PAGHAM will be looking to end 2017 on a high and keep their promotion push well on track as their surge up the SCFL Premier table continues.
The Lions hit five past local rivals Chichester City on Boxing Day to give the Nyetimber Lane faithful a belated Christmas present.
Daniel Simmonds (3), Callum Overton and James Parkinson sealed the victory in front of a bumper crowd at Oaklands Park.
Those three points lifted Richie Hellen and Tom Simmonds side above Chi into third in the very competitive division.
With a home match against ninth-placed Loxwood to come tomorrow (3pm), the Lions know that three points will mean they head into 2018 in prime position as they eye-up promotion to the Isthmian League.
Pagham’s five star performance against Chichester was a continuation of a fine run of form for the Nyetimber Lane club.
They have lost just once in 15 matches in all competition – which includes scoring 15 goals in the last three matches. Central to that has been the form of their star striker Simmonds, who has bagged eight goals in that time.
