Home   /   Lewes FC finish triumphant in their European debut 

Sussex side Lewes FC finish their European debut with a 1-0 victory, despite facing tough defending by FC Oslo in the Fenix trophy.  

“The most iconic game in the Dripping Pan’s history” is what was quoted by the commentator on Lewes’s YouTube channel before the game began – with the first half especially proving to be a game to remember for the Rooks. 

The tournament debutants provided a fantastic early display, demonstrating a constant attacking threat.

Kalvin Lubombo-Kalala proved to be Lewes’s dangerman, scoring the only goal of the match in the 16th minute of the game. Crossed into the box by Deon Moore, the ball got to the end of Lubombo-Kalala’s head where he tucked it into the bottom left corner. 

The rest of the game proved to be a quiet one, but the Rooks handled the pressure well to come on top over the inform Norwegian fourth division champions FC Oslo. 

On the subject of the visitors, they will be disappointed in their back-to-back 1-0 defeats in the Fenix trophy. However, being unlucky to have their two opening games away, they still have a chance of redemption in their final two games, with both of which commencing at their home in Norway. 

A positive that FC Oslo may take from their defeat today was that they defended well, with their goalkeeper giving a man-of-the-match worthy performance with his brilliant and consistent saves. 

Showcasing to a highly energetic atmosphere of over 1100 fans, Lewes FC’s European debut definitely proved to be a night to remember.
