Men's football news

Written by: Jack

Today Lewes FC shares details of a club fundraiser to help cover the men’s trip to Italy to compete in the finals of the Fenix Trophy, taking place in Lake Garda, May 10-12.

Whether by sipping on a pitch-side Aperol spritz, donning a special edition bucket hat, chaperoning kids to play in youth football festival at the Pan or dusting off your boots to be on the team sheet itself out in Italy there are many ways fans can contribute.  

There are three main ways you can help (and you can take part in all three!). 

  • Donations and Rewards

By making a donation to the cause, you can pick up a special edition bucket hat, cap or t-shirt. See all donation and merch offers here

You can also purchase specific once in a lifetime opportunities – such as being a mascot, being part of the playing squad itself, or nabbing a limited-edition embroidered match worn shirt. Head over here to check out the offers. 

  • Youth 5 a-side Football Festival

On Saturday May 4, the Dripping Pan will host a youth 5 a-side tournament for age groups from U7s all the way up to U15s, overseen by Tony and Joe and refereed by our own first team players! Team tickets will open on Tuesday next week so get them while they last. Aside from on-pitch tekkers, the day will see plenty of food and drink options as well as fun football themed competitions. Team tickets will be available from Tuesday but anyone can drop in on the day to see how it’s going!

  • Festa Italia

Kicking off the Bank Holiday in style, the Dripping Pan will host an Italian-themed festa, ‘Birra Magnifica’, on the evening of Friday May 3rd, showcasing and celebrating the best of our local breweries, cider mills and distilleries – come to sample a range of Sussex beers, spirits and Italian cocktails, and enjoy a variety of super fresh Italian food offerings whilst dancing to DJ Beach coming all the way from Brighton! 

And since this is a big weekend, what better way to cap it off than a big Picnic on the Pan, on Sunday May 5th, 11am-3pm. With food and drink options available, bring a blanket and enjoy the Bank holiday sunshine (fingers crossed!). This is your chance to experience the pitch up close and a free for all kick around. 

We will have stalls dotted about in the grounds, so if you fancy a little light shopping or browsing, we’ve got that too! 

Get this in your diary now – tickets and more details available soon. 

Finally, if you want to make a no strings attached donation to help send the team to Italy and make club history, you can do here and we will be very very grateful! 

Many of the above are limited in number – when they’re gone they’re gone, so get in quick!

Ci vediamo lì!
