Pre-season preview: A v Lancing

2 months ago By Gary Brigden

Our second game and we make a trip down to the south Coast to take on Southern Combination Premier Division side Lancing.

Lancing's ground is also the headquarters of the Sussex FA, and they have an excellent 3G facility, although truth be told the previous grass pitch they had there was something of a carpet as well.

We have met on a couple of occasions, once back in July 2012 when we played a double header against Lancing (first and reserves) up at Stanley Park, with one game ending in a 6-2 defeat, our goals from Theo Campbell and a John Humphries penalty. In the reserve friendly goals from Herve Zaha, Dave Burton, Josh Smith, Darren O'Malley and Kris Barry.

The only competitive game between the sides came in September 2014, in the first round of the FA Vase, when a culmination of Lancing being really good, and us being really poor ended with us on the wrong end of a 4-1 defeat. Our goal on a dismal day coming from Richie Smith.

Where next?

Reserves slip to pre-season defeat The Reserves slipped to a 2-1 defeat against Surrey Elite Premier Division side Westside in their opening pre-season friendly.
2018/19 Squad update Darren and Donny's squad for the 2018/19 season is starting to take shape.
