LEAGUE TITLE GLORY FOR U13 BLACKS

Having finished level top of SSYFL Division 4 with Eastbourne Borough, the U13 Blacks played off for the title on the Priory Lane Stadium 3G pitch this afternoon. The two sides finished the season with identical records, having only lost one game each - that being that they had both beaten each other once. And they played out a high tempo, high quality game that was a credit to both Clubs. Goalless at half time Saints went in front when top scorer George Murphy headed in a corner, a lead he doubled 10 minutes from time when he smashed a 20 yarder in off the underside of the bar. But agonisingly Boro scored twice in the last two minutes to take the game to extra time. And in the first half of that Saints sealed the victory when Niall Scott-McWall thumped in a penalty. Congratulations to Manager Paul Parks and all the Team who were every one of them superb today. And with 43 goals in all competitions this season George Murphy looks like finishing the season as the top U13 scorer across all divisions.

Some great results out there today. The U8Ys got a draw and a win over Premier Utd, as did the U9s against Pass + Move. The U10Bs won both their games at Premier Utd, as did the U10Ys at home to Eastbourne Town, and the U11Ys their game at Seaford Town. The U16s drew 1-1 with Lindfield, and the U18s (pictured) came from a goal behind to defeat Perrywood Sports 4-1.

Yesterday the Men’s 1st Team made it through to their second Final of the season, this time the Wisdens Sports League Cup. Goals from Phil Broom (2), George Sambrook and Tom Wilding saw  off Victoria Baptists to set up a 9th April date at the Pilot Field in Hastings with Icklesham Casuals.

MEN’S 1ST TEAM MAKE COUNTY CUP FINAL

The Men’s Team continue to scale new heights as today they reached the final of the highest and hardest to win competition that they can compete in. The comprehensive 5-1 semi final defeat of higher ranked Bexhill AAC was the fifth tough tie they have won through, and will now meet Whyke Utd of Chichester in the County Cup Final. That will be played on the 3G surface at Sussex FA headquarters in Lancing on the evening of Wednesday 4th March, and we will now start the planning and preparation for our biggest game ever. The semi final goals came from George Sambrook, Phil Broom (2), Riki Prodger, and, quite incredibly, from goalkeeper Aaron Diddams.

Look out here and on Facebook for details of the final - we hope a good number of Club members will be able to make the trip to Lancing to cheer the team on.
