Lewes are delighted to announce that former Cray Wanderers striker Joe Taylor has become the first new signing of the Tony Russell era. Taylor, who was the Isthmian Premier League's top scorer in 2019/20 joins the Rooks on a one year deal.

"I'm really happy to sign for Lewes and the challenge is one that excites me. The ambition of the club is impressive and I can't wait to get back to doing what I do best. I'm sensing special times for the club and fans ahead" Joe told us when he signed his deal earlier.

Rooks boss Tony Russell has managed Taylor for the last three seasons and was delighted to secure the services of one of the best strikers at Step 3.

"I'm over the moon to get JT over the line, he is a proven goal scorer and an all round top player. We have a great relationship so I was so keen to work with him again. JT is a brilliant man on and off the pitch and someone I know the Lewes fans will really love having him at The Dripping Pan"

Lewes FC Chair Stuart Fuller was equally pleased to secure the services of the striker.

"I've watched Cray Wanderers a lot over the last few seasons and there is no doubt Joe is a fantastic player. Tony and I had to be quick in securing Joe as there was unsurprisingly a lot of interest from clubs at Steps 2 and 3."

Fellow Rooks Director John Peel was equally excited about Joe's arrival at The Dripping Pan.

“Joe is somebody we’ve tracked for a long time so when the opportunity arose to obtain his signature, we pulled out all the stops. Joe is a versatile number 9 whose goalscoring record speaks for itself and somebody who I’m sure will be adored by our supporters”
