Lewes FC can announce defender Nat Johnson as the club’s fifth summer recruit under new boss Scott Booth.

Johnson, 28, joins the Rooks from Coventry United after a year in the midlands. She helped United escape relegation on the final day of last season, and has now moved to Sussex to be part of Booth’s set-up.

“I’m really happy to be here and it’s a club that I’ve played against a few times in the past,” said Johnson.

“I’ve heard a lot about the club over the years, and now to be down here and be a part of this community is really great.

“I’m well aware of what this club stands for. Everything they’re doing – fighting for equality and all the other great causes – it’s hard to ignore! As a female footballer I feel Lewes are leading the way on so many things.”

Johnson has already begun training with her new teammates and says she cannot wait to “get stuck in” during games.

“I’m quite an experienced player,” she said. “I give it 100%, get myself stuck in and hopefully the fans will love my work rate, my work ethic and get to know me as a player and a person.”

Everyone at Lewes FC would like to welcome Nat to the Dripping Pan.
