Dan Lawrence fell to his first competitive defeat as Clymping Football Club boss last night.

Two strikes in the opening 30 minutes from Callum Dowdell helped Sidlesham into a 2-0 half-time lead, before John Phillips, Thomas Jefkins and Thomas Bayley netted as Sids secured a comprehensive 5-0 success.

Clymping boss Lawrence was frustrated following the loss and said: “We had players turning up just ten minutes before kick-off.

“It was a real struggle getting to the game and that overlaid into the game.

“It was a tough game for us but we’ll look to bounce back.”

CLYMPING: Winter; Brett, Potts, E.Fuller, Precious; Maizi, Adsfield, Forza, Bird; Foxon, Lowdell. Subs: Chwar (Bird), Jarvis (Maizi), J.Fuller (E.Fuller).
