Max Hollobone receives Supporters' Player of the Year award
after the Pagham match

The last game of the season at home at the Saffrons saw Town shake off the poor performances of the last few games to demolish Pagham four nil. Town where ahead after four minutes through Danny Ellis. Ten minutes later they were two up through Layton Schaaf. Just before the end of the first half one of the assistant referees was injured and this led to a fifteen minutes break before the game restarted and the first half ended two nil to Eastbourne. It was only a minute into the second half when Town scored again when Kenny Pogue slipped the offside trap and clean through chipped the Pagham goalkeeper beautifully. Town were dominant now and with another break into the Pagham box their keeper gave away a penalty and was sent off. However the penalty was missed by Pogue, with a great double save by the Pagham replacement keeper, but the ball then fell to Dominic Clarke who belted the ball goalwards and a deflection took it into the net. A deserved victory for Eastbourne which guarantees them fourth place in the league.

Max Hollobone fights off United approaches

A battling local derby at the Oval on Easter Monday saw both teams unable to break the deadlock despite good chances for both sides. The game got under way with a few fierce tackles and a couple of yellow cards. Once the game settled down United appeared the keenest to keep the ball on the deck and play some football and they shaded the first half, although they failed to make any real clean cut chances apart form one right at the end of the half. A neat through ball saw United's Peter Cooper clean through but Town's keeper Broadbent was out quickly enough to smother the chance. The start of the second period seemed to follow the same pattern until about fifteen minutes into the half Town started applying themselves in midfield and saw a lot more of the ball. A series of good opportunities then fell to Town but none were taken - including one deflected shot that looked like it was going to loop over the United keeper but with a great backward dive he flicked the ball over from just under the bar. Another saw Town's George Robinson clean through but his control wasn't perfect and this allowed United's keeper to close him down before he could slot it home. At this point it looked only a matter of time before Town scored but the final pass and shot never came together. In fact the best chance toward the end came from a United break and only a fantastic full stretch reaction save by the Broadbent kept the scores even. In the end it would be fair to say United shaded the first half but Town dominated the second half and were unlucky not to grab the points. Despite no goals an exciting match with both teams struggling to keep control on a bobbly and uneven pitch - a shame as older local football fans will remember when the Oval pitch had a great surface that was a joy to play on.
