Chopbacks seal first three points of the season

Sidley United II 1

South Coast Athletico 5

After the disappointing defeat last weekend South Coast Athletico had the chance to make up for it when they played away from home with an East Sussex Football League Division 1 clash with newcomers Sidley United.

The Chopbacks started terribly and as a result of a defensive mix up they conceded a sloppy goal within the first 30 seconds of the game.

Despite that poor start the Chopbacks managed to go in at half time 3-1 up with goals from  Tyler Smith, Dave Burch and Brad Owens.

The second half saw Burch having to leave the field early with a potential elbow injury.

With a goals from Smith – that could also be a contender for goal of the season – and Jay Easton opening his club account the Chopbacks got their first win of the campaign leaving the field 5-1 victors.

With what is looking like a free match weekend coming up the South Coast will look to put in some extra preparation for their next league match against Sedlescombe Rangers II.
