3rd XI vs Southwick 1 (Home) | 31 Oct 20

Drew 2-2

Scorers: Max Messenger x2

MoM: Max Messenger

DoD: James Rollins


The 3’s had the unenviable trip to Southwick this week and the weather was horrendous.

Up until Pushback the heavens were relentless in their downpour, and Southwicks hospitality was equally shoddy. No changing rooms, no dug out and toilets in the unwelcoming sports centre.

A difficult first half was compounded by a number of cards from the trigger happy umpires. With James Rollins at one stage offered the possibility to upgrade (his already upgraded) yellow card to red- which was politely declined.

Max scored a nonchalant screamer on the reverse, roofing one from the edge of the D. And picked up another through a huge aerial from Matt Lea which had the keeper and centre back running scared.

In the end a point a piece was probably fair. Let’s hope we can play again soon.
