Eastbourne Town were given a helping hand to victory in the SCFL Premier Division yesterday (11 March).
Aaron Hopkinson was welcomed back into the squad for the trip to Loxwood and found himself in the starting eleven for the game.
A cry of ‘hand ball against Town’s Byron Napper was waved away by the referee, 15 minutes in. The only goal of the game was to come 11 minutes later – an own goal off of a Loxwood player.
Dave Smart turned to fire one home off of a corner in the 41st, but was flagged offside.
No other opportunities were exploited by either side for the rest of the game and the final score was Loxwood 0 – 1 Eastbourne Town.
