National League South Sat 3 December SO Legal Community Stadium
Eastbourne Boro

Shiloh Remy proved the hero with 2 goals, a MOM award, but also a late injury sub to cap of an eventful “afternoon” for the Sports winger.

The day didn’t start well for Birthday Boy Lee Worgan as an early free-kick was fumbled and Alex Bray for the visiting Chippenham Town bundled home to give his side a 6th minute lead.

Would this park The Sports into a response ? Sort of. The game became scrappy – the unusual start time and cold weather maybe affecting minds and bodies. Too many passes went astray, too many tackles mistimed – but Boro gradually began to take the game to the visitors. Jake Hutchinson was just short of an over hit through ball.

Remy showed his intent with a curling low effort across goal that struck the left post before Leone Gravata tried his luck – just wide from the opposite wing.

With both benches considering their half time speeches Remy struck a half cleared ball through a crowd of players – and the keeper – to equalise on 42 minutes.

Whatever was said behind the closed doors didn’t seem to make much difference as the game resumed in a similar disjointed fashion.

Gravata again tried his luck – but Worgan redeemed himself with a great close range save as Town pushed to regain the lead.

The in form Jake Hutchinson looked to have grabbed a Boro win – but his close range finish from a right wing low delivery was ruled offside.

Worgan again kept his side alive with a second fabulous 1 on 1 save before Remy was upended in the box as he looked to strike. He dusted himself down before striking the ball home from the spot with 4 minutes to go.

Late drama saw him involved injured as he put his body on the line to keep Chippenham out – but his team mates saw out the closing minutes for a vital win.

The demolishment of Slough contained sublime pass and move football – todays result was more grit and graft and winning when not at your best. Both performances only gain you 3 points as the great run of results continues into December.
