Arundel Football Club’s preparations for the upcoming Southern Combination League Premier Division campaign got under way on Saturday.

Division-higher Bostik League South side Lewes were the visitors to Mill Road and ran out 3-0 victors.

Mullets manager Richard Towers is not fazed by results at this stage of the season and was satisfied with his side’s performance.

He said: “I was quite pleased with how we performed on Saturday. It was our first friendly and we put up a good show against a decent team.”

Things have been quiet at Arundel over the summer with just one incoming.

Towers has signed 18-year-old Elliott Dollner from Burgess Hill for the upcoming season.

One potential departure could see star striker Asa Nicholson make the move to division-higher Horsham. The frontman is currently on trial with the Hornets as they cast their eye over him.

Towers said: “I’d never stand in a player’s way if they want to go higher. Asa is more than capable of playing at that level – we’ll just wait and see but I’d like him back here with us next season.”
