An interview with Lewes F.C director, Charlie Dobres.

Lewes F.C stand unique among the vast number of football clubs for it’s stance on gender equality . It is clear that those behind the scenes are pioneers of a different kind of football club. I was fortunate enough to speak with Charlie Dobres, one of the club’s directors. We discuss how Lewes F.C spearheaded a campaign to champion equal rights within the club. And how they have set out to challenge the dominant tropes regarding women’s football.

Previously covered in Episode 4 with its #FACupPrizeGap open letter to the F.A board, Charlie maps out how they hope to play a positive role in ensuring that the F.A Cup is a reflection of equality in all aspects of the tournament.
