Eastbourne Town kickstarted their Sussex Senior Cup campaign with a resounding six-nil win over Midhurst and Easebourne to continue their impressive unbeaten run.
The real story here however was not the result but the performance of young Leke Ademola.
Ademola’s introduction in the second-half seemed to bring Eastbourne Town to a whole new level as the youngster looked keen to impress scoring just four minutes after coming on.
The under 18’s ace, who’s caught the eye of Town chairman Tony Guarino, run the Staggs defence rampant as he hit the woodwork twice and had a key role to play in Jack Samways’ and Fletcher Holman’s goals which finished off a poor Midhurst side.
Certainly one to watch for the future.
Dan Rogers opened the scoring on the night bundling in a goalmouth scramble followed by Town’s top scorer Aaron Hopkinson’s phenomenal twenty-yard effort which loomed over the out of position Staggs keeper Josh Bird.
Aaron Capon added to Midhurst woes slotting past Bird to round off a sweeping counter attack by Town, the game looked over before half-time.
Despite the teams just a division apart in Southern Combination Football League, the away sides hopes of an underdog story was never on the cards as Town showcased their Premier pedigree to ease to victory outclassing the Division One leaders with a polished performance from the first whistle to the last.
