Goalkeeper Shanell Salgado is leaving Lewes this summer at the end of her contract at The Dripping Pan.
The 28-year-old took to her personal Twitter account to announce her departure and to thank the club for their support earlier today.
Salgado has spent one season at The Dripping Pan in which she largely provided cover for first-choice Lewes goalkeeper Tatiana Saunders. Salgado made six appearances for The Rookettes in the Barclays Women’s Championship, keeping a clean sheet in her side’s 2-0 win at Watford in February.
Announcing her Lewes exit, Salgado said “Thanks to Lewes Women for last season. I really appreciated the challenge and support and I made great memories throughout the season.
“I am looking forward to the next challenge.”
Prior to her move to Lewes, Salgado was sidelined for a long period with a serious injury sustained whilst at previous club Charlton Athletic. Salgado has been able to prove her form and fitness at Lewes and is in good shape for her next career move.
Four players have now left Lewes during the close season. Prior to Salgado’s departure, midfielder Zoë Cross announced her retirement while attackers Georgia Timms and Lucy Ashworth-Clifford secured moves to the Scottish Women’s Premier League 1. New Lewes boss Scott Booth is yet to have any summer signings announced.
