Clymping Football Club will play their remaining home games at Littlehampton’s Sportsfield ground this season.

The change of homes is down to an issue with playing at their ground next to Clymping Village Hall.

Clymping chairman Dejan Stosic said: “It’s a real shame because the club has been running for over 100 years and for us to now have to ground-share is a little frustrating.

“Having said that, Rob McAlees (Littlehampton chairman), has been fantastic and we thank him for allowing us to play our home matches at The Sportsfield from now until the end of the season.”

Golds chairman McAlees had no hesitation in allowing Clymping to use The Sportsfield for the remainder of the season.

He said: “I welcome them with open arms. I’m always happy to help out a local team. At the minute the deal runs until the end of this season then we will see.”

Clymping will charge £3 for adults and £1 for concessions for their home matches at Littlehampton, with their first match at The Sportsfield against Rottingdean Village on Saturday (3pm).
