Tipping Angmering for big things this season.
Biggest thing for Angmering this season will be runners up at the best as Newtown will walk the league again this season. Saw them out play Storrington 1st team (who included Tim Martin from Cowfold) on Saturday and they are only going to get stronger
Angmering will be strong but if they are building their title hopes on signing average players then they won't challenge Newtown
I tip them for a good cup run and maybe a final in the VWW or Intermediate cup.
Biggest problems that I can see are for Lancing United. From what I can gather their 1st XI manager has gone to Storrington reserves and 3/4 of the team have followed
Saw the 1st half of their game Saturday against Rustington reserves and I recognised half the team from watching Lancing United last season. The manager must have some good pulling power as the reserve west league is poor compared to WSFL Prem, but the players will obviously be loyal to their manager.
Last years captain of Lancing United, Glen Souter seems to now be in charge and he appears to be struggling to get players in if you read their website. As the old saying goes, "good players dont make good managers" and I reckon Glen may well struggle this season. Will be a shame if he does as he is a good lad and a great player as well. Just hope he gets some backing from the club and some of the players as I enjoyed watching Lancing last season.
Perhaps that is why Stuart Smith is a good manager as he was a mediocre player and I can't remember Uniteds old manager ever playing any sort of standard
Could be an interesting time this season in the WSFL but IMO it will be the same story as last year with Newtown strolling it with their pipe and slippers on. I even back them to win County 3 the season after as well
