Lewes manager Fran Alonso has brought in Cypriot central midfielder Filippa Savva and Northern Ireland youth international Annie Timoney as his two latest acquisitions.

Savva, who has captained Cyprus U-19s and also played in recent Euro qualifiers for her national team, comes in from one of Alonso’s former clubs, Liverpool Feds.

Alonso told “I have been working with Filippa since she was 18 and part of the Cyprus set-up. Since then she has become a key member of the Cyprus national team and will be an important player for us. She has great potential and and a fantastic attitude so I’m sure she will have an enjoyable experience at Lewes.”

Tominey impressed at the very end of last season when she visited for trials and her pre-season performances have secured her a place in the 2019-20 squad. She was playing her football most recently for the Navy at Marine Academy Plymouth and before that she was at Irish side Shelbourne.

Alonso commented: “Annie is another of our young international players and is a fantastic addition to the team. She works very hard and is also a great character to have around who represents what Lewes is all about. I’m very happy Annie has signed for Lewes.”
