Eastbourne Borough boss Tommy Widdrington praised his young side after watching them beat Basingstoke 1-0 at Priory Lane.
Darren Lok’s 84th minute winner halted a four game losing streak.
Widdrington said, “The result was the most important thing and the perfromance was the icing on the cake.
“Other than Gary Hart I didn’t have a player over 23 in that dressing but they showed character beyond their age today.”
Widdrington also confirmed that goalkeeper Danny Potter has left the club. Potter lives in Ipswich and just qualified as a taxi driver and decided football was no longer for him.
