A great effort from the first team today, who at 2-1 up, hit the bar. Goals from Gray and Smith sandwiched a Cuckfield goal with the visitors grabbing an equaliser just before the break.

The league holders took the lead just after the home side missed a guilt edged opportunity early in the second half, and despite throwing everything at Cuckfield, Eastbourne couldn’t find a third goal to take a share of the spoils.

With six 18 year olds in the starting XI, there could be so much more to come from the team this season.
