Fixture update: Town's game against East Preston on Saturday 27 September has been cancelled due to East Preston's progression in the FA Cup. The fixture will be rearranged.

SCFL Division 1
Eastbourne Town 1 Newhaven 1

Tuesday 16 September

Eastbourne Town dominated the first half and went ahead in the final minute of the first half with a fine header from Dom Clarke. It was good to see the newly returned Liam Baitup come on early in the second half for Town and until half way through the second half it seemed Town would take all the points. However the sending off of Newhaven's Scott Marshall for a second yellow galvinised the away team and after this it was Newhaven that looked most likely to score. Town were put under pressure by the ten men and this led to Town stalwart Adam Davidson was sent off for a despairing mistimed tackle having being judged to be the last man. This was Adam's last game for Town - he has been a great player for Town and we wish him well. Newhaven finally broke through with a penalty on 90 minutes converted by Tyler Goatcher despite a fine effort by Town goalkeeper Greg Nessling, who got a hand to it but not enough to keep it out. At the end honours even but strange that Newhaven only started playing when reduced to ten men. Town lacked a bit of composure to close out a game they should have won, perhaps missing Steve Elliott's leadership at the back.
