Winning end to 2018 for Sids

Sidlesham will want to start the new year as they ended the last after picking up three vital points against Wick.

 

Steve Bailey’s side were composed throughout in the SCFL Division One clash and came from behind to secure a 3-1 win.

 

A Joe Manners strike was followed by a late brace for Bradley Dean, which ensures Sids are 12th at the turn of the year.

 

A busy week lies ahead for the Recreation Ground side with a trip to Littlehampton Town tomorrow (3pm) followed by a visit to struggling Mile Oak on Wednesday (7.30pm).

 

Having secured two wins from three, Sids now have nine points separating them and the bottom three.

 

A continuation of that form should keep them clear of trouble, ensuring a successful return to step six football.

 

Fellow SCFL Division One side Selsey will put their fine form on the line against league leaders Steyning Town tomorrow (3pm).

 

Blues have now won five from six, a run that has seen them surge up to fourth in the league.

 

The latest come on Saturday with a 6-1 victory away at Worthing United.

 

A Dan Bassil first half hat-trick, along with a brace for Josh Hall and a Lindon Miller strike, secured the win against the manager-less Mavericks.

 

It will be a lot tougher test tomorrow against Steyning, who have lost just twice in the league all season.

 

Blues will follow that match up with a trip to Southwick on Tuesday (7.45pm).

 

SCFL Premier side Pagham also face a double header as they look to arrest a poor run which has seen them win just once in six in all competitions.

 

Lions had to come from behind twice last Saturday to secure a 2-2 draw against East Preston, Dan Simmonds and Daryl Wollers getting the goals.

 

Tomorrow sees them welcome in-form Broadbridge Heath to Nyetimber Lane (3pm) before the much anticipated Sussex Senior Cup third round clash with Burgess Hill on Tuesday (7.30pm).

 

It will be the third time the match has been scheduled, with the first being called off just 20 minutes from the end due to floodlight failure. Lions were 2-0 up at the time.

 

In SCFL Division Two, Bosham’s revival continues with the Walton Lane side seeking a sixth successive win tomorrow against Brighton Electricity at Withdean (3pm).

 

The Robins defeated leaders Angmering 2-1 last time out, with James Ruston and Alex Barnes getting the goals.
