“We aim to be at the centre of our community and be a positive influence on those who are part of us.”

Anyone who works within central and local government, emergency services, serving military and our NHS sectors will be offered half price entry to Lancing’s home league match with AFC Uckfield Town on February, 10 - for ‘Public Service Day’.

Free entry will be allowed to all adults accompanied by a full paying child for Lancers’ home meeting with Pagham on March, 10. A collection on behalf of the Sussex Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (SASBAH) will go around on the day, while county disability league members will also be in attendance.

‘Ultra Day’ welcomes all under-18 supporters in for free for Lancing’s game against Arundel on March, 17, then Lancers final game of the season (April, 21) - at home to Littlehampton Town - will be ‘Pay what you like’.
