Not the start to the New Year that Eastbourne United wanted this afternoon (2 January).
Travelling to Newhaven in the SCFL Premier Division, United found themselves 1-0 20 minutes in at The Trafalgar Ground. Liam Baitup pulled United level 9 minutes later.
At the break, Eastbourne trailed 2-1 and were unable to pull back in the second half, eventually going down 4-1 to Newhaven.
United will be looking to improve on their performance on Saturday (7 January) when they host Lancing at The Oval.
