FOOTBALL: Clayton sends Wick into another quarter-final

WICK Football Club continued their superb cup form on Saturday when they recorded an excellent 1-0 win at Eastbourne UA, where they had lost 6-0 in the league earlier in the season.

Wick will now host Shoreham in the last eight of the Sussex RUR Cup, but before that they have a home John O'Hara Cup quarter-final replay with Seaford on Tuesday.

Wick's Phil Turner hit the bar in the first half before Wick keeper Alex Bryant made three excellent saves.

Wick got the only goal on 73 minutes when Simon Clayton fired home from the edge of the area after a free kick was only half-cleared.

Wick manager Carl Stabler said: "I was very pleased, we played well, defended well and worked very hard. They are reigning champions and a very good side, so it's a good win."

WICK: Bryant; Torode, N.Murfin, Sharman, Buckland; Turner, Pearce, Clayton, Barnard; Huggett, S.Murfin. Subs: Gaskin (Huggett 70), More, Wrigley.
