Horsham put in a scintillating performance in their first competitive match at The Camping World Stadium. However, the side’s 7-1 victory was marred by Josh Mamo suffering a broken wrist in a second half tackle. Horsham were quick out of the blocks and netted six times in the first half, with superb interplay between Joe Simpkin and Max Warren seeing them both bag a brace. Conner Collcutt continued his impressive goal-scoring streak, first striking from 20 yards after a fine team move and slotting home a second before the break. The superb defence of Small, Furneaux, Mamo, Morris and ‘keeper Will Scurr was unlucky to concede for the first time this season through a deflected strike. Lancing were more threatening in the second half as Horsham nullified the game, but Henry Hazell tapped home late on to complete the rout.
