FOOTBALL: Mixed fortunes for both The Bridge teams last week with the 1st team winning at Bexhill Town and the 2nd team losing at home to Catsfield. The 1st team travelled to Bexhill Town in the Macron East Sussex Football League Premier Division hoping to respond to last weeks home 3-0 defeat against The Town and in a tight first period both defences were on top with Ben Hardy out-standing for The Bridge but in the second period The Bridge started to dominate the game and the pressure told in the 58th minute when Curtis Coombes netted and the points were secured in stoppage time when man of the match Chris Phillips scored. The 2nd team hosted Catsfield in Division 2 and did well in the first half hour to hold a rampant Catsfield but poor defending on the half hour mark allowed the visitors to head the opener and a half time lead. Five minutes into the re-start it was 2-0 and then poor defending led to another header being scored on 70 minutes for 3-0 and then The Bridge conceded two more goals in the last 10 minutes to lose 5-0 with man of the match award going to young Bradley Najar. Tomorrow the 1st team are away to Sedlescombe Rangers at Bexhill Road while the second team end their season at home to Peche Hill Select with both matches K.O. 3p.m. We have organised coaches for both the Cup Finals that the 1st team are in on Tuesday 23rd April and Tuesday 30th April leaving Robertsbridge Club at 6.15p.m. at a cost of £5 per seat. If you want to go either pop into the club and put your name on the lists or text Alan Apps 07970-897480 to reserve your seat or email as the seats will be limited.
