Bexhill Town 0 - 2 Robertsbridge United

Sedlescombe Rangers 2 - 0 Battle Baptists

Took in the game down at the Polegrove and Robertsbridge deserved the win. First 20 minutes it looked only a matter of time until Bexhill broke through but Robertsbridge defended well and in the second half it was a different story.

Great first goal, had at least 3 great opportunities and then in the final minute the player (unknown) broke through and slotted home to seal the win

At the same time we followed the Battle twitter account who kindly updated as and when goals went in. Sedlescombe scored after 8 minutes and with that the case at half time, things were looking good for us. Then with 25 minutes to go it flashed up that Sedlescombe had a second. From a source at the game I hear Sedlescombe were worthy winners but this is second hand opinion so don't slate me if that isn't the case.

But... All this means that a single point in Sidley's final league match at home to Robertsbridge will win us the title. Given that we had three matches forfeited against us this season, it seems just that the title now looks like it won't be decided on goal difference. Not taking anything for granted, Robertsbridge were very good this afternoon and deserved their win so it won't be easy but we have it in our hands and cannot blame anyone if we don't take the crown now.

Following that we will have a cup final against Sedlescombe Rangers and could yet do the double. What a terrific season it could end up being for the Blues.
