Town Celebrate the Winning Goal

A hard-fought match at Lancing FC's ground saw Eastbourne Town crowned RUR Charity Cup winners. With no goals at half time the game took off 10 minutes into the second half with Loxwood going down to ten men. Town's Dan Smith was through on goal and tripped by Loxwood's Tom Familton, who was sent off. Rather than fold Loxwood went on the attack and for the next twenty minutes looked the most likely to score - which they did on 81 minutes through Shaun Findlay. With only minutes to go Loxwood looked like they had the cup won, but Eastbourne piled forward and deservedly equalised on 88 minutes with a lovely goal from Dan Smith who controlled the ball on his chest, turned and smashed the ball into the net in one fluid movement. It looked like extra time but deep into injury time Jack Turner swept home the winner from a Dan Ellis free-kick to give Eastbourne Town the cup. Perhaps a cruel end to Loxwood's brave ten man second half performance but Town's power and quality won through in the end.

Eastbourne Town Chairman David Jenkins commented, "
Our opponents played really well but in the end the never say die spirit of the Town boys won through. Well deserved thanks and praise rightly go to John Lambert, his management team and of course the players for a magnificent achievement. But I also want to thank everyone behind the scenes for all the unseen hard work which contributes to success on the pitch. Well done everyone and thank you for all your hard work for the club."
