League campaign starts with defeat for AFC Uckfield Town

Three Bridges FC play at Jubilee Field in the Southern Combination League

AFC Uckfield Town suffered a narrow defeat at Three Bridges on the opening day of the Southern Combination Football League.

After a strong start at Jubilee Gardens, Uckfield found themselves behind after 21 minutes. It got worse, when they were reduced to 10 men with Matt Black shown a straight red card.

Three Bridges doubled their lead almost immediately after the restart and despite an 84th minute penalty causing some nervy scenes around the home penalty area, Uckfield couldn’t find an equaliser and the match ended 2-1 to the hosts.
