It wasn't a night to remember,
especially for two players who'd appeared for the
First Team on Tuesday. Freddie Barker received a red
card, and Josh Heyburn broke two fingers !!
Peacehaven led at half time thanks to
a Freddie Barker goal following a goalmouth
scramble. They couldn't seem to find the fluency
they'd played with on Sunday, but seemed to be
heading for a somewhat fortunate victory until
conceding a penalty in the 84th minute.
The kick was saved by Josh
Heyburn, but Southwick followed up to convert the
rebound. In injury time Freddie Barker, booked
earlier in the game, was cautioned for kicking the
ball away - and so received his marching orders.
It was only in the dressing room
after the game that Josh Heyburn, who'd been in
pain, realised there was a serious problem after
taking his glove off. He was taken to hospital where it was confirmed he has 2 broken fingers.
He will be out of action for a minimum of 6 weeks.
"It was a disappointing night all
round" said manager Shaun Saunders. "I'm
disappointed for Josh because he's been in great form
and had recently been picked for Sussex, and I'm
disappointed in the team because it wasn't the kind
of performance you'd expect from them"
On Sunday, they travel to
Sidlesham in The Sussex FA Youth Cup.
Scorer:- Barker 22.
Heyburn, Beaty, Saunders,
Tyler (Hammond), Massen, Cullinane, Panther, Whelan, Lago,
Robinson-Webster (Measures 75), Barker.
