Brighton Blues for Stortford
Blues completed a miserable Festive Season as they went down 1-0 at big-spending Whitehawk on Sunday.
The home side saw John-Paul Kissock sent-off in the 25th minute, but the only goal of the game came when Ashley Miller brought down Sam Deering in the area in the 67th minute. Deering stepped up to send new Blues keeper Dillon Phillips the wrong way with a well struck spot kick.
Blues poured forward in the final minutes with Phillips joining the attack but despite substitute Sergio Torres also seeing red for a very late tackle just before the final whistle the hosts held on to take the three points,
