Rock-a-Nore created what is probably an ADA East Sussex Football League Premier Division record by scoring an incredible 22 goals in a match.

Sean Baldwin bagged six of them, while Joseph Tutt, Brett White and Scott Ramsay all got hat-tricks in the 22-0 demolition of Hooe Sports. Stuart Holden, James Milton and Edward White scored two apiece, with Wes Irving getting the other.

Elsewhere in the top flight, Hollington United maintained their undefeated start by inflicting a 10-0 drubbing on Ticehurst. Shane Ryan plundered a four-goal salvo, Cliff Macdonald bagged a hat-trick, and John Steele, Billy Warnes and Glenn Woodhurst got one each, the latter from the penalty spot.

Iden gained their first win of the season with an impressive 4-2 victory against previously unbeaten Ore Athletic. Richard Weller opened the scoring for the home side, but they were pegged back before the break by a Dean Phillips bicycle kick.

Weller then scored his second on the hour as Iden retook the lead and they went further ahead when Rob Levett struck. Phillips got a second for Athletic before Levett made the game safe.

Michael Stone gave a man of the match display as Robertsbridge United won 3-2 away to St Leonards Social. Lewis Baker gave United a 10th minute lead, and second half goals from Toby Blackman and Adam Hardy ensured the three points were theirs. Sean Noble scored twice from the spot for Social, his first briefly bringing his team back into the match in the second period.
