JC Tackleway 3 Battle Town II 0
Tackleway welcomed Battle seconds to the fortress in the ESFL tournament and an excellent defensive performance by Tackleway ensured that Battle didn’t get a look-in.

Westfield 7 Sedlescombe 0
Westfield entertained local rivals Sedlescombe Rangers at The Parish Field in what turned out to be a one-sided affair, with the home side running out comfortable 7-0 winners.
First half goals from centre back Joey Dicken, George King and a Dan Tewksbury penalty saw the westies enter the break with a commanding 3-0 lead having rarely been threatened at the other end.
It was more of the same during the second half with further goals from Tewksbury who finished with a brace and King who went on to complete his hat-trick scored either side of a goal from club chairman Jack Stapley, who registered with his first touch.
Had it not been for some profligate finishing the margin of victory could and perhaps should have been greater.
MoM was Jacob Shelton who covered every blade of grass in midfield and youngster Brad Kipps belied his tender years impressing with a mature display at the back alongside the reliable Dicken.
