South Saxons returned to winning ways with a 7-0 victory at home to Eastbourne II on Saturday.

Saxons’ best performance of the season so far moved them up to second place in South Hockey League Sussex Area - Division One.

Their captain Paddy Cornish said: “It was a very good performance from everyone really and it was good not to concede, especially playing this new formation with only two at the back.”

Saxons were three-up at half time in the sunshine at Horntye Park Sports Complex and added four more goals during the second period to make it 17 in two home matches. Their man of the match was Alex Coombs.

A full report will appear in Friday’s Hastings Observer.
