Eastbourne Town scrorers: Baitup 2, Smith 2, Clarke.
Eastbourne Town made it seven wins on the trot after beating Selsey 5-0 at the Saffrons. Bottom of the league Selsey strived to contain Town's potent strike force of Clarke, Baitup and Smith but to no avail. Liam Baitup opened the scoring on 17 minutes with a glancing header from a free kick out wide right. Dan Smith added two within three mintues timed at 27 and 30 on the clock, the best being a beautifully placed, powerful low shot across the keeper from the edge of the area. Baitup got his second just a minute before half time to make it 4-0 at the break.
With Town having more or less won by half time it was credit to Selsey that they didn't fold and indeed strived to find a way back into the match. Town dominated the second half but Selsey never gave up trying to counter attack. Town got a final goal through Dom Clarke on 52 minutes but was quickly followed by the only negative in the game for Town when Dan Smith pulled up with what looked like a hamstring injury.
Another good performance from Town and next Saturday they are at home Dorking Wanderers who they lost to in the first league game of the season - so lets hope they make it eight wins in a row!
