Lewes have signed Hollie Olding on a two-year deal, following her departure from fellow Barclays Women’s Championship side Crystal Palace.

The 24-year-old – who has also played for Brighton & Hove Albion, Charlton Athletic and University of Pittsburgh – made 15 appearances for the Eagles last season, scoring twice.

Olding told lewesfc.com: “I’m really excited to be here, I’ve done two sessions now with Scott and the team, and just really excited to be part of Lewes.

“It’s always looked like a great club, the fans, the engagement, and what Lewes do off the pitch. I really liked [manager] Scott [Booth] and when I spoke to him he put my mind at ease with everything.

“Last season I found myself mainly in midfield but I am quite versatile, I’d like to add more goals to my game, hopefully a few assists, and I’ll be a competitor on the pitch.”
