I think we should turn this into a thing.  Let’s retaliate with a few “who the **** are Lewes” banners, and get a few anti-Lewes chants going. We can even invent our own derogatory nickname for them, like LOSE-es, LOO-is or EEEEEWis.

You’re just a small town in Brighton.

Retaliate against Lewes FC with banners and chants?! Really?! They are just having a laugh - good on them! They’d give anything to be in our position in the football pyramid - so let them mock and have fun, it’s harmless!

Not again…. 😂 Read my post from further up the thread where I’ve very clearly said that I appreciated their humour and the randomness.

I just thought it might be fun to have a good natured pop back and a bit of a laugh… maybe we could even form a totally random link with their fans. I guess that tone didn’t come across well in my post as that’s two people now that thought I was genuinely angry at a seventh tier football club. 🤣

Lewes FC have a lovely set up, owned by their fans (including me...) and some of the best graphics advertising their games.

They were pioneers in paying their women's FC properly, which is why they are in the women's championship. As a Lewes born and bred, Bristol based Red (and black) I think we should sing their praises, despite being hijacked by a g*shead....

I thought the spirit of your original post was obvious 😄

I think that would be hilarious - "You're just a shit Eastbourne Borough"

Apologies! I only read the one post and thought it very strange you had the hump with Lewes FC! Wahey ... 🤣👊✌️

Removed the blokes surname, but my guess is that this is why:

"Volunteer of The Week'! This week we caught up with Supporters Club member Terry [surname]. Terry is originally a Bristolian and a lifelong Bristol Rovers fan but he now shares his allegiances with Lewes FC and spends many of his Saturdays down at the Pan carrying out vital maintenance work.

We asked Terry - mid-hammer blow - those three all important questions. He considered each one carefully before replying with his soft Bristol lilt...

Why did you choose to volunteer for Lewes FC?

“I don’t think I actually did volunteer - it just happened. I was here one day and some-one said, ‘You’ll do this won’t you?’ and next thing I knew I was painting toilets!”

Which team would you most like us to beat?

“Always Bristol City”

If you could put a message on a billboard for all the world to see, what would it be?

“Try and get on with life: don’t fret, don’t hassle people, don’t be extreme!”"

 

Not sure I believe that last sentence of his! Pretty funny though, fair play to him if he's the culprit!

I think I may have met this guy. Was at The Dripping Pan back in March, when City Women beat Lewes Women 3-0. Saw a random guy in a Rovers shirt & got chatting to him; I think he said he was from Eastville(?) but had moved down to Sussex & become a fan of Lewes (men & women) too. Wore a Rovers shirt deliberately as City were playing.

I think I had uploaded the photo already, but here is my photo of the board at Lewes from when I was there...
Good model that they have down in Lewes; passionate supporters supporting equal opportunities

That’s one up on Rovers, by having a game that’s been sold out! 👍

I live in Lewes, as do a fair few other City fans living in the town or nearby. It’s a lovely place with a slightly renegade spirit. The club is great, fan owned, not for profit, all about equality. Mike Bayly recently voted The Dripping Pan as no.1 in his recent book ‘British Footballs Greatest Grounds’

I do know of the suspect sag in question, he’s also responsible for a gas scarf fixed to the back of the main stand. Wouldn’t it be great if this ‘hilarious’ prank backfired and it became the catalyst for some kind of connection between City & Lewes...

I’m up the road in Newick, as to a connection, their are plenty of good pubs to connect in at Lewes . I have been to Lewes FC numerous times , my son played for their U18’s, I know the grounds man , Roger, however it is a bloody long way from Bristol for a social. They do put up a collection of other clubs scarfs at the back of their stand, maybe a large Bristol City addition could be fun?

Harvey's brewery of Lewes seem to have a pretty good estate of tied houses in Sussex.  I used to be partial to a pint of Harvey's Best when I drank in their London pub, the Cat's Back near Wandsworth Bridge.

Harvey’s is basically a religion down here. The brewery dominates the town and has done since the 1700’s

Can second that, usual choice of beer when visiting family in Sussex. Dark Star is also acceptable, although no longer independent.
