Tuesday 25 November
Eastbourne Town v Haywards Heath Town in the RUR Cup
Eastbourne Town cruised into the
quarter-finals of the RUR Charity Cup with an emphatic 4-1 victory
over Haywards Heath Town. Eastbourne got off to a perfect start when
Matt McLean netted after just 3 minutes - his 12th goal of the
season. After the quick start the game settled down with both teams
going for it but with Eastbourne always looking the more lively and
likely to score; however it remained 1-0 until half time. Seven
minutes into the second half Eastbourne got their second with a
fantastic strike from the energetic and combative Ross Sutton. A
free kick outside the Haywards Heath box went sideways and Sutton
smashed it in from outside the box, the ball dipping just below the
cross bar and above the keepers despairing reach. Eastbourne were
caught cold after the restart though with Haywards Heath getting one
back almost immediately, a neat moving leaving a free shot into the
net from the middle of the penalty box. For a brief period it looked
as if Haywards Heath might get back into it, but the introduction of
two subs by Eastbourne, Rowan Johnson and George Robinson, steadied
the ship. Robinson in particular made a difference with two crosses
from him from the right leading to the two goals that ultimately
sealed the victory. The goals were headed in by Dryer then Turner
and gave Eastbourne a deserved victory against plucky opponents.

Eastbourne Town 6 Crawley Down Gatwick 1
Saturday 15 November
Crawley Down Gatwick went ahead early doors and held out until injury time at the end of the first half when Matt McLean scored another important goal to get Town back in the game. Town went ahead early in the second half through Jack Turner. But then Town keeper Greg Nessling had to come off and outfield player Ross Sutton deputised in goal. Any worries that this might upset Town were dismissed when Dan Smith made it 3-1. The game was then finished off with three from goal machine Liam Baitup to make it 6-1 to Town at the finish. Another great result for Town!
