Lewes have signed 26 year-old Northern Ireland international Caragh Hamilton from Glentoran as their first summer addition.

Hamilton has 15 senior caps for her country and was the youngest player to play for the national team at 15 years and 121 days old.

She told lewesfc.com: “It’s really exciting! It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while, to move to a professional environment.

“I think now is a good time in my career, at 26, been playing for Northern Ireland for the last 10 years, I think I’ll bring a lot of maturity.

“I think I’m an exciting player, someone who wants to go forward a lot, dynamic, energetic, works really hard, those are the key attributes I want to see brought out in my game here.”

Also joining the Rooks at the conclusion of her current contract is 21-year-old winger Anna Grey from Ipswich Town, for whom she scored 27 goals in 72 appearances, plus ex-Durham forward and Maltese international Maria Farrugia.
