Match 4
Uckfield 1st 8 – Shoreham 6DSC_0461

Off the back of three defeats everyone on the Shoreham team was in high spirits and enthusiastically took to the field for the final match. Shoreham immediately took the initiative and scored a try within seconds of the kick off. Nothing could split the two teams from this point with tries being scored tit for tat. The consistency of excellent tagging & passing from Zacharias helped spur Shoreham on but alas Uckfield just took the lead on the last few plays.
