Storrington’s cup final misery

STORRINGTON suffered County League Division 2 Cup final heartbreak last night with a 2-1 defeat to AFC Uckfield.

Ricky Hamilton’s Swans gave a spirited display and belied their position of underdogs, but while they were unable to land the knockout blow despite a string of chances, Uckfield took one of the only openings they created in extra time.

A crestfallen Hamilton said after the game: “Every player out there deserves credit and I am proud of every one of them.

“They have done the club proud tonight.

“I felt we had a goal in us in extra time, we looked like the only ones scoring from open play.”

Tim Martin gave Storrington the lead from the spotm, only for that to be cancelled out by Lawrence Edwards’ penalty minutes later.

Storrington had more chances, but it was AFC Uckfield’s Ben Dartnell who popped up with the winner deep into extra time.
