Eastbourne Town travel to Peacehaven this afternoon, a tough test awaits just fifteen miles along the coast in an early top-five clash!
Both sides have been in good form of late with just one defeat in five. However, Town suffered defeat just last Saturday with an upset at the hands of Shoreham, losing 3-1 after taking the lead inside two minutes. Our opponents today currently sit in second place in the league and have secured three wins on the bounce. It is still early days but a top-five clash between two of the best-supported clubs in the league is sure to throw up plenty of drama.
It’s also set to be a match with familiar faces on both sides, could either of these technicians be the differencemaker? Max Hollobone returns to his former employers where he notched 16 goals last season and scored the winning goal to lift the cup. On the opposite side, Town will reacquaint themselves with talented midfielder, James Waters, who bagged nine goals last season and plenty of those finishes left Town supporters with their mouths wide open.
But that’s not all. Town will also be seeing a very familiar face in the black and white of Peacehaven. Aaron Capon signed for our opponents in the summer from local rivals Eastbourne United. Capon, who was and is still very much a fan favourite at The Saffrons scored 79 goals and made a massive 230 appearances over six years.
A minute’s silence will take place before kick-off in remembrance of Eastbourne Town committee member, Wayne Field, who passed away this week after a long illness. Wayne touched the lives of so many with his wisdom, kindness, and resilience. He was held in high regard right across the club and Eastbourne after his many years coaching in our youth section, helping to develop many players, including Max Hollobone, into not only talented footballers but exceptional human beings.
Our thanks to the Peacehaven & Telscombe FC committee for arranging this immediately after the announcement of his passing.
