Football Therapy teams back in action

Football Therapy teams back in action

It seems that Lewes FC's high-scoring streak isn't just confined to the men's and women's first teams. The club's Mental Well-Being sides were also recently in action, as the Sussex Disability Leagues kicked off, and they joined in the fun.

Lewes FC Mental Well-Being team were back in action again recently in the Sussex Disability League as they looked to defend last year's title win. Due to the success of the club's “Football Therapy” sessions (run in conjunction with mental health charity Together), we have managed to enter two teams this season, one in the Premiership as previous seasons and one in the Championship.

Football Therapy is a free, drop-in session that runs every Thursday evening between 7-8pm on the Lewes FC 3G all-weather pitch. It is aimed at any adult (male or female) who is going through mental well-being issues of any kind. It's a very social football session for people of any (or no!) football ability and someone is always on hand for a chat too.

In the recent Disability League matches, both of our Lewes FC MWB teams got off to a good start to the season with Lewes FC MWB Reserves narrowly losing their first game 1-0 against The Village SDFL Yellows which could have gone both teams' way. Their second game was a different story coming up against our friends Lawn Court and our team bouncing back with a thumping 9-0 win with goals coming from Dana Curtis (2) Ryan Isted (3) Oscar Healey (3) and Mark Harris (1)

The Lewes FC MWB Premiership team were high scorers too, winning their first game of the season 7-0 against Brighton & Hove Deaf 1st XI with goals from Dave Lambert (6) and Tim Partridge (1). Their second game against Crawley United was a much tighter affair, finishing as a 3-2 win for Lewes. Goals came from Dave Lambert (1) Damien Lambert (1) and Tim partridge (1). So, our 1st XI look like they might be on the right path to defending their title after taking all 6 points, but along way to go yet!
