Women's football news

Caitlin Hayes has become the first new player to join our women’s team for the 2019-20 season.

The 23-year old English central defender made 28 appearances this season for Barcelona FA in Cyprus and scored 13 goals. Three of these were in the Champions League.

Previous clubs include playing for both Manchester clubs as a youth player before joining Everton to start her senior career. Caitlin then spent some time playing in the States at Mississippi College before returning to senior football in Cyprus.

Caitlin commented: “I’m absolutely delighted to have signed for Lewes. After talking with Fran, the project and the vision of the Club really excites me and I can’t wait to join up with the girls in pre-season”

Fran Alonso commented: “”I am delighted to bring Caitlin to the team! She was formed at Manchester United and last season she had played and scored in the Women Champions League. On top of that she scored for her club, Barcelona FA 13 goals in 28 appearances, and that’s as a Centre back or defensive midfielder. To be able to attract players of Caitlin’s calibre show the ambition we all have at Lewes and the high football standards we all want.”

It’s a huge Rooks welcome to Caitlin!
