Hailsham Town produced one of the shocks of the season on Wednesday night as they beat top of the table Peacehaven & Telscombe FC, 1-0 away from home.
The win means Town have now beaten the top three teams in the league and was only Peacehaven’s second loss of the season.
Manager Kenny McCreadie believes that the reason for the upsets goes down to the opposition managers not giving enough attention to the lower teams, “The managers at the top just don’t do their research on the teams lower than them, they didn’t know anything about the boys and how we play.”
The only goal of the game came on the 17th minute from Trevor McCreadie, who was playing his last game for the club before moving back to Horsham FC.
The goal was well worked, with Simon Stevens cross finding McCreadie who drilled a volley into the corner and gave goalkeeper Joe Adams no chance.
Town, were well worth the win producing an excellent team performance as they were able to nullify the Peacehaven & Telscombe attack, and was able to use the diamond formation to congest the midfield which the home team struggled to cope with.
The Stringers’ who haven’t lost a home game in seven, now have a busy March to look forward to with six home games on the cards.
