Lewes FC Women have signed experienced Welsh international defender Nicola Cousins, who previously played in the FA WSL for Yeovil Town.

Cousins played over 100 games for the Glovers and in the 2018/19 season was one of the WSL’s top tacklers, making the third highest amount of interceptions in the league.

The versatile 31-year-old can play at centre-back, full-back, in midfield and when playing in America’s NCAA League was used as a striker.

Cousins previously played with Cardiff City Ladies for a decade but was without a club last season.
