SUSSEX COUNTY LEAGUE DIVISION THREE REVIEW

Dorking Wanderers maintained their twelve points advantage and their game in hand as they defeated Haywards Heath Town 3-1. Goals by Kevin Burgess after 12 minutes and Chris Williams shortly before the interval left Dorking in control and although Paul Lodge pulled back a goal for Heath after 78 minutes a late strike by Matt Evans ensured a comfortable win. Newhaven hold the runners up spot following their win by the odd goal in five at Rottingdean Village. The home side scored first through Giles Shepherd after just five minutes but Luke Duchossoy equalised after 20 minutes. Jared Leach put the Dockers ahead three minutes after the resumption but Rottingdean thought they had saved a point when Michael Damario struck after 82 minutes. With two minutes left to play Darren Flynn hit the clincher for Newhaven. Bosham stayed in contention although their win at last placed Forest was only by two goals to one. In truth it wasnít that close as Bosham led after a quarter of an hour with a goal by Kieran Hartley. Bradley Miles doubled their lead ten minutes into the second half and Forestís consolation from Kyle Mitchell-Harris came in the final minute. Broadbridge Heath moved up the table thanks to a 3-1 local derby success against TD Shipley. Steve Pochel had given TD the lead after 55 minutes but the home side levelled on 67 minutes and finished at pace as Ben Garman gave them the lead after 80 minutes and before Russell Mortimer hit the third on 86. Ferring secured the dayís biggest win at Uckfield Town where they finished 4-1 to the good. The visitors were never troubled and Alex Staines (25), Joe Charman (46), Steve Gettings (55) and Dale Nally (60) all got on the score sheet before Tom Swancott scored for Uckfield with ten minutes left.

Goals from Tiago Andrade after 35 minutes and Jamie Ashley on 71 saw Pease Pottage Village through to the final of the Mid Sussex Senior Cup at the expense of Hassocks II. Hopes of an all-Division Three final fell at the final hurdle as Ifield Edwards went down 4-1 at the hands of Mid Sussex Championship side Turners Hill. Mark Saunders gave Turners Hill the lead after 13 minutes but they were pegged back by a Les Gomez penalty after half an hour. Five minutes later Matt Burrows restored the visitorsí advantage and they sailed through the second half with goals by Brett Caiger (48 minutes) and Ryan Davidson after 76.

It was success all round in the third round of the Vernon Wentworth Cup. Saltdean United enjoyed an easy win at Bosham II. Bryan OíToole hit a double after 54 and 90 minutes adding to strikes by Lee Pontin (34 minutes) and Ebou Jallow on 63 and the Salts went through with a 4-0 scoreline. Barnham came good in the second half as they progressed 3-1 at Newhaven II. Richard Boxall gave them the lead three minutes after the restart but it was all square four minutes later as Simon Whitney hit back for the Dockers. Sam Enticott restored Barnhamís lead after 69 minutes and in the last five minutes Joss Parsons scored their third goal. Hurstpierpoint also got through to the next round but they did it the hard way against Worthing Leisure. The tie was deadlocked at two all after extra time before Hurst finally edged out the visitors winning the penalty shoot out 4-2. Aaron Walsh notched both goals for Hurst after 50 and 59 minutes.
