Under 21s lose unbeaten record

1 week ago By Pitchside View

PEACEHAVEN & TELSCOMBE under 21s went down 2-0 at home on Monday evening and lost their one hundred percent record.

The first half began brightly with Peacehaven taking the game to their opponents. But even though Haven dominated possession they didn't manage a shot on target during the opening period.

Meanwhile Rottingdean looked dangerous on the break and Haven's defence needed to be at its best to keep them at bay.

In the second half Rottingdean came more into this entertaining game and the balance of play was about equal.

Peacehaven continued to play good, neat passing football but couldn't get past a well organised and disciplined Rottingdean side and continued to struggle to make an impression in the final third.

For the home side Shaun Tait (pictured) excelled and came closest to scoring with a dangerous free kick and in defence 18-year old Harry Mills looked assured and calm and is an excellent prospect. For both of these players, for the time being at least, this was their last game for the club before they head to university.

For Rottingean both goals were scored by the impressive Tom Boyle in the 74th and 81st minutes.

The visitors deserved their win and manager Clive Blunt, who was not able to be at the last night's game will have some work to do to get his young charges back on course ahead of their next game away to Little Common on Thursday Sepember 21.

Attendance: 70.
