Sussex Cup semi-final agony for hockey men

Eastbourne Men’s hockey players missed out on a Sussex Cup final appearance when they lost 1-0 to Lewes in the semi-final on Saturday.

Oli Baxter scored the only goal of the match when he latched on to a pass from Matt Hickman.

Lewes will play Chichester in the final on Sunday, April 29 at Lewes as they beat Brighton and Hove 3-2 in their semi-final.

Meanwhile, Eastbourne still await to hear if they will compete in Premier Division One next season. They await the result of a three-way relegation play-off in the division above them.
