Early strike from Marshall gets Haven on the way

2 weeks ago By Pitchside View

A GOAL AFTER three minutes by Josh Marshall (pictured) got Peacehaven & Telscombe off to the best possible start at Uckfield on Tuesday evening.

After Saturday’s disappointing cup exit, manager Mark Shutt was looking for a response, and a response he got.

Just before Marshall opened the scoring when he lobbed the keeper from 18 yards, defender Marcus Allen had headed in but the referee blew for a foul on Dann in the home goal.

The game began at a frenetic pace but Haven were dominating proceedings. On 13 minutes Marcus Richmond nearly doubled the lead but the keeper saved well and just after, a 40 yard effort from Marshall was pushed over the bar by Uckfield’s Dann.

Just five minutes later, defender Chris Billin got in on the act as he delivered in a great cross which Mikey Lloyd nearly scored with only to see the keeper save the ball after a scramble.

On 24 minutes, Marcus Richmond doubled Haven’s lead with an excellent finish to beat the onrushing Dann.

Three minutes later Uckfield responded with their best chance of the game, but Haven held firm.

Peacehaven were piling on the pressure, but when Uckfield attacked the visitors’ defence was solid.

On 43 minutes Uckfield came close to pulling one back when they hit the post.

The game was extremely competitive with the referee dishing out yellow cards to both sides. But Peacehaven kept attacking and Marshall was denied by the overworked home keeper. And then with just over an hour played, Conor Wilkins made it three after good work by Marshall and Wiltshire.

On 78 minutes the game was over as a contest when Marcus Allen drilled home to make it 4-0.

Peacehaven saw the game out and will be well satisfied with their night’s work.

Next up is the FA Vase on Saturday when Peacehaven travel to CB Hounslow United.

Peacehaven & Telscombe: Aga, Massen, Billin, Grant, Allen, Sidwell, Lloyd, Wilkins, Marshall, Richmond, Wiltshire. Subs: Legrange, Dinnage, Berwick, Avens, Ford.
