Shaun Charles bagged the only goal as Littlehampton Football Club secured an impressive 1-0 win at Newhaven on Tuesday.

Charles struck eight minutes after the break to give Golds their first win in four Southern Combination League Premier Division matches.

Littlehampton player-boss George Gaskin felt his team were exceptional and said: “They are a top side so for us to go there, keep a clean sheet and win was great.

“It just shows what this team is capable of. I can’t praise the team enough, if I’m honest, and it’s the response I wanted after Saturday’s defeat.

“We’ve come alongway since those poor results earlier in the season and we are now beating some of those sides we lost to in those first few months.”

LITTLEHAMPTON: Hendrick; Barnett, McKay, D.Hand; Wiggans, Janman, M.Hand, Charles, Packer; Hutchings; Gaskin. Subs: Ball (Charles), Bates (D.Hand), Leggatt (Hutchings).
