Pagham F.C.

Pagham Football Club is a football club based in Pagham, near Bognor Regis, West Sussex, England. They are members of the Southern Combination Premier Division and play at Nyetimber Lane; the club was formed in 1903, starting in the Bognor & Chichester Football league, joining the West Sussex league. The club at the end of the 1965–66 season became champions of the West Sussex league Premier Division for the first time and repeated this success two more times in the 1968–69 and 1969–70 seasons; as well as the league success the club achieved two Sussex Intermediate Cup wins, in the 1966–67 and 1968–69 season. After achieving success in the West Sussex league the club joined Division Two of the Sussex County League for the 1970–71 campaign, finishing third in their first three seasons. In the 1972–73 season the club played their first FA Cup game drawing 0–0 with Chichester City, before losing 2–1 in the replay. In 1978 -- 79 Pagham finished as champions of Division Two; the club finished fourth the following season, behind champions Chichester City, but lifted the title in 1980–81 – three points clear of runners-up Peacehaven & Telscombe, who went on to win the next two titles.

Just three years however, Pagham were relegated. Two third placings followed before the Division Two championship was lifted for the second time in 1986–87. Better was to follow over the next two seasons, with successive Division One titles, as well as the League Challenge Cup in 1988–89; the club established itself as a Division One club subsequently, without reaching the heights of the late 1980s – the best season being 1992–93, when Pagham finished as runners-up to Peacehaven. 2003–04 however, saw the club finish in the bottom three, with only the earlier liquidation of St. Leonards sparing them the drop into Division Two. There was no escape in 2004–05 however, a wretched campaign saw the Lions drop back down into Division Two. In what could be viewed as a season of consolidation after a couple of poor years, 2005–06 saw the Lions only able to manage 13th place but 2006–07 saw them comfortably return to the top flight as champions, ten points clear of runners-up St. Francis Rangers. Pagham Play their home games at Nyetimber Lane, Pagham, PO21 3JY.

Before moving to Nyetimber lane the club spent their first 47 years of existence playing on various farmers’ fields until they moved onto a field adjoining the cricket club in Nyetimber Lane in 1950. A small wooded shed was provided by a local farmer which served as a changing room until the club applied to enter the County League in 1970. There was a cricket-type pavilion erected, alongside the current breeze block stand which at the time had no seats; the pavilion and an old wooden building that served as a bar were replaced by the current clubhouse, with dressing rooms behind.
