First game of the season brought Shoreham up against a very good and well drilled Eastbourne Borough side and the Shoreham boys being together for only just 3 weeks and a side built of players that have played in the lower leagues of Sussex Sunday and Mid Sussex, which is a massive step up to the Bostik League.
During the game Shoreham tried to limit Eastbournes attack as Shoreham were organised and were holding out to Eastbourne untill a silly foul on the edge of the box resulted in a free kick, and was put away giving Eastbourne a 1- 0 lead.
The next 40 mins we were limiting Eastbournes chances to long range shots with Shoreham also getting a couple of half chances and causing trouble from corners.
The last 5 minutes saw Shoreham give away a needless freekick which Shoreham failed to deal with and Eastbourne went 2-0 up with no time left for to make a come back.
All in all a great first game effort and Rob Boxhill (manager) was proud of the teams effort and the way they battled against a side that's been together alot longer.
