BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT were beaten 3-0 at Haringey Borough in their first game of 2022.

The R's had gone into the Pitching In Isthmian League Premier match in confident mood, after chalking up back-to-back wins.

However, they were comfortably beaten in North London, with goalkeeper Charlie Turner also saving a late penalty to prevent the R's margin of defeat from being greater.

Goals from Ade Cole and Jorge Djassi-Sambu had put Haringey in charge, by the break.

And Andronicos Georgiou added a third from the spot, soon after half-time.


Writing on Twitter, Regent boss Brett Munyard said: "Not the start to 2022 we wanted!

"Disappointing performance and result but a lesson learnt from all involved im sure. Monday is another day."
