September Monthly Round-up

A busy month for all the sides this month with five fixtures for each team, with a ‘variety’ of results.

The firsts went unbeaten, perching themselves at the top of division one and progressing through to the next round of the Edgar German Cup (the trophy we hold from last season 🏆)

A nail biting 5-4 win against Balcombe 2nds was sandwiched between a pair of 4-2 wins and a pair of 1-0 wins; Blaxall and Bartram scoring three each across the games to earn them the top scorers award for the first team.

The reserves started the month with two clean sheets and six points, including a dramatic win over Willingdon on Hurstpierpoint FC’s famous ‘Super Saturday’ – Joe Butterfill and Harry Blunnie came off the bench to connect and score the only goal in that one.

The second half of the month saw them struggle a bit more, exiting both cups with heavy defeats and losing to Ditchling on their ‘Super Saturday’.

The under 19’s had a similar month to the reserves winning two (one friendly) and losing three (one cup). Despite this, Doug and Olly’s side sit top of the table having played one more game than most.

Special mention to club prodigy Robbie Payne who played on Saturday (for the fronts) and Sunday (for the under 19’s) on multiple occasions during September…which probably explains why he finished the month top scorer with four goals ⚽️

⭐️Player of the month: Jamie Butterfill

No, that’s not a typo. Jamie Butterfill, our new reserve team assistant manager, was nominated as player (person) of the month. Jamie joined the club along with his son Joe at the start of the season and his leadership and commitment has not gone unrecognised at the club and so for that, we thank you Jamie! He has organised the team well alongside and in the absence of Pops, and kept the moral high in what has been a challenging month for the reserves. Jamie has earned a free drink at the bar as prize 🍺
