Lewes branch continues Rookettes sponsorship
Our Lewes branch is delighted to announce its continued sponsorship of Lewes Ladies FC player, Bex Thompson-Agbro.
Defender Bex is a cornerstone player in defence and her experience will help the team, known as the 'Rookettes', finish even higher this season in the FA Women's Premier League - Southern Division - than last. The Rookettes are keen to build on their success and Bex will play a key role.
To give them the best possible chance, Lewes Ladies FC is launching a Girls' Football Academy Programme with Brighton's Newman College in September. The partnership offers a two year programme of high-quality, full-time education, as well as exceptional academy-style coaching on Lewes Football Club's new £1m 3G FIFA approved pitch.
Prior to joining the Rookettes from neighbouring Brighton and Hove Albion, Bex was one of the few gifted athletes to receive a scholarship from the University of Chichester, so knows how good coaching at a young age can help with development.
She said, "It is an exciting time at Lewes Ladies FC. We had a great finish to last season and the partnership with Newman College promises to bring young talent to the club. A big thank you to Chandlers for continuing its sponsorship and showing their support of the 'Rookettes'. Here's to another great season!"
Stuart Campbell, Branch Manager at Chandlers Lewes, added, "We're delighted to be sponsoring Bex again and wish her and the whole team all the best for the upcoming season."
