Lewes manager Simon Parker has been busy in the transfer market yet again with the club acquiring the services of former England youth international goalkeeper Tatiana Saunders according to reports on The Rookettes’ official website.
The 27-year-old stopper moves to The Dripping Pan following a spell with French club Thonon Evian Grand Geneve.
It has been reported that Saunders, a player who has represented England up to Under-19 level, has been handed the number one jersey by Lewes and she will battle with fellow keeper Laura Hartley for her first team place.
Lewes boss Parker now looks to have completed his recruitment in the goalkeeping department. Saunders provides Lewes with an experienced option between the sticks while Hartley has a very strong grounding after being at top flight club Brighton & Hove Albion.
Today’s announcement of the signing of Saunders now means that Lewes boss Parker has unveiled eight new signings in as many days. It is believed that 20 first team players are now registered to play their football with The Rookettes in the 2020/2021 season.
Lewes are set to begin their third season in the second tier. They have previously recorded ninth and eighth-place finishes in the FA Women’s Championship and the club will now have their eyes on further progression in what is a very competitive league.
