Three More For New/Old Look Rooks

Lewes may have just lost David Wheeler to Conference South side Staines Town but good news for Lewes fans was just around the corner as Lewes made three new signings in Stuart Robinson, Jamie Cade and Ian Draycott.

Jamie Cade
Jamie Cade is a fans favourite as he returns to the dripping pan having had a good spell with Horsham. Cade joined Horham in January after leaving Hastings, managed by Jason Hopkinson and he scored 11 goals in his time there being a huge influence in saving Horsham from relegation.

Stuart Robinson is the fith player to join Lewes from King's old club Farnborough, he has also played for Lewes before however just once. There were a number of interested clubs at a higher level interesting in hijacking the deal which was set for last week, however King, to his delight, managed to get his man. Robonson is a very tall young keeper with bags of potential.

And finally the third signing is the lively 22 year old striker Ian Draycott who has signed from Bedford Town of the Zamerotto Premier, the equivilent to Lewes's new league, where he managed to score 24 goals last season for a side which finished 17th. He is also a proven goalscorer at Conference South level, where Lewes were recently relegated from. Draycott was one of the players who played alongside Wheeler in the England school boys team.
