Sophie O’Rourke, Lewes’ combative wing-back will be back at the Pan for the new season.
The 20 yr old joined the club last year in mid-season from Icelandic side Grindavík, having progressed through the youth system at Reading before that.
When she originally signed last November, Sophie cited the Equality FC campaign as part of her reason for coming: “That was definitely part of the attraction. I think it’s great that a club can help support the women’s side as their support will help us achieve our goals for this season and, hopefully, a lot more clubs will join us and help grow women’s football even more.”
Welcome back Sophie!
