Lions drop to sixth as weather puts paid to promotion push

PAGHAM’S push for silverware continues this week as the Lions fight on in two separate competitions.

 

Ritchie Hellen and Tom Simmonds’ side lost ground on the leaders in the SCFL Premier last weekend when the wet weather saw their match with East Preston called off midway through the second half.

 

With the Lions leading 1-0 at the time, some at Pagham were left frustrated as it means they now drop to sixth in the very competitive division, seven points behind league leaders Haywards Heath but with a game in hand.

 

But they do not have long to wait for redress – returning to league action tomorrow when they travel to Crawley Down Gatwick (3pm).

 

Then, on Tuesday, the Lions host Horsham in the rearranged quarter final of the Sussex Senior Cup (7.30pm).

 

The initial match against the Isthmian South side was postponed at late notice after a number of visiting players were involved in a road accident.

 

Win through to the semi-final, and a date at the Amex Stadium in Brighton in May does not seem that far away – but Horsham have to be defeated first.
