Lewes boss Simon Wormull has secured the services of local players Nathan Crabb, Jack Walder and Chris Breach for next season – but defenders Max Hustwick and Malvin Kamara are on their way out of the club.

Wormull brought in the Sussex-based trio of Crabb, Walder and Breach after taking over in the Rooks hot seat in the second half of last season. Striker Crabb scored some vital goals after moving from Ryman 1 outfit Eastbourne Townm while Breach impressed on his return to the Pan having left Lewes for Bognor Regis Town in the summer of 2011.

Walder has had a frustrating time since returning to the club from Hastings United. The midfielder missed games through suspensions when he was harshly sent off against East Thurrock United in February, then saw his season ended prematurely following a fractured eye socket sustained by a stray Billericay Town elbow in March.

Meanwhile, right back Kamara and centre half Hustwick join strikers Paul Booth and Ian Draycott in heading out of the Dripping Pan following Lewes’ near-miss tilt at the play-offs last season.

Kent-based Booth and Draycott left for Ryman 1 South side Maidstone United.

The Lewes FC website said: “The club would like to thank all four players for their performances during the last campaign and wishes them well for the future.

“Wormull is talking with all the players from last season’s squad and hopes to make a further announcement in the next few days.”
