Polegate Town are out of the Eastbourne FA Challenge Cup.
Facing a strong Eastbourne Town U21 side, Polegate fell behind within 10 minutes, but soon pulled back, thanks to the efforts of brothers Alex Frost and George Whitley, which allowed Frost to put one past Eastbourne’s goalkeeper.
Polegate saw chances to edge the lead, but were unable to find the back of the net and Eastbourne scored twice in quick succession at The Saffrons, to see the first half end Eastbourne Town U21 3 – 1 Polegate Town.
Liam Brooks pulled one back for Polegate with five minutes left on the clock, but their hosts widened the gap again in injury time.
The final score Eastbourne Town U21 4 – 2 Polegate Town.
