Hollington United kept their slim title hopes alive with a couple of wins in the Premier Division of the East Sussex Football League.

They won 4-2 against third-placed Peche Hill Select on Saturday. Danny Woodley, Darren Goodridge, Shane Ryan and Kenny McNaughton all netted for United with Nicky Stiles and Martin Reynolds grabbing the replies.

The following Tuesday they edged out Polegate Town 3-2 through Woodley (2) and Andy Garman. Hollington sit 10 points adrift of leaders St Leonards Social who only have to win their final match to retain the title.

Rock-a-Nore remain in second place after Kale Williams and Shane Rancic netted in a 2-0 success over Peasmarsh & Iden. Polegate overcame Robertsbridge United 2-0 thanks to goals from Louis Dixon and James McConnell.

Goals from Russell and Luke Le Beau could not prevent Hooe Sports from concluding their season with a 7-2 defeat against Sedlescombe Rangers whose scorers were Pip Hatch (4), Steve Davey (penalty), Lucas Bradbury and Gergely Banvolgyi.
