Jay Lovett and his merry men will be looking to really to flip the tables on the start they had to the season. They didn’t win a match in the first 6 games but avoid defeat at Jubilee Field tomorrow and they will end the season 6 unbeaten and in 7th place.
The Hillians are coming off the back of an emotional Easter Monday match with Chichester City where the game ended up finishing 2-2 with goals from Max Miller and Lewis Finney’s 11th of the season but the main story was Super Pat Harding announcing he is leaving the club after tomorrow’s match after 11 years donning the Green and Black. If selected tomorrow, Pat will make his 464th Burgess Hill appearance scoring an incredible 131 (!) goals for the club. Pat and the rest of the Hillians will be determined to cling onto 7th place, something which they will do if they avoid defeat against the Bridges. Our previous meeting with Jamie Crellin’s outfit saw a uneventful 0-0 at the More Than Tyres Stadium.
The Bridges aren’t traditionally one of the ‘big boys’ in the league but they have had a very impressive year showing they are a match to anyone on their day. They currently sit 14th with 44 points from 37 games but they have largely spent the season higher than that. They could rise to 12th with a win and depending on other results.
You Hillians always travel well so we have no doubt you will turn up in huge numbers tomorrow. Your support this season has been exceptional. Thank you, from us, to you.
