Match preview

By Steve Roberts

So the 2018/19 season is upon us, as the anticipation builds we enter are first ever season in the top flight of county football. Many wouldn't have predicted this from the humble beginnings of Sunday league football at Shinewater Lane, but dreams sometimes beggar belief.

We start our inaugural campaign in the SCFL premier with a visit from Saltdean United. Saltdean were amongst the front runners last year but even by bosses Damion Freeman own admission they lacked the team spirit that could have put them in contention for promotion. So it's a much changed squad that visit Priory Lane this Saturday full of youth and vigour. Though despite a newly rebulit squad they will prove a very strong opposition with plenty of new additions from Lewes FC.

Preseason proved solid if unspectacular for Saltdean as they look to re build this season but with a young and hungry squad looking to prove there worth, they will be a tough nut to crack under the guidance of Freeman. Expect to find them at the pointy end come end of season, but it possibly might be a good time for the Wanderers to face them before they've perhaps gelled properly so it should prove to be an intriguing game for both sets of fans as a new dawn ushers in for both sets of supporters.
