Haywards Heath Town recorded their twenty ninth league win in a row after beating Sidlesham 3-0 at Hanbury.

The Blues played their last league home game of the season on a cold Tuesday night at Hanbury.

Heath took the lead 17 minutes into the game when a Bailie Rogers ball was ran onto by Max Miller, with the forward finishing into the bottom left hand corner.

The champions continued to dominate for much of the first half as chances were missed by Josh Bryant, Max Miller and Tom Graves.

The away side fought vigorously throughout the game and could have scored early in the second half was it not for Heath goalkeeper Simon Lehkyi.

With 78 minutes played a penalty was awarded to the blues after Callum Saunders was brought down in the box.

It was a moment to remember for left back Bailie Rogers as he made no mistake from the spot and scored his first goal of the season.

With two minutes of normal time remaining Heath grabbed their third. Max Miller put in an inviting cross from the right hand side which found Rob O’Toole at the back post who headed past the Sidlesham goalkeeper.
