Sids, Selsey and Lions all seek Vase victories

Sidlesham will be hoping a change is as good as a rest as they still seek their first win of the season.

 

After former boss Steve Bailey moved upstairs, Sids have had a difficult start to their SCFL Division One campaign.

 

Five matches in and the club have picked up just one draw as they seek for a settled team.

 

There were improvements over the weekend when Sids should have beaten Storrington after leading 3-1 at half time before drawing 3-3.

 

That was followed by a 2-1 loss to recently-relegated Arundel on Monday.

 

Next for the Green and Golds is a FA Vase match against Southern Counties East Division One side Stansfeld, who will make the trip from Kent to the Recreation Ground tomorrow (3pm).

 

Fellow Division One side Selsey are also in Vase action, making the trip to Gravesend to play Southern Counties East Premier outfit Punjab United tomorrow (3pm).

 

Blues will then fancy springing a cup upset when they face SCFL Premier side Horley Town in the Peter Bentley Cup on Tuesday at home (7.45pm).

 

Daren Pearce’s young team have been in good form to start the season, sitting sixth in the league table.

 

Blues played extremely well to beat Billingshurst 5-1 last weekend thanks to goals from Lindon Miller, Max Davies (2), Callum Dowdell and Ryan Morey.

 

But that form deserted them in midweek when they were soundly beaten 4-0 at Wick.

 

SCFL Premier side Pagham are also in FA Vase action, heading to south east London to play lower league opposition, Southern Counties East Division One side Bridon Ropes tomorrow (3pm).

 

Lions then have a Tuesday clash with Division One side Oakwood in the Peter Bentley Cup (7.45pm).

 

Two cup games in a week will be a welcome relief for Pagham boss Bob Paine who has had a tough start to life at Nyetimber Lane.

 

That continued last weekend with a 2-0 loss away at newly promoted Alfold.

 

SCFL Division Two side Bosham host Rottingdean Village tomorrow (3pm) off the back of a 4-1 win at Ferring and 17-1 loss to Montpelier Villa last weekend.
