Sevenoaks put the hammer down in West Sussex

Isthmian League South East Division: Burgess Hill Town 1 Sevenoaks Town 3

Three goals in the space of 11 minutes secured Sevenoaks Town’s fifth Pitching In Isthmian League South East away win of the season and keep them in play-off contention.

They trailed at half-time against the manager less West Sussex outfit, before Karn Miller-Neave sparked the late comeback.

The Oaks left back’s day started badly with a first minute booking, but got better, heading them level 16 minutes from time, his first goal of the season, then winning a penalty eight minutes later, converted by Kieron Cadogan before substitute David Kawa added the third with a fine run and finish.

Oaks were second best in the first half – the home side missing several chances before right back Reggie Ward fired them in front just before the half hour.

Solomon Baugh had Oaks’ best chance, seeing his effort cleared off the line.

Hudson changed things quickly soon  after the restart – all three substitutes, Will Hoare, David Kawa and Manny Mensah introduced within 16 minutes.

Baugh and Cadogan went close, before the latter’s trickery, beating the same player three times, before setting up Miller-Neave to head Oaks level.

He then tumbled in the box under home defender Harry Pollard’s challenge in the box – earning the home defender a second yellow card.

Cadogan converted his sixth goal in as many games from the spot  – adding his second assist – putting Kawa away, racing from just inside the halfway line, beating two defenders to score the third.

Sevenoaks Town: Tyler McCarthy, Lexus Beeden, Karn Miller-Neave, Bentley Graham ( Will Hoare 50 mins), Rian Bray (Emmanuel Mensah 61 mins), Antone Douglas, Harvey Walker, Jordy Ndozid, Kieron Cadogan, Solomon Baugh, Josh Ogunseye (David Kawa 53 mins).

Burgess Hill appointed Matt Longhurst as their new manager on Monday.
