The Sports were victorious in the county's showpiece match.

The American Express Community Stadium hosted its sixth Parafix Sussex Senior Cup Final, as ten-man Eastbourne Borough edged out Worthing with a 1-0 victory on Friday.

A goal from Nathaniel Pinney was enough for the Vanarama National League South side to claim their third triumph in the competition in front of 2,899 spectators.
Despite the Sports claiming the coveted trophy, it was Worthing that made the brighter start and had the best chance of the half, as Ben Pope fired over the target from close range.
Borough keeper Lewis Carey also had to be alert to tip Brannon O’Neill’s set-piece around the post in the first half.


A cagier second 45 minutes followed, but not without controversy, as goalscorer Pinney was shown a second yellow card for an off-the-ball incident late in the game.
The win ended a difficult season on a high note for Borough, who finished 17th in the league and just three points ahead of Havant & Waterlooville in the relegation zone.
For Worthing, the defeat is a blemish in what has otherwise been an outstanding campaign, as the Rebels secured promotion to the Ryman Premier League via the play-offs, culminating in a 3-0 victory over Faversham Town in the final.
