Match report by Liam Brooks:
Polegate Town started their Mid Sussex Supplementary Cup competition with a 1-1 drew at home to Ashurst Wood in blustery conditions at Polegate Rec on Saturday (18 March).
Ashurst Wood made good use of the wind advantage in the first half, taking the lead with a strike from 30 yards. Town rallied and equalised with an equally good goal as full back Richard North scored his third of the season with a low drive from the edge of the area.
Despite plenty of possession and chances in the second half, Town couldn't find a way past the stubborn Ashurst defence and a draw was a fair result.
MoM: Marcus Whiteman.
Town's 2nd team didn't have a game this weekend, but both teams are in action this weekend with the 1st team at home to Barcombe in the league and the 2nd team away to Peacehaven & Telscombe 3rds in the Supplementary Cup.
