Last night, Mishon Mackay played a friendly football game against our local rivals, Sawyer & Co, who won 2-1. Having played twice before, the series was evenly balanced with both teams winning a match each, so the game was on for both teams keen for a win. The match itself was played in great spirit between two friendly rivals. Mishon Mackay had the better of the first half, scoring 1-0 but Sawyers upped their game after halftime. Mishon Mackay’s only goal was scored by Dan Redman from our Hurstpierpoint branch. Despite all efforts from our goalkeeper, Sawyers came out on top with goals from James Hance and Rodger Heasman, giving them a score of 2-1.
In previous years the match has been held at the Amex but took place at Sussex County FA Headquarters in Lancing this year. Members of the Mishon Mackay team included Chris Pearson, Matthew Pahlavan, Dan Redman, Jay Melton-Ball, Sam Ranger, George Wayne, Damien Dunford, Josh Pennycott and the Team Manager, Steve Neocleous. We were also lucky enough to have guests Tom Middleton, Drew Bailey, Robbie Grice, Matt Neocleous, Paul and Sam Arscott playing for our team.
