Lions eye-up trophy success ahead of Sussex Cup quarters

Pagham chairman Tony Shea believes his side have what it takes to lift some silverware again this season.

The Lions have been in fine form in recent weeks, a run that has rocketed them up to second in the SCFL Premier.

While a run of four wins was brought to a halt with a 0-0 draw at Peacehaven, Pagham’s focus switches to the Sussex Senior Cup, where they face Isthmian South side Horsham. The match on Tuesday (7.30pm) in front of a home crowd is a tough one on paper.

But having defeated other sides from higher levels, such as Lewes and Sittingbourne, already this term, Shea believes his side will be up to the quarter-final challenge.

He said: “It will be a very hard game but we showed what we can do when we beat Lewes in the last round. I’m optimistic that we can match anyone at home. It is a really good draw.”

Pagham, who lifted the Peter Bentley Cup last year, also have a home RUR cup semi final against Newhaven on January 23 (7.30pm).

Shea said: “If we can reach another final for the second season running that would be great for everyone.”
