Barrington's boots help boost Greens

The first team were indebted to Marcel Barrington this afternoon as he had a key contribution to both goals in the 2-0 win over Metropolitan Police - a result that moved the Greens out of the bottom four on goals scored.

The goals came in the last few minutes, the first saw Barrington make an excellent run to the byline where he played the ball into the box whereupon it was diverted into the net by Steve Sutherland for an own goal.

The second came two minutes before the regular 90 minutes were up when he was the first player to react after Branon Daly was only able to parry Reis Stanislaus's fierce drive.

It secured a deserved win for the Greens who had put in another professional hardworking performance, but, until the intervention of Barrington as a substitute, had been unable to fashion a goal despite having the majority of possession, particularly in the second half.

Results elsewhere mean that the survival bid is now in our own hands, having moved out of the bottom four by virtue of scoring nine more goals than Burgess Hill Town this season.

Next up is the short trip to Harrow Borough on Monday afternoon - we hope to see as many of you as possible there.
