The 2nd team of Icklesham Casuals produced their best performance of the season to record an excellent 7-3 victory over Robertsbridge United II last Saturday (November 22). Icklesham were awarded an early penalty when Kafka Skubay was brought down by the Robertsbridge goalkeeper. Having missed their two previous penalties, it was Paul Fagan who stepped up to slot the ball home and register his first goal for the club. Icklesham soon added two further goals before Robertsbridge pulled one back to make the score 3-1 at half-time.

The Icklesham side, which included five 16 and 17 year-olds, netted two early goals after the interval and went on to complete a comfortable win playing some impressive football. Dan Russell with two, Mason Maddox, Kafka Skubay, Joe Fraser and substitute Phil Badrock were the other scorers.

The 1st team match at Ticehurst was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
