After a couple of dry days, the rain was back with a vengeance on Sunday but all pitches passed their inspections which meant four of our five sides were in action. It was a tough day for all of them, though, with some struggling to put a full complement of players out due to the Easter break. Yet the U12s made light of having only eight of their usual nine players available for their trip down to Chichester as they returned with a fantastic 1-0 win, courtesy of a Ethan Neylon-Lwin goal. U13 Green drew 1-1 at home against a resilient Bognor side, with both goals coming during the first half from the Pebbles’ Edgaras Kazlauskas and Horsham’s Sam McMinn, but U13 Amber’s title hopes are now over after they went down 3-2 to third-placed Chichester City. The well-drilled hosts are now just three points behind the Hornets, with three games in hand, and look to be the only side in with a realistic chance of denying Rustington Otters the title. Without their goalkeeper, the U16s were up against it for their trip to title-chasing Worthing United but battled well before going down to a 7-2 loss with Ben Cole and Jake Relleen on the mark for the Hornets. The U11s were without a game following the conclusion of their Development League programme.
