Ini-Abasi Umotong returns to England for Lewes FC


Lewes have signed former former Albion striker Ini Umotong after she left Swedish side Vaxjo DFF having joined them in July last year.


The Nigerian international played 13 games for the side in the Damallsvenskan and scored twice.


Prior to that Umotong had spent three years at Albion.

She was Albion's top scorer in 2017/18, scoring 10 goals in 19 games in all competitions.

In the 2019/20 season, Umotong helped the Seagulls reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, scoring the third goal in a 3-0 win over rivals Crystal Palace. The Rooks general manager Maggie Murphy said: “We’re delighted to bring on board a player of Ini’s calibre and experience, who understands the club’s ambition and trajectory and wants to be part of our story.

She’s the first signing we’ve made on the back of the recent Lyle & Scott investment and will really help take us to the next level.”


Ini would hope to continue being part of Nigeria’s Super Falcons set up going forward.
