Lewes Ladies Lift Ryman League Cup

Lewes Ladies completed a League and Cup double on Wednesday, winning the Ryman League Cup 3-0 against Eastbourne Town.

Played in atrocious conditions, the Rooks got of to a great start when Freddie Baker nipped in to put Lewes ahead in the fourth minute.

The visitors were quite comfortable, hitting the woodwork three times in the first half and keeping the Town goalkeeper busy, including a save from Naomi Cole which she somehow managed to fumble over the bar from 12 yards out.

Lewes boss Jacquie Agnew was getting increasingly frustrated with the wasted opportunities from her players but before she turned the hairdryer on them in the interval, Cole doubled the Lewes lead with a great strike from the edge of the area.

The Rooks turned the heat up a little after the break with Holly Grogan working hard upfront alongside Tammy Waine, and Player of the Match Cole bossing things in midfield.

With the rain fluctuating between monsoon and not-quite-monsoon, both sets of players found it difficult to play football on a sticky pitch but this didn’t bother Cole who teed herself up just inside the area for a rasping shot which dipped over the keeper to make it 3-0 to Lewes.

The scoreline stayed this way until the end which meant that the Ladies were able to add the Ryman League Cup to the Women’s South-East Combination League title and the runners-up spot in the Sussex County Cup.

On Sunday, the team travel to Luton in their final league game of a season which has so far seen them remain unbeaten in the league, a record which Agnew and the players will be keen to ensure lasts until the final whistle.
