FOOTBALL: Mixed fortune last week for Robertsbridge United Football Club with the 1st team needing extra time to overcome fellow Premier Division rivals Bexhill A.A.C. in the Premier Travel Chauffeurs Challenge Cup 3rd Round and the 2nd team losing at Peche Hill Select in Division 2. The 1st team took the lead after 17 minutes against Bexhill A.A.C. with a goal from Guy Ballard and that was the only goal before the break. The visitors equalised 20 minutes into the second half and despite chances at both ends the tie went into extra time. The Bridge were the fitter of the two sides and took the lead on 94 minutes with another Ballard strike and 3 minutes later Curtis Coombes increased the lead. Dom Whittaker scored a fourth 4 minutes after the re-start and man of the match Ballard completed his hat-trick 2 minutes later to set a semi-final at home to Wadhurst United or Sidley United. The 2nd team travelled to Tilekiln to face Peche Hill Select in Division 2 and held the hosts to a solitary goal in the first period but after the break The Bridge fell apart and let in four more goals despite the best efforts of man of the match Neil Gofton. Tomorrow the 1st team are at home to Northiam ‘75 in the 2nd Round of the Hastings F.A. Intermediate Cup while the 2nd team travel to Battle Baptists II in the 3rd Round of the ESFL Wisdens Sports Challenge Cup with both matches K.O. 1.30p.m.
