Very Good Win .A


An excellent team performance, after last Saturdays defeat, gave the lads a well deserved 3 pts against a side who had won their previous 5 matches . This was no fluke as on 70 mins we were down to 10 players via a red card and from 77 to 87 down to 9 via a sin bin decision .Fair enough we were leading 3-1 , but , even though they had a full eleven they rarely looked like scoring even Arundels goal was from a penalty .The match played in windy conditions started at a fair pace with Seaford looking the better side but it was fairly even until the 27th minute when Buckett stooped low to beat a defender with a header from Hollands left wing cross .This seemed to rattle Arundel and in Seafords next attack we scored again when Scott Dartnall shot from about 35 yards (30 metres ) and the ball flew into the net .If it had been on Sky no doubt goal of the day replayed a thousand times . So 2-0 at half time .Into the second 45 which became 55 mins and clearly Arundel would try and up their game especially with the wind at their backs but our lads were never going to let the lead slip and actually went 3-0 up via Holland on 62 .Then Arundel got a penalty decision on 68 so 3-1 .The final score was never in doubt indeed only the post and a great save by their keeper stopped a 4-1 scoreline .Sadly some decisions went against us in the final 15 mins .Not saying they were wrong but could not understand how the referee can give a yellow and then after 5 mins with a stoppage due to injury consult his assistants ,one who was 20 yards away and one who was 50 yards away and then give a red .For the same offence ?when he was 10 yards away .Still we will never know as the officials rarely like to be asked about the decisions they make ..great win and 3 points SQUAD Measor ,Skipper ,
