Devastation at Nyetimber Lane - all the pictures of Pagham FC's Storm Eunice damage

It's been a grim day for Pagham FC - their stand roof, and in fact much of the stand itself, has been ripped to pieces in Storm Eunice.

The roof of the main stand at the SCFL premier division club was lifted off this morning, blowing over a fence and into a van parked in an adjoining street. Fortunately no-one was injured. Emergency services were called at 11.30am and police attended to help make the area safe while the blockage was cleared. See pictures of the damage - sent to us by Carl Eldridge and Pagham FC themselves - on this page and the ones linked.

Pagham FC committee members and other helpers have been at the ground this afternoon clearing up what they can and assessing the extent of the damage. They were due to play a league match at home to AFC Varndeanians tomorrow (Saturday) but that has understandably been called off.

Club vice-chair Kelly Heatley told us: "There's lots of damage and the game is off tomorrow. The roof landed on two parked cars outside the ground. We managed to clear the road. But any help from volunteers tomorrow (Saturday) morning to help clear the stand and debris would be highly appreciated." Jordan Butchers, based nearby, have donated bacon and sausages for all the volunteers who help clear up on Saturday.
