Southwick: Club Profile
No side has inflicted as bad a home defeat on us; Southwick running out 7-0 winners at Broadhall Way in February 1988. If ever we needed to know that our 1987-8 season was going in the wrong direction, that match showed it. And down we went at the end of term. It even makes our 4-1 home win the previous season pale into insignificance. And a 5-4 win for us at theirs in September 1986.
By the time we returned to Division One, they’d gone in the opposite direction. And their 1991-2 Division Two campaign was even worse. It’d be their last in the Isthmian League; the Wickers returning to the Sussex County Football League.

This isn’t a place that we completely au fait with. If you’re in the same boat, you’ll find it on the south coast close to Brighton. For this, then, take a trip around the M25; our choice is the counter-clockwise direction. Only just, mind. In any case, you want the M23 south.
After the M23 comes to an end, continue onto the A23 for another 16 or so miles before bearing left onto the A27 towards Worthing. Continue for another 2.5 miles and take the A293 exit for Shoreham. Then, turn right for the A270.
Once you’ve gone nearly a mile, take a left for Hadrian Avenue and then the first exit at the roundabout for Manor Hall Road. Turn right onto Old Barn Way for the ground.
The car park at the ground isn’t huge. But does it need to be? There’s local street parking opportunities too.
Services to: BRIGHTON (for LONDON ST PANCRAS), HOVE (for LONDON VICTORIA)
Come out of the station onto the approach road and turn left onto Manor Hall Road. Take the second left after that for Old Barn Way.
