Coach Darren said
“With the weather and frozen pitches, it looked like there was no chance of getting a match this side of Christmas. However, Southwick FC let us use their main team’s pitch. It was in very good condition and had not been played on for two years.
The Dragons played exceptionally well in freezing cold conditions and bitter wind.
Within the first 20 seconds, we were 1-0 up. Southwick eventually came back to level the score. However, we changed subs and kept going to increase the score to 2-1 at halftime.
In the second half, Southwick came at us and scored a good goal just beating our keeper, Jack, with a bounce in front of the goal.
We did not lose focus and kept playing to our strengths. This paid off with another 4 goals and we became even stronger in the latter part of the match.
A fantastic performance from all 14 players who all did their bit to ensure we now go through to the quarter-finals of the Sussex cup.
Extremely well played and thoroughly deserved 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻”
