FOOTBALL: The 2nd team finished their Macron East Sussex Football League Division 6 season with a 1-0 defeat at home to F.C.Westridge in a very entertaining a close encounter. Both sides had chances in the first half but neither side made the keepers make a save. The deadlock was broken 2 minutes before the break when the visitors corner was met by their unmarked striker to head home. The second period saw The Bridge push for the equaliser and driven on by man of the match Matt Hardy it was his through ball to Dominic Whittaker that created the best chance as the opposing keeper came out only to be lobbed by Whittaker who saw his effort hit the post and bounce out for a goal kick. This defeat leaves the 2nd team in 5th place. Tomorrow the 1st team are at home to Northiam ‘75 K.O. 3p.m.
