    Good for them.

    Sadly their casual support will be taken from them by Brighton’s obvious need to fill their new White Elephant just down the road when it’s complete.

  2. Thanks for featuring this. As you may know – Danny Last (from http://europeanfootballweekends.co.uk) and myself from http://theballisround.co.uk have been firm fans for quite a while and had tried to make some supporter led changes at the club. The crowd of 600 was a big milestone for the club – as you have said it was significantly up on what was expected based on time of year and opponents. The club are offering free admission to all under 16’s this season and there will be a number of other incentives and ideas that we will try and introduce.

    The club is 125 years old this year and anyone who needs an idea of a game to go to on the 18th September please consider a trip down to the Dripping Pan for the celebratory game versus Chelmsford City.

    Perplexed and a little irritated by Martin’s comment above. Why will Lewes’s casual support be taken away by Brighton’s massively impressive gleaming new stadium? Will Tony Bloom nefariously get a law passed compelling the good people of Lewes to attend the Amex rather than the Dripping Pan? Can’t see any reason why the two clubs can’t continue to live in harmony together although I’m sure it would be sensible for the Rooks to play home games when the Albion are away where possible. Good luck to Lewes FC. With good people like Danny Last backing them I’m sure the future is so bright they’ll have to wear shades.
