Bennett’s young Lions out to tame in-form Eastbourne Town

Pagham’s strong finish to the season will be put to the test tomorrow when Mark Bennett’s young Lions travel to in-form Eastbourne Town.

 

The Nyetimber Lane side have been much improved in recent weeks as a number of young players have made their first team debuts.

 

The good form continued on Saturday when goals from Johan Van driel and a late Josh Irish strike secured a 2-0 victory over Hassocks.

 

That win made it five from six for Pagham, who are fourth in the SCFL Premier.

 

But Bennett’s side will need to be at their best as they head east to The Saffrons tomorrow.

 

Town are two places below the Lions and have lost just once in eight games as they continue their recovery from a poor start to the season.

 

Pagham will be boosted by the return of pacey winger Terrell Lewis, who is set to feature as he makes his return from injury.

 

The Lions will also be out to avenge a 3-2 loss to Town at Nyetimber Lane in November, which came courtesy of a winner seven minutes into injury time.
