Results 15th November

Postby Scotty Mac » Mon Nov 15 2010, 23:26

Hassocks III 5-3 Balcombe

Hassocks ran out 5-3 winners in a difficult game against Balcombe at a very very very foggy Beacon to give Steve Spies the perfect start to his managerial reign

Ollie Lambert got the opener with a shot from distance that rolled into the corner past a seemingly very bemused Balcombe keeper. He made up for this though with a superb save from debutant Jamie Weston which was the catalyst for the visitors to go down the other end just a minute later and equalise with a shot from that was well placed inside the post.

Richard Thomas made it 2-1 with a powerful run and shot and added the third from the penalty spot after Lambert made the most of being clipped. Weston made it 4-1 before half time with a clever volley from a free-kick.

After the turnaround the fog had become so bad that the stand was not viewable from the dugout, but the referee gave it time to clear and it did so rather clearly. A pretty boring second half followed until Balcombe pulled one back when a pacey attacker rounded Hassocks youth team 'keeper Reece Wickwar and finished well. Weston then split the defence open with a superb pass on the counter attack to allow Thomas to make it 5-2 with his hat-trick, and Balcombe made it a nervey last few minutes when Wickwar did well to block a shot from distance but could do nothing as the rebound was smashed in from a couple of yards.

Good game in difficult circumstances given all the fog about. Willingdon at home next for the thirds and a rare chance to play a Saturday game at the Beacon!

We currently only have one pitch, so yes you will be on it!!

Unfortunately we dont have sky, and now Iraq goals has stopped broadcasting I'm not sure if it will be on in the clubhouse.

I'll try and stream the game through my laptop, but I cant guarantee the quality, or if it will work!

See you Saturday

Is this the same Jamie Weston who left St Francis because he did not want to be sub for the 1st team or play for the reserves. :lol: No couldn't be. This was a Mid sussex league game. :lol: :lol:
Did Terry Gascias play?

Not really. It just seems strange that he was not happy being sub in County League Division 1, so goes and plays in the Mid Sussex league. As they say, we all find the level we are happy with. In my opinion, the players that have left recently have been replaced by better players.

Jamie is not allowed to play anything above 3rd team yet as the transfer has not gone through!

This is posted in the wrong section, this being 'Brighton & Hove District Football League', i'm sure there is a Mid Sussex thread! #-o
