SIGNING: Rachel Palmer joins Wasps from Lewes

Crawley Wasps are delighted to announce the signing of Rachel Palmer from FA Women’s Premier League high-flyers Lewes FC Women.

Crawley-based Rachel has made more than 110 appearances for Lewes over the past five seasons and further strengthens a Wasps squad currently top of the London & South East Premier Division, and unbeaten in all 15 league and cup matches this season.

Rachel, 24, will add experience and quality to Wasps’ squad as they pursue promotion to the FA WPL.

Wasps manager Paul Walker said he viewed the signing of Rachel as an excellent addition to the strongest squad in the club’s 25-year history, and a further endorsement of its growing reputation as one of the top sides in Sussex.

“Rachel joins us from a very well-run and ambitious club in Lewes FC Women,” he said.

“She is joining an equally ambitious club in Crawley Wasps, and a squad targeting rapid promotions as we strive to build a top-level semi-professional ladies side for Crawley, one the citizens of the town can be proud of and get behind in earnest.

“I am delighted Rachel is joining our talented squad and look forward to her playing a full part in us achieving our ambitious plans.”
