FOOTBALL: The Bridge 1st team needed extra time for the second week running to overcome their opponents. The Bridge took the lead against fellow Premier Division side Northiam ‘75 after 15 minutes when Chris Phillips found the net but the visitors levelled before the break. The second period saw both defences hard to penetrate with man of the match Ben Hardy solid in the Bridge defence. Both sides pushed for a winner in extra time and it was The Bridge who took the lead when substitute Paul Barnes scored from the spot and take The Bridge into the semi-finals of the Hastings F.A. Intermediate Cup where they will face an away trip to either Bexhill Town or Rye Town. The Bridge second team lost their 3rd Round ESFL Wisdens Sports Challenge Cup to fellow Division 2 title contenders Battle Baptists II.
