This Friday 3rd May 2019 we travel down to Lancing in West Sussex to take on Horsham FC in The Bostik League South East Division, playoff final, 7.30pm kick off.

After a thrilling end to our playoff semi final on Monday evening, beating Hastings United 3-2 after extra time, we now turn our focus to Friday where we face Horsham FC in the final.

We took on Friday’s opponents away in Lancing only a few weeks ago in March where we came away with a point after a goalless draw, though arguably we should’ve come away with all 3 points.

This is our last match of the season and hopefully we can finish the campaign on a high!

Admission prices are:

Adults: £9.00
Senior Citizens over 60: £5.00   
Under 18s & Students: £5.00   
Under 16s: £1.00

Ground Address PLEASE NOTE THEY ARE GROUND SHARING AT THE SUSSEX COUNTY FA HEADQUARTERS:

Culver Road, Lancing BN15 9AX

We are expected to take lots of supporters to the game, which is fantastic, but please be aware that kickoff is at a slightly earlier time of 7.30pm, and because it’s a Friday night on a bank holiday weekend, traffic will most likely be a problem!

Directions below, please note that Horsham FC play in Lancing, AND NOT IN HORSHAM. (Please also do not get confused with Horsham YMCA who are an entirely different club).

Directions to the Sussex County FA Headquarters & 3G:

Culver Road, Lancing, West Sussex BN15 9AX

The ground at Lancing has limited parking and will be reserved for match officials, players and named officials of the two clubs, the Bostik League, the FA and County FA. Spectators are asked to park in the two public car parks off North Road or, where allowed, on local streets. Stewards will be on hand at the junction of North Road/Culver Road to advise drivers.

IMPORTANT: Whenever possible please try to ‘car-share’ (www.westsussexcarshare.com). This will help protect the environment and reduce the pressure on parking at the venue – which is extremely limited.

Parking in Lancing

The ground at Lancing has limited parking and will be reserved for match officials, players and named officials of the two clubs, the Bostik League, the FA and County FA.

These are located on North Farm Road and Queensway, as well as street parking along North Road and at Lancing Station/Asda. See map for details.

All car parks are pay-and-display (£1.20 for up to 2 hours, free after 6.00pm), and have disabled bays.

Parking is strictly forbidden on Culver Road itself and cars may be removed.

We would request that all drivers and pedestrians respect our residential neighbours when entering and leaving Sussex County FA. For matches, events and courses there will normally be parking attendants to assist.
