The Rooks transfer business continues as defender, Frazer Shaw, becomes Tony Russell’s third summer signing. 

Shaw, 28, came through the academies of Arsenal and West Ham before starting his senior career with Billericay Town in 2014.

A season with Dulwich Hamlet in 14-15 saw him earn a move to League Two with Leyton Orient where he made 25 appearances before an eventual move to Woking following spells with Accrington Stanley and East Thurrock United.

Last season he spent half a season with Potters Bar Town before a switch to Faversham Town, but comes to us very experienced at this level.

Manager Tony Russell said: “Frazer has an excellent pedigree in football.

“I first saw him last season when I was out scouting a game, and he stood out so much; we tried to sign him during the season, but it didn’t work out, so I tried again this summer, and thankfully we got the deal done.

“I had a good chat with Frazer and he is really keen to get his football back on track and I know he is really pushing himself in the off-season, so I think we will see an even better version of him. I am excited to work with him next season”.

Welcome to Lewes, Frazer!
