FA Women's Cup Second Round
Eastbourne Town 1 Queens Park
11 January 2015 at The Saffrons
Town Ladies gave a fantastic performance to beat Queens Park Rangers in the Second Round of the FA
Queens Park Rangers played well but squandered their chances -
including missing a penalty towards the end of the first half. Town
had one clear chance in the first half when the ball fell to Janine
Daly inside the QPR box but she volleyed just wide. Credit must go
to the Town goalkeeper for a series of great saves,
particularly in the ten minutes just before half time as Town
appeared to tire. Although QPR seemed to have gained the upper hand
by the end of the first half in the second half Town competed
equally. Then after 52 minutes, as if scripted, Jacey Samson, in her first game for years after
a nasty injury,
scored the winner.
The goal came from a corner that the QPR keeper failed to hold and
Samson was quickest to react to the spilled ball slotting it into
the bottom corner of the net. QPR pressed for an equaliser
but despite a few scares the Town defence stood steadfast. Eastbourne Ladies now face Derby County Ladies at
home in the third round - one of the last 32 in the competition! The
next round will be played at the Saffrons on Sunday 1 February 2015
kick off 2pm.

RUR Charity Cup
Eastbourne Town 3
Broadbridge Heath 1
Tuesday 2 December 2014
Goalmouth scramble Eastbourne Town v Broadbridge Heath
Eastbourne Town powered into the
semi-finals of the RUR Charity Cup with a 3-1 win over Broadbridge
Heath, with three goals in the first half sealing it for Town. The
Town team saw a welcome return to the Saffrons for Layton Schaaf,
back in a Town shirt after returning from East Grinstead. Town's
habit of starting well continued with Matt McLean and Dan Smith
putting Town two ahead with goals after nine and ten minutes
respectively. Town continued in the ascendancy for most of the half
and Dan Smith got a second on thirty eight minutes to put Town three
clear at half time. Broadbridge came out all guns blazing in the
second half to try and get back into the game and after a spell of
pressure Merv Bhujun pulled one back on fifty five minutes.
Broadbridge then had a brief spell when they looked like they might
make a game of it with the ball flying across the Town box a few
times, but never quite finding a Broadbridge head or foot to put it
in. Town then stepped up a gear, dominated possession and closed the
game out for the last half hour with only a few goalmouth scrambles
in the last few minutes to give Broadbridge hope.
Town now have a home tie against the winner of Lancing v Arundel in
the semi-final. The other semi being Loxwood v Crowborough.
Eastbourne Town team: Nessling, Henson, Sutton, McLean, Turner,
Radley, Ellis, Hollobone, Baitup, Smith, Schaaf. Subs: Darby,
Clarke, Robinson, Johnson, Paul.
Broadbridge Heath team: Fisher, Balfour, Bevan, Carruthers, Flack,
Attwater, Moore, Waddingham, McNab, Bhujun, Sultan. Subs: Andrade,
Wicking, Legrange, Love.
