FOOTBALL: Both Robertsbridge United teams won last week by two clear goals with the 1st team winning 3-1 against Bexhill Town in the Macron East Sussex Football League Premier Division although it did not start well as poor defending allowed the visitors striker to tap in after 20 minutes and The Bridge could have levelled 5 minutes later when Guy Ballard’ snap shot was tipped over by the visiting keeper. The second period saw The Bridge level on 50 minutes when Phil Green’ cross was headed home by Ballard and Ballard gave The Bridge the lead with another header on the hour mark after some good work in midfield by man of the match Paul Barnes. The Town did score after 75 minutes only for the goal to be ruled out by the linesman’s flag and 10 minutes later Ballard was fouled in the box and Jethro Warren made no mistake with the spot kick to give The Bridge a deserved three points. The 2nd team played at West Hill United II in Division 5 and got off to a good start when Paul Rockett scored after just 3 minutes but missed chances saw the score remain 1-0 at half time. The second period saw The Bridge double their lead when substitute Joe Lyne scored on 61 minutes but it was a case of missed chances that let the home side off a heavier defeat. Tomorrow the 1st team are away to Ore Athletic at Tilekiln while the 2nd team are at home to Wittersham II with both matches K.O. 3p.m.
