Rye United ended their home programme with a 1-0 win at home to Chichester City on Saturday.

Scott Ramsay scored the only goal of a forgettable Sussex County Football League Division One fixture with a glancing header from a 69th minute cross by Danny Ellis.

In another uneventful Division One game, Sidley United picked up a creditable 0-0 draw away to Redhill. Kevin Bird missed a good chance early on and both sides struck the crossbar during the second half.

Scott McDonald scored a hat-trick to make it 21 for the season as Bexhill United thrashed Clymping 5-0 at The Polegrove in Division Two. Chris Gould and manager Gerard Moyse completed the scoring.

Little Common suffered a heartbreaking 3-2 loss away to leaders Lancing after clawing their way back from two-down to equalise with 10 men only to concede a late winner. Casey Ham and Lewis Hole were on target.

Westfield suffered a fourth consecutive defeat after being hammered 6-1 at home to promoted Worthing United despite David Pugh netting his 31st goal of the campaign.

Full reports on each of these games will appear in Friday’s Observers.

Sidley United clinched the Reserve Section (East) title, meanwhile, courtesy of a 2-0 victory away to neighbours Little Common. Matt Dadswell and Asher Grindle grabbed the goals.
