The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - CHELMS­FORD CITY 5 EASTBOURNE BORO’ 2 By Matt Lee STAR MAN: Anthony Church (Chelms­ford) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★

EASTBOURNE col­lapsed from a 2-0 half-time lead as they con­ceded five sec­ond­half goals to pro­mo­tion-chas­ing City.

The Clarets fell be­hind against the run of play as Jamie Tay­lor con­verted a cross.

Mo­ments be­fore Craig Bra­ham-Bar­rett had been con­tro­ver­sially de­nied a penalty that ap­peared a clear de­ci­sion to ev­ery­one else in the Mel­bourne Com­mu­nity Sta­dium, with Bra­ham-Bar­rett be­ing booked for sim­u­la­tion in­stead.

Lloyd Dawes then raced through and rounded Sam Beas­ant to score.

Rod Stringer clearly spoke words of en­cour­age­ment at half-time though as Anthony Church scored twice in two min­utes to draw level. His first came as he re­acted quickly to vol­ley Michael West’s cross home. Less than a minute later Church re­stored par­ity as he rose high­est to di­rect Bra­ham-Bar­rett’s cross over the line.

The Clarets had to wait un­til nine min­utes from time to take the lead – with Michael Spil­lane head­ing home a Daniel Green cor­ner.

Three min­utes later and City ex­tended their lead to two goals as sub Kudus Oyenuga tapped home Green’s cross.

Chris Dick­son com­pleted a rout by neatly plac­ing the ball be­yond the keeper.
