Rarely has a scoreline reflected the actual game so poorly.

Leafe had the upper hand in the first 45 minutes, although not much happened at either end.

Bertie Basset, looking resplendent in his replica referee outfit in the Hastings goal, made one great save, dropping instantly at his near post, as only us fat lads can, to push a low shot away for a corner.

The second half was even and uneventful until the 74th minute when Leafe defender Owen Roberts was adjudged to have fouled in the box and the resultant penalty was dispatched. Three quick goals followed as heads had dropped.

The penalty?

Roberts won the ball, but was sliding in and took the player after. The fact the Hastings player screamed like a girl and fell like he had been shot by a sniper in the Gold Aviation stand undoubtedly swayed a dubious decision that divided opinion, but certainly gifted the 3 points to the visiting team.

It was a sickener of an afternoon in the end. An absolute sickener.
