The lions start their 2017/18 FA Cup odyssey with a visit to Arundel. Last year the Lions walloped the Mulletts 3-1 in the league early in the season, winning at Mill Road, Scott Murfin bagging a brace. The Lions progress in the FA Cup went well until the 1st round qualifying. Dulwich Hamlet came with big dreams, a big band in the crowd, and won easily 3-0 against a far from disgraced Pagham side. Arundel have had a mixed pre-season, losing 4-0 to Peacehaven, but thrashing Worthing United 4-0 also whilst scraping a 1-0 against Hailsham Town. With Pagham joint-bosses Richie Hellen & Tom Simmonds having steered their new side to a pre-season without a defeat, including impressive wins against Shoreham & Fareham Town, this FA Cup game against local rivals may see us set up for the perfect start in the League at home to Horsham YMCA on 12th August
