Lewes FC Men are delighted to announce the appointment of Craig Nelson as the new 1st Team Manager. 

‘Pitts’ as he is affectionately known, was managing Glebe last season where he made very positive progress, sitting at the top of the league for most of the season.

In his playing career, he became established at this level playing for Tooting & Mitcham before progressing into coaching, and then his first managerial role at Glebe.

Director, John Peel, had this to say on the appointment: “I’m delighted to welcome Craig to the club. He’s a manager who fits perfectly with our ethos of playing high intensity, possession based football. Craig and his backroom staff are forward thinking people who excel at creating positive squad environments and outstanding high performance culture. We are excited to have Craig to join us as we prepare for next season”.

Upon signing, Craig said: “It’s been unbelievable, the process has been gruelling but well worth it.

“I’ve been managing at Step 5 with Glebe, we play possession based football, high intensity, fluid, and make sure there’s a lot of energy to get the fans off their feet.”

Craig will be joined at the club by Danny Oaking (Assistant Manager), Bryan Nzinga (1st Team Coach), Frankie Sawyer (1st Team Coach), Arron Fray (S&C Coach), Sheikh Ceesay (Goalkeeper Coach).

Welcome to the Dripping Pan, Pitts!
