Popular Lewes goalkeeper Faye Baker has announced on her Twitter account that she is leaving the club.
The keeper has garnered a tremendous following and plenty of admiration for her heroic performances in net for the Rooks in her three seasons with the East Sussex club.
Baker has captained Lewes during her time at the club as she has largely held the title of the club’s first choice goalkeeper. She helped Lewes finish in eighth place in the FA Women’s Championship last season.
Despite finishing in the lower-middle portion of the table, Lewes had the fourth-best defensive record in the league, conceding just 18 goals, which is testament to the outstanding work that Baker has done as number one at The Dripping Pan.
Baker posted a heartfelt message on Twitter when confirming her departure this evening.
The time has come to say goodbye to @LewesFCWomen ❤️

Lewes fans will be sad to see Baker go but she will now be looking ahead at what opportunities the future may hold for her. What Baker’s next challenge will be remains to be seen but one would envision that there will be several clubs vying to offer a contract to one of the best keepers in the FA Women’s Championship.
