Lewes FC 2012/13 Day 2: SDS V Enfield Town

Now at this time of year, clubs would normally be starting a pre-season friendly that does not mean anything at all. But not Lewes, oh no, we are a community club and so this year Lewes FC were invited along to Enfield Town to play against Fisher FC to fight it out for the Supporters Direct Sheild, Lewes FC's first chance for silverware in 5 years since they won the Conferecne South back in 2007/08. 

Lewes played in old green kit
Again, for the second day in a row I was working and so had to look out for updates from the one o clock kick off in my breaks at work, a very difficult thing to have to do. It has to be said the game does not sound like it was a thriller but from the sounds of things the Lewes team looks like a decnt outfit. It was very difficult to get any team news as apparantly there were, dissapointingly no Lewes fans there. I can confirm the game ended 1-0 to Lewes in typical fashion as it was Chris Breach who headed the ball home from a corner, will that ever get boring?

It was rather fortunate that Lewes did win as if the scores were level , a unique fans penalty to shoot out was to decide the result. In which the scores were as follows:

Lewes                                                                                      Fisher

James Boyes (photographer) Scored                                       Scored
Kevin Brook (club secutary) Scored                                        Scored
Pav (Kitman) Scored                                                               Scored
Stuart Fuller (director) Saved                                                   Saved
Sam Piper (Kitboy) Saved                                                       Scored

It was a shame that there were not enough Lewes fans to play rather than club officials having to fill in but at least in this case we are a fan owned club so it still counts!

Crabb and Walder celebrate
Overall it was a decent first game for Lewes to get in to the swing of things. I twas important to get in to the winning way as soon as possible, after all winning is a habbit! 

Lewes Team: Kieran Thorpe, Lee Cooper (trial), Chris Breach, Steve Robinson, Charlie Leach, Jack Walder, Callum Dunne, Karl Beckford, Max Howell, Steve Brinkhurst, Nathan Crabb
