LANGNEY WANDERERS 1 (Buckett 9) Byrne sent off 88 (2nd booking)
EASTBOURNE UNITED ASSOCIATION 2 (Clarke 28 Baitup 80)
Once upon a time there was a team in Eastboune called Shinewater Association. They played on a pitch behind the village hall, but found their progress hamped by a poor pitch, vandalism, and the near impossibility of getting permission to erect floodlights. In 2003 they opted to merge with Eastbourne United and the new club was rather inelegantly renamed Eastbourne United Association. Since then they’ve played their home games at United’s ground, The Oval. But that is only half the story.
