With resources stretched to the limit, the 1st X1 welcomed back its student contingent and clinched a morale boosting win to end the year..
An unfortunate decision and a determined defence prevented any change of fortunes for the 1st X1......................................................
Almost monsoon conditions dampened our hopes of progressing again to the latter stages of the Montgomery Cup……………
The spoils were shared at Rotherfield as a much changed 1st X1 enjoyed a playing surface and facilities we seem to be only able to dream of.
We have been blessed with some decent playing conditions this season but that came to a wet and muddy end against Lindfield FC.
With Rob writing his thesis, and Paul taking a break from match reports, todays responsibility falls to skipper, Sean Trend.
The largest crowd of the season inspired the 1st X1 to a deserved point after a very early setback.
A slow start and soft goals gave Slade a mountain to climb and gifted the points despite a battling comeback deserving a better return.
The Slade welcomed AFC Ringmer to the Theatre of Wet Dreams, as they looked to put last seasons cup final defeat behind them.
Two goals in the opening 20 minutes were enough for table toppers Balcombe to claim all three points against the league’s bottom club, Slade.
With 5 games played & not a single win recorded, The Slade were hoping a switch to cup football might be the spring board for a better run of results.
A nightmare 6pm kick off was in store as a sorry Slade hosted current Premier League Champions to the Theatre of Wet dreams in a south coast derby.
The first home game at the Theatre of Wet Dreams played host to fellow Championship promotion side Forest Row.
Portslade travelled to the home of Montgomery Cup final Opponents Smallfield for their 2nd game in 3 days.
Slades’ second league fixture saw the long trip to familiar rivals and fellow championship promotion winners Buxted FC.
The opening weekend of the 2015/2016 season saw promoted Championship winners visit a much revamped Jarvis Brook on a sweltering Saturday afternoon.
