DARTS: We played at The Millers Arms last week with a weekend side due to holidays and work commitments. We lost the singles darts 5-2 with victories for Dave Goodsell and Guy Ballard and we lost all the pairs matches. There were 100+ scores for Dave[140, 100], Kevin Dixon[2 x 125] and Guy[100]. We lost pushpenny 4-1 with Dave Fortsch our only winner but there were ‘goldwatches’ for Michael Stone and Dave. Tonight we are playing Mountfield Club ‘A’ at The Old King John in the knockout cup 8p.m.

FOOTBALL: The Bridge 2nd team returned to league action after the break with a Macron East Sussex Football League Division 5 home match against the improving Sedlescombe Rangers III. Back in October we lost 2-1 away and we lost again in what can only be described as our worst performance yet. The first half saw both sides miss chances to open up the scoring but it was Rangers who scored first 5 minutes before the break. The second period got worse on 52 minutes when a cross was thumped into his own net by skipper Matt Hardy and with The Bridge failing to put two passes together the visitors took advantage scoring in the 70th and 75th minutes to complete an easy 4-0 victory. Tomorrow the 1st team are at home to Hawkhurst United while the 2nd team travel to lowly Icklesham Casuals II with both matches K.O. 2p.m. Our next fund-raiser is on Saturday 28th January 2017 when we are holding a Disco at Robertsbridge Club from 8p.m. Entrance is just £2.
