Cypriot international renews Lewes contract

Cypriot international midfielder Filippa Savva has signed a new contract with Lewes for the coming season.

The 21-year-old joined The Rookettes last summer and was used heavily by both former Lewes boss Fran Alonso and his replacement Simon Parker.

Savva made 10 appearances in the FA Women’s Championship for Lewes. She made her league debut for the club on opening day as The Rookettes put in one of their best performances of the season to defeat Blackburn Rovers 5-1 at The Dripping Pan.

With the midfielder being an important member of the Lewes squad, the club have today announced via their official Twitter account that Savva has extended her contract for the coming season.


Savva started her career back in her homeland with AEK Kokkinochorion who she went on to represent in the Cypriot First Division. The player moved to England in 2018 where she initially joined Liverpool Feds before linking up with second tier side Lewes less than 18 months later.

The midfielder becomes the first player to commit her future to Lewes for the coming season. The Rockettes boss Parker is set to reveal many other members of his squad for the 2020/2021 FA Women’s Championship season in the coming days.
