The under 21's came through on Monday evening against Seaford 2-0. Both goals coming in the first half through Callum Hart.
The team played very well, but guilty of missing too many opportunities which could have made it an easier night. The opening goal came on 27 minutes after some superb build up play found Callum who finished neatly into the corner of the goal. His second was on the stroke of half time after being sen through one v one only to check back past a defender to then finish.
Seaford's keeper pulled off 3 saves of the highest level to keep them in it, and United missed several clear / half chances to pull away. The wind in the second half made things difficult, with longer balls being played into Eastbourne's half, however Jenkins was only troubled once, when he did well to get down to a long range strike to tip round the post.
The 21's now face AFC Uckfield next week at home.
