Young Lions win the Title!

1 year ago By Tony Shea

Pagham Under 21's clinched the Southern Combination Under 21 West Title on Thursday evening.

The Championship was confirmed as Pagham's after Horsham YMCA drew 0-0 at home to East Preston. The result meant it was impossible for any team to catch The Lions and handed them the Under 21 title in their first year at the level.

The young Lions have drawn one game, lost one, but won all the rest in a season to remember.

For most of the group, this title made it 3 League Winners medals in 3 years - a fantastic achievement for the lads and one the club is extremely proud of.

On top of that success, a number of the Under 21 lads have featured regularly for the first team this year.

The 21's still have 3 league games remaining as well as the Under 21 Challenge Cup Semi Final against Shoreham to look forward to.

For managers Tom Simmonds and Will Searle, this was their 5th trophy since arriving at the club 3 years ago and I'm sure both them and the players are looking to make it 6 before the season is over.

The Lions will be presented with the trophy this coming Thursday 23rd March when they take on Horsham YMCA at Nyetimber Lane (7:30ko). It would be great to have a big crowd at the Lane to see the lads lift the trophy!
