announced her decision to step down as Lewes FC CEO at the end of the current season. We will bid farewell to Maggie when the 2023-24 campaigns come to a close. 

Maggie’s journey with Lewes FC has been one of dedication, growth, and profound impact on and off the pitch.

Under Maggie’s leadership, Lewes FC has not only flourished on the field but has also championed equality and challenged societal norms within the football community. Maggie’s tireless advocacy for a more ethical, equitable, accountable and inclusive form of football has made Lewes FC a beacon of progress and inclusivity.

Reflecting on her time with us, Maggie expressed:  “It has been an honour to lead this incredible club over five exciting and challenging seasons, from navigating a global pandemic to breaking club and FA Cup attendance records. I am lucky to have worked alongside some incredible colleagues and players, and I am proud of all we have achieved on and off the pitch. But, after five incredible seasons, it’s time for me to pursue new challenges. For now though, I am completely focused on the next few important months and supporting Directors with their transition plan.”

Trevor Wells, Chair of Lewes FC, expressed gratitude for Maggie Murphy’s outstanding contributions, stating: “We thank Maggie for her exceptional work during her tenure at Lewes FC. It is a very different club to the one she walked into in 2019. Maggie has led this club with a verve and commitment that has impacted players, staff and the Lewes and wider football community. Her dedication to advancing the club’s mission, coupled with her relentless pursuit of equality and social justice within football, has been truly commendable. Maggie’s impact extends far beyond the confines of our club, resonating throughout the football community in England and beyond. We can’t thank her enough. While bidding farewell to Maggie, the club looks ahead with optimism and determination to build upon her remarkable legacy and continue the pursuit of excellence both on and off the field. ”

As Lewes FC navigates Maggie’s departure, we remain steadfastly focused on our immediate objectives for the remainder of the football season. Maggie will continue to serve in her role until the conclusion of the season, collaborating closely with the board to facilitate a smooth transition and ensure a seamless handover of responsibilities.

With warm regards,

The Board of Lewes FC
