Sidley United were members of the Sussex County League up until 2013, when they lost their ground in Glovers Lane. I had visited them as part of an unusual ‘Tuesday treble’, back on 30th March 1999……
14.00 Crystal Palace 2 Charlton Athletic 1 (F.A. Premier Academy League U19)
17.45 Bexhill Town 0 Westfield 8 (Sussex County League Div.3)
19.45 Sidley United 1 Crawley Down Village 1 (Sussex County League Div.2)
They now play in the village of Hooe, on the ground previously used by Hooe Sports, former East Sussex League members.
Sidley are eighth in the East Sussex League, Premier Division. The visitors are top of the West Sussex League, Premier Division, having won all nine of their league fixtures this season, so this one went pretty much to form. At 0-2, Sidley had a great chance to pull a goal back, but having failed to convert the chance at the far post, the ball was cleared and the visitors broke away to make it 0-3 and it was game over. The hosts did have the majority of possession in the second half, but only because Angmering had taken their foot off the gas.
