Goals galore in Icklesham defeat


There were goals galore when Icklesham Casuals 2nd team played away to Robertsbridge United II last Saturday. In a match played on a treacherous pitch a tight first half saw the side trailing 2-0 at the break. Icklesham adopted a more attacking game in the second half and although they conceded a further five goals did reply with four of their own, with a flurry of goals coming in the opening 20 minutes. The scorers were Dan Russell, Jon Fitton, Joe Lyons and debutant James Coram, who netted with his first touch of the ball. Final score: 7-4 to Robertsbridge. The first team game at home to Hollington United II was called off due to a waterlogged pitch; they travel on Saturday to Buxton Drive, Sidley, to take on Bexhill AAC. The 2nd XI are at home to Battle Baptists III.
