Bostik League South club Lewes announced they’d re-signed striker Billy Medlock and attacking midfielder Wilfried Grimaud.

Medlock appeared briefly for the Rooks under Simon Wormull, but has gone on to become one of the most feared forwards in the league.

Medlock scored 28 goals in all competitions for Hastings United during the 2015/16 season, and was a thorn in the side of the Rooks when they secured a 2-1 victory at Hastings on August Bank Holiday Monday.

The much-travelled striker has notched in the goals wherever he’s been, including Dorking Wanderers, Burgess Hill Town and Sutton United.

Lewes` boss Darren Freeman is delighted to have finally signed the 25-year-old striker, telling his club`s website: “Billy’s signing brings competition for places. “We’re building a very good squad. Billy’s been someone I’ve tried to get for a couple of years. He brings experience and, most of all, he brings goals.”

The Rooks have also recaptured 25-year-old Wilfried Grimaud.

Grimaud made a big impact when he joined the Rooks last Spring and was just beginning to hit form when he suffered a serious injury in a victory at South Park.

He’s been back in his homeland of France recovering from the injury, but is now ready to return to first-team action.

“Wilf brings a physical presence,” said Freeman. “He came in last year and did very well for us. He’s been back in France working very hard to get back to full fitness and we’re pleased to have him back.”

Leaving the Rooks, however, is midfielder Reece Williams-Bowers.

The youngster joined the club in the summer, but has been released to continue his career with league rivals Molesey.
