Eastbourne Ladies began 2015 with a double dose of success.

The ladies played with skill and efficiency in both the Saturday league and Sunday Cup game against the local rivals stripping them of their title and throwing them out of the cup.

Kat Turner was fantastic in goal but Lewes were 1-0 up at the break. Minty Murray levelled for Eastbourne and then did it again to give her side the lead. Better passing saw Lewes tire and Eastbourne were unlucky not to extend their lead.

Petch Lenham and defenders Claire Noble, Hannah Collins, Julie King and Rosie Sharp were superb.

On Sunday Eastbourne dominated from the off as Sharon Clay and Nat Boyd made it 2-0. Another goal from Sharon and a solo effort from Steph Black secured a 4-0 triumph and a passage to the sem-final
