Mixed results for Icklesham teams


Icklesham Casuals’ 2nd team recorded their first victory of the season on Saturday with a 3-1 defeat of Hampden Park United at Eastbourne Sports Park to move off the bottom of the table. Icklesham played some very good football on a difficult pitch. Paul Daniels buried two shots from outside the box and Joe Fraser finished off a four-man move late on to secure the points. Joe also hit both posts and numerous other chances were created. Player-manager Adam Murphy came off the bench to help see the side home and the game also saw the d├ębut of young Callum Martin.

The 1st team bowed out of the Wisdens Sports Challenge Cup in the second round, losing 4-1 at home to Wadhurst United. United were two up at the break and added two further goals in the second period with Sean Baker netting a late consolation from the penalty spot for Icklesham.

A weakened veterans side went down 3-0 at home to Little Common in the Hastings Veterans League on Sunday morning bringing to an end their winning start to the season.
