Have your say

The Hawks crashed to their second consecutive Blue Square South defeat – losing 2-1 at Eastbourne Borough this afternoon.

Steve Brinkhurst was the home side’s hero at Priory Lane, scoring both of his side’s goals in the second-half.

Sammy Igoe’s penalty, in between those two strikes, was Shaun Gale’s side’s only reward from their trip along the south coast.

The Hawks pushed hard for a point late on but could find no way through Borough’s staunch defence.
