Hailsham’s other win came from the Millers who played Lewes away. F. Cable and S. Cable scored two each to win 4-0.

Both 2nd teams faced Brighton sides and both lost by just a single goal. The men’s 2s lost 1-0 to current league leaders Brighton 5s in what was reportedly their toughest test yet, a great indicator of where the men’s 2s are at this season.

The ladies 2s also lost to a Brighton side. This was also another tough contest and Hailsham managed to put two on the board with goals from C. Hoad and K. Agnew. Unfortunately Brighton scored three to take all the points from this encounter.

The ladies 1st team had an optimistic start scoring first against the run of play with S.Cable taking a superb well struck goal. Havant came back stronger and managed to score six with the game ending 6-1. Despite the scoreline Hailsham had some positive passages of play and continued to work hard until the final whistle.

Hailsham’s ladies 2s faced the long journey to Chichester on Saturday. The game saw just a single goal with Hailsham taking the win. As shown the ball was passed across the D by C.Duff and confidently put away by L.Meacher. The 1-0 win sees Hailsham leapfrog Chichester to 5th in Sussex Div 2.

The men’s 2nd team had a morning start away to Worthing 4s. The team came away with a 2-2 draw with C.Cable scoring both of Hailsham’s goals. Both were the result of penalty corners with assists coming from S. Baldwin for both.

Starting at home were the ladies 1s who were taking on bottom of the league Tulse Hill & Dulwich. Hailsham had some early chances but failed to capitalise. Tulse Hill & Dulwich managed to find the Hailsham goal twice before the end of the first half before the rain caused the pitch to become difficult and slow. Both keepers were kept busy with both teams having opportunities to score more. The game ended 2-0 to the travelling team.

With the weather conditions worsening and the rain setting in for the afternoon the men’s and Millers matches had to be abandoned due to the level of surface water.
