Lewes Squad Practically Complete

Steve Williams
Just one day before the season starts, Lewes have had more comings and goings, with four players signing contracts just in time to play in tommorows game at Lowestoft.

Firstly, goalkeeper Mark Zawadski has been told that he has not earned himself a contract after being on trial for most of pre season and playing the full 90 minutes in Lewes's last few games due to Stuart Robinson suffering a slight injury.

The reasoning behind Zawadski's departure may be down to a new arrival in the hands of Steve Williams who has signed from Maidenhead Utd. who he left at the end of this season as he supposedly wanted to move closer to his home town Bristol, obviously something had changed for him.

Williams played for Lewes when they won the Conference South in 2008 and since then he had spells at Farnborough before moving to Maidenhead and becoming the first choice there.

Lewes's other three signings are all players who have earnt contracts since being on trial at the club. One player is Ben Pringle who played at centre back against Eastbourne Town and was criticised by some fans after the game.

Another is Hakeem Adelakun who comes from Crystal Palace where he was in the development squad with players such as Nathianal Clyne and Victor Moses. Adelakun has been very impressive over pre-season with consistant strong, powerful performances and King had expressed his interest in snapping up the midfielder who has also had spells with Dover and lastly, Havant.

Dwayne Lee is another powerful midfielder who has impressed greatly in pre season and has had spells with Barnet as well as a whole host of other non league clubs at higher levels.

The final signing is Malvin Kamara who also has a lot of experience and can play at right back or on the right wing, he has had a mixed response since going on trial at Lewes mid way through pre season.

That leaves the squad looking like this:

GK Stuart Robinson
GK Steve Williams
RB Max Hustwick
RB Malvin Kamara
CB Steve Robinson
CB Dominic Sterling
CB Ben Pringle
LB Lewis Hamilton
LB Jordan Lang
CM Gary Holloway
CM Matt Somner
CM Jed Wallace
CM Hakeem Adelakun
CM Dwayne Lee
FW Paul Booth
FW Nic Ciardini
FW Jamie Cade
FW Ian Draycott
FW Michael Malcolm

However King has admitted that he still wants another striker after Warren McBean left the club for Conference South side Havant, indicating that he did not manage to tie down Wade Small from Aldershot.
