Storrington boss Nigel Dyer says he has been hugely encouraged by his side’s last two performances.

Having beaten Bexhill 3-0 on Saturday, they only narrowly went down to Division One side Newhaven on Tuesday night to go out of the John O’Hara League Cup.

Lee Robinson’s 17th minute goal was enough for Newhaven, though Dyer said: “It was a good game to watch, both teams played good football and it could have gone either way.

“There was an even number of chances for either side, the difference was they took theirs, but we were probably the better side in the second half.”

Swans have slid down the Division Two table with some mixed recent results but Dyer said: “We lost heavily at Little Common with a scratch side, it was just a bad day at the office really. But we’ve played really well our last two games which is encouraging, our response has been great.”
