Formed in 1885, Lewes FC plays at The Dripping Pan in East Sussex.
The club crest shows a bird and part of a castle.
The bird is a rook, which is also the club mascot as the club's stadium is frequented by these birds. It is said that should the rooks ever leave The Dripping Pan, then Lewes Football Club would fold!
The rook wears a red shirt as this is one of the main club colours (the other being black - the colour of the rook itself).
The castle tower represents Lewes Castle, built shortly after the 11th century Norman invasion and now a major tourist attraction. From the top of the castle, the Lewes FC stadium can be clearly seen.
Thanks to Laurie Pilbeam, Commercial Manager and Secretary at Lewes FC, for the above crest and information.
