Rocks off to a Ryman premier flyer

The Rocks enjoyed their first taste of life in the Ryman premier following promotion as they won 3-1 at Concord Rangers.

Ashley Robinson and debut-making Mu Mann gave the visitors a 2-1 half-time lead in Essex and James Crane made sure of the points with the third midway through the second half.

In the Sussex League, Pagham’s good start in division one was brought to a halt as a late goal earned Sidley a 3-2 win at Nyetimber Lane. But Selsey enjoyed their first win - a 2-0 success at Hassocks.

Chichester City lost 3-2 at home to Hailsham.

In division two Midhurst made it two draws from a draw - they ended 2-2 at Little Common.

In division three, Sidlesham celebrated their first game following promotion from the West Sussex League with a 3-0 ome triumph over Hurstpierpoint. Barnham drew 1-1 with Ifield.

We’ll have a full Concord v Rocks report here later in the weekend - and don’t miss the Observer on Thursday for all the local football action and reaction.
