HOLLINGTON UNITED'S FINE RECORD.
The record of Hollington United F.C. is very favourable for the season just completed, especially when it is taken into con. sideration that the team has been a comparatively young one.
Players who formed the nucleus of the reserve team last season have been drafted into the first team, and have done very well. The first team played 30 matches, won 22.1 drew two, and lost six, scoring 146 goals with 62 scored against them. They were runners-up to Rock-a-Nore in the East Sussex League, won the Bexhill Charity Cup for the third time, and reached the semifinal of the East Sussex Cup.
The players have again worthily upheld the standard of the club, and Milder, Terrill, and Leppard have had the honour of playing for the county in representative matches. Terrill and Leppard played the requisite number of times to receive the county badges.
The heaviest defeat received by the team Was at the Pilot Field, in the Amateur Cup. when Hastings won 7-0. The biggest victory was at the expense of Rye, who were defeated at Hollington in an East Sussex League match by 20-11.
Even better results are anticipated for next season, now that the present players have welded themselves into a matchwinning combination. The team spirit has been excellent throughout the season. Of the younger players who have proved their worth, Upton. Prior, Chenery, Vidler, Ripley, and Horlock are deserving of special mention. Of the older slayers, Hader has again proved himself a brilliant goalkeeper and worthy to rank with the best in the county. Harris played many splendid games at left bark, and Crouch at centre-half, although seriously injured and absent from the team for 16 woe's, was a captain who used his wide experience in the best interests of the team. Terrill and Hyland made at times a brilliant right wing, and with Leppard and Britt playing at their best, the forward line was always a dangerous proposition to opposing defences. So ends what has been a really good season.
The leading goal soarers are as follows L. Britt 27, C. Terrill 25, J. Leppard 23, T. Hyland 22, J. Ripley 18, W. Vidler 9, A. Harris 5.
