Hailsham Town bounced back from the disappointment of their 2-0 defeat at home to East Grinstead Town on Saturday to beat local rivals AFC Uckfield 2-1 this morning.

The Stringers were all square with the Wasps on Saturday – until three minutes from time, when goals from Jonathan Hampson (87 minutes) and Ben Chick (89 minutes) undid them.

But on East Monday morning they travelled to nearby AFC where they prevailed thanks to goals from Danny Leach (17 minutes) and Mesach Smith (75 minutes).

AFC Uckfield had lost heavily, 3-0 away to Sidley United, on Saturday.

The hosts’ goals came from Kenny Pogue on 23 minutes, an own goal on 44 minutes, and Ricky Martin on 77 minutes.
