Reserves roar into Quarter Final.

Kerry Hardwell's men fired themselves into the next round of the reserve section cup with a fine win over league leaders AFC Varndeanians.

The home side were under pressure from the start as the league leaders looked to stamp their mark on the cup-tie right from the whistle. Pagham with stood the early pressure with Selby and Gilchrist firm at the back and grew in confidence. The darting runs from Parkinson were starting to cause problems for the visitors. Pagham were relying on breakaways and on twenty five minutes they were awarded a free kick on the edge of the area. Parkinson took control and blasted the ball high into the top corner giving the Lions the lead. This only lasted ten minutes when a Varndeanians attack caused trouble in the home defence and the ball ending up in the net.
This pushed Pagham into life and the goal of the game came as Parkinson out wide saw the visiting keeper off his line and fired in a angled shoot over his head and into the net restoring the home sides lead. Rafferty increased the Lions lead just after the break after combining with Frangou down the touch line before cutting in and beating the keeper.
Parkinson completed his well deserved hat-trick from the penalty spot on sixty five minutes. AFC Varndeanians Reserves managed to pull one back with fifteen minutes remaining from a free kick which somehow found a way round the wall. With the minutes ticking away Pagham were awarded another penalty which Frangou scored from making the final score 5-2 sending Pagham Reserves into the next round of the Reserve Challenge Cup.
