Nicky Wheeler is the latest player to pledge his future to Lewes.

The young forward impressed in his first season at the Dripping Pan after signing from Burgess Hill.

The management team of Garry Wilson and Danny Bloor have been working hard to get their squad in place for next season early.

Wheeler scored five goals last season from a wide role and the Rooks were keen to persuade him to stay.

Bloor said: “Nicky has been a pleasure to work with. He did very well for us last season and quickly became a fans’ favourite.

“We still feel he can get even better and he feels that himself.

“He was a youngster at Charlton, he got released and then had a couple of years out of the game. He still feels there is more to come and so do we so we are delighted to have him as part of our plans.”

Lewes have also confirmed Ross Treleaven will be re-signing. Jay Lovett has been invited back for next season with talks continue with other players including Ben Austin and Andy Pearson.
