After a goalless first half substitute Joel Kalambayi pounced in the area to put Bexhill in front. They extended their lead with the ball falling nicely for Evan Archibald in the box to half volley past Chris Winterton in the Eastbourne Town goal.

It was 2-1 on 82 minutes a mis-hit clearance dropped to Simon Johnson 20 yards out and the Eastbourne Town midfielder struck home a sumptuous volley. But Archibald struck again to make the points safe for the Pirates.

Eastbourne United also lost twice over the bank holiday, going down 3-1 at home to Littlehampton and 2-0 at Little Common.

Tomorrow (Sep 4) Eastbourne Town go to Loxwood while Eastbourne United host Alfold.
