Today the Hillians play their first warm-up game for the new season against Lancing FC of the Southern Combination Premier League. Last season they finished 4th in their league and it will be nice to see ex-Hillians defender Danny Gainsford who has just re-signed for ‘The Lancers’.
Lancing Football Club had it’s origins in 1938 with a group of youngsters who used to kick about on Monks Recreation Ground which is adjacent to the club’s present home. The club was founded in 1941 as an all sports club and known as Lancing Athletic.
Tickets are just £3 and directions to their ground can be found here.
