Eastbourne Borough’s 2014/15 FA Cup journey ended at Dover on Tuesday when they were beaten 1-0 by their Football Conference hosts.
Borough aquitted themselves well in the final qualifying round replay but went down to a 37th minute goal from Nick Deverdics.
Lewis Carey kept the visitors in the game with a couple of excellent saves and they went on to press hard for spells during the second half.
But the equaliser wouldn’t come and it was Dover who earned the right to host Football League Division Two outfit Morecambe in the First Round Proper.
It’s back to the Vanarama South this Saturday when Tommy Widdrington’s men play host to Bromley at Priory Lane.
