Pagham’s valiant effort takes them close to cup giant-killing

Pagham have a weekend off to reflect on what could have been after falling just short of another FA Cup shock.

 

After beating Isthmian South side Sittingbourne in the previous round, the Lions  pushed another higher league opponent all the way in first qualifying round.

 

Early strikes from Terrell Lewis and Callum Overton put the SCFL Premier side 2-0 up at Isthmian South side Carshalton Athletic.

 

But a second half comeback from the home side saw them go through. After falling behind 3-2 Scott Murfin did equalise with ten minutes to go. But the higher league opponents eventually came out 5-3 victors.

 

Perhaps tired from that stellar effort, Pagham lost to Three Bridges 3-1 in the SCFL Premier on Tuesday night, Joe Booker getting the goal.

 

The Lions have this weekend off, although they will return to action next Tuesday when they make the short trip to Littlehampton Town in the league.

 

With the FA Cup attention over for another year, the management duo of Richie Hellen and Tom Simmonds will be hoping for three points against the Golds.
