Horsham U15’s 0 Barnham U15’s 13
Arun & Chichester League Challenge Cup
Date: 15.01.17
On a cold, wet and windy afternoon, top of Division C U15s – Horsham Youth – met top of Division A U15’s Barnham Trojans in the semi-final of the Challenge Cup.
The Trojans started the match confidently and were quickly in their stride with great movement and incisive passing. The Hornets were up to the challenge and after initially soaking up a lot of pressure started to get a foothold in the game, creating a few chances of their own. On about the thirty minute mark Barnham opened the scoring with a well worked goal. The Hornets were holding their own with their customary 4-2-3-1 formation and were unlucky to go 2-0 down just before half time.
The second half began in much the same vein and, after holding out for ten minutes, the Trojans’ brand of quick possession began to take its toll the Hornets’ legs. The Hornets battled on until the end but The Trojans created chance after chance and many of them were taken at regular intervals through the half.
The game was played in great spirits by both sides and the Hornets can take a lot out of the game. Horsham have played fantastically well to get to the semis, knocking out two Division A sides on the way.
Well done lads.
