Andy Tuckey struck after only two minutes as he confidently converted a penalty when the lively Rick Peacock was blatantly brought down.

Kieron Purkis struck the bar midway through the first half but in a tie played at a frenetic pace, it was no surprise when Sidlesham equalised through Dan Bassil after 25 minutes.

The pace continued unabated after the break and it was the quality of Peacock that earned Blues a cup final place against either Hurstpierpoint or Uckfield, who were due to meet last night (Wednesday). Peacock took his chance superbly after 74 minutes.

Heath: Hyde; Feist, Harding, Rabbetts, Lucas; Wanstall (Ardley, 75), Ransom (Hall, 80), Mobsby, Tuckey; Purkis, Peacock.
