Harvey Sparks’ late winner ensured Horsham got their 2019 pre-season campaign off to a winning start in an action-packed encounter at The Shooting Field.
George Hayward opened the scoring after sixteen minutes before Ryan Timms equalised for the hosts just four minutes later. Steyning took the lead on the half-hour mark through Ben Hand but the Hornets pegged back the home side almost immediately with Hayward grabbing his second.
Horsham retook the lead after the break, thanks to Sparks’ sublime near-post finish, but a stubborn Steyning side brought themselves level once more after Mayckol Sabino’s strong header.
Not to be outdone, the Hornets rallied once more and Sparks secured his brace with a fine last-minute effort to secure victory for Dom Di Paola’s side.
