Chichester and Pagham pile pressure on Sussex League leaders
Five of our six local Sussex League sides had positive results - and scored 18 goals in the process.
Leading the way were Pagham, who took their league goal tally past 50 for the season - the first top-flight side to do so - with a 4-2 home win over St Francis Rangers.
They’re third but level on points with them in fourth are Chichester City, who beat Eastbourne United 3-0 at Oaklands Way.
Joe Briggs and Adrian Brockway put City in command with goals towards the end of the first half and Ben Vassallo made sure of it with a late third.
The Lions and City both have 34 points and are just five behind leaders Crawley Down.
Also in division one, Selsey’s inconsistent season continued when they lost 4-1 at Ringmer.
In division two, Midhurst grabbed a 1-1 draw at Bexhill, with Luke Sheldrick their scorer.
In the third division Sidlesham were 4-1 winners at Pease Pottage.
Last but not least, in the Sussex Intermediate Cup, Bosham - who reached the final last season - hammered Angmering 6-2 at Walton Lane.
