Previous instalment: Basketball Womens’ 1st Team.
On a cold, overcast afternoon up at Falmer Sports Complex on the 8th of February: a spirited display from the Sussex Men’s Football team saw them clinch a hard-fought 2-2 draw with Essex. A dramatic and beautifully executed lob from the edge of the box was enough to secure Sussex a crucial point in a fiercely competitive league where a clear favourite is yet to emerge.
After the game we caught up with Josh, Sussex captain for his thoughts on the game, Sussex’s league standings and Sussex’s chances for the Varsity Mens’ Football fixture.
Q: Alright result in the end, a two-all draw: how did you feel the game went?
A: I thought it was tight, I felt we created enough chances to win the game but unfortunately we couldn't take them. Ideally we wanted a win but a point is better than nothing and the boys played well.
Q: Where does that leave you in the league?
A: I think the league’s pretty tight. Before this game we were bottom, but three points from the top. So obviously depending on other results we’ll have to have a look and see where we are. But the two last games are massive, we’ll need a win in both probably to be up there or at least compete to stay in the league. We believe we’re in a position where we can stay in the league definitely.
Q: We’re looking ahead to Varsity at the moment, what do you believe your chances are in that game (against Brighton University)?
A: We fancy ourselves, we’ve got a great squad of lads out there who can really play football, so I think we’ve got a good chance of getting the win this year.
Varsity kicks off on March 19th, with multiple sports fixtures played across campus as Sussex fight to win for a potential 4th successive year. You can follow all the action as the games take place using the hashtag #teamsussex on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Come on Sussex!
