Blues clinch MSFL crown

(April 16, 2022)

Sidley United 3 - 1 Lindfield - MSFL Premier Division

Sidley United confirmed the Mid Sussex Premier Division Championship title with a convincing win over Lindfield - one of only two sides to have beaten the Blues in the league this season.

Both teams rather cancelled each other out in the first 25 minutes before Sidley finally had a shot at goal; Charlie Cornford's effort flying just over the bar. However Sidley opened the scoring on 37 minutes when a Cornford corner was parried out by the Lindfield goalkeeper straight to the feet of Toby Clifford who smashed the ball home to give the Blues a narrow half time lead.

Early into the second half, a quadruple change allowed Sidley to assert more control with the game becoming pretty much one way traffic as Sidley pressed Lindfield back, winning a series of corners. From one of them on 62 minutes, the tireless Danny Ellis hooked the ball over his shoulder and into the net. The pressure continued with only some good saves by the Lindfield goalkeeper keeping the score down.

Against the run of play on 80 minutes, Lindfield pulled a goal back as a long cross was scrambled into the back of the Sidley net by Jon Cunningham but 5 minutes later Man of the Match Zac McEniry headed home another Cornford corner to secure the win and the Championship with 2 matches to spare.

Sidley Team: Hutchins, Walker, McEniry, Clifford, Hickman-Smith, Ellis, Carey, McCue, Cornford, S Crabb, Capon. Subs: Elliott-Noye, Featherstone, N Crabb, Cumming-Bart, Rogers.
