Here’s a really fun way to get/keep fit in 2016 – football fitness sessions for people of little or no (current) footballing ability
Every football fan has heard of the FA’s ‘Fit & Proper’ test, which is supposed to prevent unsavoury people from being allowed to take over a football club. At Lewes FC, it’s the fans who own their own club, not big business.
However, the Rooks are introducing their own Fit & Proper ‘test’. But we’re talking about getting you feeling fit.
The Lewes FC Community Team has created a programme to focus on people’s physical well-being: The new ‘Fit & Proper’ scheme will use football to help fans and local people become fitter via fun football sessions on the club’s Rookery 3G pitch. And, later in the year, the programme will then extend into good-eating advice and cooking workshops for the culinarily-challenged.
Commenting for the club, Community Development Manager Adam Wolecki said: “Not everyone can move like Messi, but almost anyone can kick a ball. And we are not worried about who ate all the pies, so long as the pies include some healthy options too.”
Fit & Proper launches on Sunday January 10th when the club will start running weekly football fitness sessions aimed at people of ‘little or no football ability’.
The session for women will run 4-5pm every Sunday on The Rookery 3G all-weather pitch adjacent to the club immediately followed by a men’s session from 5-6pm. The usual price will be £5 per session (£3 for unwaged) but the first sessions on January 10th are FREE.
No booking is required, just turn up, play and feel better.
Enquiries should be sent to 3G@lewesfc.com or phone Adam at Lewes FC on 01273 470 820.
“ALL THE GLORY, NONE OF THE MUD.”

It’s certainly been a busy week at The Pan with some new faces joining Darren’s squad. Winger Josh Jones has played for Darren before at Whitehawk and comes into the squad after a short period out of the game after leaving Burgess Hill Town earlier in the season. Profilic County League striker George Landais has also joined, making the short journey along the A27 from Littlehampton Town. Both are likely to feature in the squad for the game. Leaving the Pan is Richard Pacquette who has returned to parent club, Hampton & Richmond Borough. Darren has almost a full squad to choose from tomorrow with the main injury worry around Lee Carey who was forced off last week against Leiston, whilst James Hammond is suspended after his red card at East Thurrock United two weeks ago.
This will be our third meeting against Farnborough this season, having shared 11 goals in the two games so far. Alas, 8 of those have been scored by our visitors. Nobody could have legislated for the match-turning decision to send off keeper Will Godmon in the league match back in August with the score at 1-0. With no substitute keeper on the bench, George Brown did his best but in any game, you are going to concede goals when you do not have a proper keeper between the sticks. The League Cup affair back in October was a different affair as Steve Eke and Jay Lovett took a very young side to a very wet Cherrywood Road and gave a great account of themselves in the 3-2 defeat against a strong Farnborough side with our two goals coming from Robin Deen.
Farnborough’s last six matches have seen two wins, a draw and three defeats including their last run out at Hendon on Monday night. Top scorers Bobbie Dale and Harry Williams have returned to Cheltenham Town after their initial spell on loan at the start of the season although Estonian Bogdan Vastsuk, on loan from Reading, has been among the goals recently. Their away record in the league this season should give us some confidence of that elusive first win having only picked up 1 point from their 11 games on the road. Farnborough have scored an average of 1.09 goals on the road, the same as Lewes’s home record. The stats say a scoring draw, the heart says our first home win of the season.
Kick off at The Pan tomorrow is 3pm. Admission is £11 for Adults, £6 for Concessions and Kids go Free thanks to the sponsorship from Specsavers.
