New manager, Jamie Hollis, has confirmed that Paul Ettridge will join the club for the 2024/25 season as first team coach. Ettridge joins from neighbours Shoreham FC where he was most recently manager and guided the club to 15th place. Paul was first team coach during their previous season when Shoreham secured promotion to the SCFL Premier Division.

Speaking about Paul’s addition, Hollis writes; ‘I’m delighted to have Paul on board with us, he’s a very well known and highly respected coach in Sussex. I’ve been against him a number of times over the years and enjoyed a tactical battle each time. He’s a great guy with a superb understanding of the game, matched with his ability to relay that on the training ground and he was my first choice to help strengthen us. His influence on every team he’s coached is evident and that’s a real testament to his ability.’

All at Lancing FC would like to welcome Paul to Culver Road
