Chopbacks bow out in fractious encounter

South Coast Athletico 1
Wadhurst United 2

It was cup weekend and the Chopbacks were back at home for their first Premier Travel Cup match against ESFL Premier Division side Wadhurst United.

Yet again Athletico was missing a couple of key players so squad rotation was again required for this tough test against higher opposition.

After a Brad Owens goal just one minute in the Chopbacks managed to go in at half-time 1-0 up knowing they should have had a bigger lead had they taken their chances.

The second half resulted in Wadhurst getting two goals first from a corner and the second from a penalty as a result of a handball.

Try as they might the Chopbacks were unable to find an equaliser and so bow out of the cup 2-1.

Poor discipline from both sides resulted in quite a few yellow cards being shown and two red cards shown to Wadhurst.

Man of the Match: Charley Adams
