I must apologise: for the last few weeks of no information in the Village Voice. I have been writing it and sending it off to the paper but there is an issue with the system some where that we are trying to work out, as the paper has obviously not received it.

DARTS: Dave Goodsell and Michael Stone progressed into the semi-finals of the Pushpenny Singles last week. Tonight is Ladies Night and Mixed Pairs night at Robertsbridge Club 8p.m.

FOOTBALL: Robertsbridge United 2nd team hosted promoted Sedlescombe Rangers III in the Macron East Sussex Football League Division 5. The Bridge started strong and should have taken the lead after 20 minutes but Guy Ballard’s shot was tipped over by the visiting keeper and a minute later Ballard headed a corner wide, however, all the pressure finally got the reward on 25 minutes when Michael Stone found the top corner from 12 yards for the half time lead. Ten minutes into the second period Bradley Lyne scooped the ball over the bar but 5 minutes later man of the match Dan Goodsell slotted home a pass from Lyne. Rangers now pushed to get back into the game and a long ball out found their striker to finish neatly after 65 minutes but The Bridge held on to take the points. Tomorrow the 1st team are without a game while the 2nd team are at home to West Hill United II K.O. 3p.m.

STOOLBALL: We are training at the Cricket Ground on Thursday evenings from 6.30p.m.

Finally: we would like to send our Condolences to Nip, David and Hayley Mills on the sad death of Dawn last weekend.
