Our U16s were the early risers, away to Broadbridge Heath in the first round of the John Davey (Sussex County) Cup, and ran out comfortable 6-0 winners, going through to the next round in which they meet either Hastings or Haywards Heath. The goalscorers were Ben Auberey (2), Harvey Woollard, Jonny Ruiz and Sam Andrews.
The U11s were at home to Lancing in the Coral Cup and christened the new portable dugouts with another good day at the Football office, also tucking away 6 goals through Sam Abrehart (2), Harry Duvergier, Sammy Painter, Zac Langford and Jack York.
Playing host to Mile Oak Wanderers, our U14s were hoping to maintain their 100% home record and didn’t disappoint the crowd this week, netting a magnificent 7 thanks to efforts from Frankie Mills (2), Stan Berry (2), Zac Jeanes, Luke Harrison and Joe Sherwood.
The U12s made it back-to-back wins when they came back from their visit to Worthing Minors with the points thanks to a good all-round performance in which Tom Wythers (2), Josh Backer and Adam Gregory were on the mark.
It was a game of two halves in the U13s’ match at Chichester City where the home side stole the show in the first half and although Horsham cane bouncing back in the second, it wasn’t quite to be their day as Chichester Ran our 4-3 winners. The Hornets’ goals came from Thom Ong (2) and Markos Panoutsos.
Due up odd numbers of teams in their respective leagues, neither of our two U15 sides were in action today.
On Monday night, Horsham’s U14s host Brighton & Hove Elite with a 6.45pm kick-off st the Camping World Community Stadium for what will be a good test for Alex Bethell’s young side.
