Newhaven Under 18s suffered a disappointing four days as they exited both the FA Youth Cup and the Sussex Youth Cup to higher level opposition.
On Thursday evening the young Dockers welcomed Dorking to Fort Road in an FA Youth Cup Preliminary fixture. With extra-time looming the visitors scored the only goal of the game in the 3rd minute of injury time to progress to the First Qualifying Round. Match Report / Photos
