The weather played havoc with the fixtures on another wet November Sunday, leaving our U15 Greens and U16s frustrated after their matches were postponed. However, there was no such problem for those of our youth sides who had the benefit of playing at The Camping World Community Stadium, with no less than four of our teams completing their matches, albeit with varying degrees of success.
Two unbeaten sides went head-to-head in the U11 Winter Cup (Cedar League) as the Hornets hosted Worthing United Strikers but by the end of a tough encounter it was the visitors whose perfect record remained intact, with Horsham’s consolation goal coming from Sam Abrehart. The CWCS artificial surface came to the rescue of Horsham and Storrington Community’s U12s when their Arun & Chichester League clash was switched to Horsham after the Swans’ pitch was declared unfit yesterday, and both sides put on a good showing for the spectators when another tight affair ended honours even. Adam Gregory, Charlie Little and Zack Rhioui each found the net for the Hornets in a 3-3 draw.
There were goals galore on the main pitch where the U13s entertained Midhurst & Easebourne who came out on top in a ten goal encounter, Harvey Marshall and Lucas Madrow scoring two goals apiece for the defeated Hornets. Meanwhile, U15 Amber continue to march on after recording their 10th win in eleven games with a 5-1 win against local rivals Broadbridge Heath, helped by four goals from Connor Collcutt.

Over at Lancing, the Hornets’ Sam Andrews was in action for the Sussex FA U16 XI versus Guernsey and assisted for the home side’s second goal in a 2-0 victory. Well done Sam!
Huge thanks, as always, to everyone who came along in support of our youth sides today.
