Defender and fan’s favourite Natasha ‘Tash’ Wells has left Lewes FC.
Her quiet off-field persona has always belied the on-pitch warrior. Her tenacity and will to win have been her trademark on the field of play (or battle, as the Tashinator, as she is known amongst her adoring fans, might have it.)
Having never knowingly pulled out of even the most marginal of tackles, Tash has given her all for the red and black season after season. One of Agnew’s Warriors, Wells was one of a few to successfully complete the transition, through all the FAWPL years and into the FA Women’s Championship.
After a year out of the game in 2017 due to injury, Wells defied the odds by working her way back into the team, fighting for her place through hard work in the Development Squad and back into the Lewes First XI. And she has always made herself available for off-field promotion, being one of the faces of women’s football at the club – a shining example for players of any age.
The players, staff and fans wish her all the best and offer heartfelt thanks for years of selfless service to the football club.
