The Rooks are delighted to announce that they have captured the signature of young midfielder Theo Widdrington. The former Portsmouth Academy player has experience at Steps 1 and 2 and was previously at Bristol Rovers. The son of former Eastbourne Borough manager Tommy, Theo, will slot into the central midfield and give the Rooks more attacking options.
“I’ve known Theo for a long time and when I heard he was moving on from Bristol Rovers I was determined to sign him for Lewes. He played in our pre-season game against AFC Portchester a few weeks ago and impressed me then and I know he will do a great job for us” Rooks boss Hugo Langton commented on finally getting his man.
“Our squad is building nicely and Theo’s addition brings some higher level experience that will also help our youngsters develop. Hats off to Hugo for making this deal happen” Chair Stuart Fuller.

Theo goes into the squad for Saturday’s Pre-Season Friendly away at Corinthian FC, kick off 3pm.
