FOOTBALL: The Bridge failed to make it into their third cup final after losing to fellow Premier Division Sidley United 2-1 in a tight game of very few chances with both defences solid at The Clappers. In a very uneventful first half neither side had a shot on goal with both defences in control with man of the match Michael Stone marshalling The Bridge defence. The second period was more lively with both teams trying to find a way through and it was the visitors who had the first shot on goal in the 66th minute but Bridge keeper Grant Lewis saved well and he was on hand 5 minutes later to turn another Sidley shot round the post. The deadlock was broken on 80 minutes when The Bridge opened the scoring from a Curtis Coombes corner which was headed in by Ben Hardy but the lead was lost five minutes later when Sidley scored from a goalmouth scramble and two minutes later the visitors secured the win when The Bridge defence allowed their striker too much room and he rounded Lewis to net the winner. Tomorrow the Bridge 1st team are at home to Bexhill Town in the Macron East Sussex Football League Premier Division K.O. 3p.m. while the 2nd team are without a game.
