Lions fighting rain and rivals

Pagham go to Lingfield tomorrow as they bid to fight their way out of trouble in the Southern Combination Football League premier division.

 

The Lions were due to be in action yesterday (Boxing Day) at struggling East Preston before a quick turnaround sends them to Lingfield in a crunch game.

 

Pagham boss Kerry Hardwell is hoping to get points on the board against sides in and around them – weather allowing.

 

He told The Post: “We tried everything we could to get the game on last Saturday when we were home to Loxwood but the weather beat us.

 

“Availability is really good for the Christmas period and we’re looking forward to the games.

 

“The boys have been training hard and we shall just go with it and see what we can do.”

 

Lingfield have played three games less than Pagham going into the Boxing Day fixtures.

 

The wet weather is massively impacting the league programme. In division one, mid-table Selsey had their match with Arundel postponed last Saturday along with the majority of the league and are not in action tomorrow. Bosham host Ferring tomorrow (2pm KO) after being postponed last Saturday at Rottingdean.
