Their 3-0 Peter Bentley Cup victory away to Worthing United put them in the semi-finals.

That’s on top of their bid for success in the SCFL premier division, RUR Cup and Sussex Senior Cup.

Pagham went ahead at Worthing after just four minutes through Callum Overton but Mavericks matched their high-flying opponents for long periods.

Matt Hards was denied an equaliser by a superb save, Alfie Gritt twice went close and Chamal Fenelon had two efforts saved.

United had defender Tadley Bromage sent off for two bookings eight minutes from time and Kieron Pamment struck twice for Pagham in the last three minutes.

Pagham will host Loxwood in the last eight of the RUR Cup on Tuesday, December 13, and will find out how their Sussex Senior Cup last-16 opponents will be when the draw is made on Saturday.

The Lions, named SCFL premier-division team of the month and sitting second in the table, return to league action this weekend when they host Eastbourne Town.
