The top two teams in Division Four clashed last Saturday, December 7, when second-placed Icklesham Casuals took on AFC Hollington – top of the table and yet to drop a point this season.
It was AFC Hollington who started well showing why they have won every game with wave after wave of attacks and getting their reward with a 2-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Charlie Davies and Anton Neil. The Casuals were limited to a few long range efforts in the first period.
The second half was a much closer affair with both sides creating chances and it was Icklesham who reduced the deficit when Bradlee Mepham whipped in a brilliant and precise free-kick to find Phil Badrock unmarked in the box to head home.
This gave the Casuals the boost they needed and was followed by a rocket of a shot from Mepham which rattled the Hollington crossbar but in the end Icklesham could not find the equaliser and victory went to Hollington 2-1.
Sean Baker was the Helenswood Sports Centre Man of the Match.
This Saturday, December 14, Icklesham are at home to Magham Down with the match kicking-off at 2pm.
