Cards off to the Dripping Pan

Brian Caffarey - 27th August 2009

Cards off to the Dripping Pan Lewes v Woking
3pm on Saturday 29 August 2009

The Cards start their Bank Holiday fixtures with a trip to the Dripping Pan. Lewes, like us, were relegated last season but, with financial troubles still paramount, don’t look well placed to mount a challenge for the play-offs. This seems to be confirmed by their start to the season, with four draws and one defeat so far. Graham will be hoping for three points from this trip, but we’ll probably need to be a bit more clinical in the finishing department than we’ve been recently to achieve that.


Earlier this week Graham told me that he expected to have everyone fit apart from long-term absentees, Jon Boardman and Billy Hussey. Presumably, Aswad Thomas will resume at left-back, with Sam Sloma moving forward to the left of midfield. What formation Graham will play up front is anyone’s guess!


Manager Steve Ibbitson has breathed some new life into the Rooks since he took over towards the end of last season. In spite of all their financial woes – the club has a winding-up order hanging over it – Ibbitson managed to keep quite a few of the players from last season, including Joe Keehan, son of the former manager, Anthony Barness and the highly-experienced Danny Cullip. While Lewes have yet to notch a win, they appear to have had the better of several of the games they drew, with Dan Beck and Sam Crabb threatening up front and Rikki Banks starring in goal. Securing a 2-2 draw at Newport County indicates that they can’t be taken lightly.


2 Sep 2008: Woking 1 Lewes 1
20 Dec 2008: Lewes 0 Woking 2

The home draw with Lewes was of course Kim Grant’s last game in charge.
