There’s a three-way tie at the top of the U11s Winter Cup (Cedar League) table, with the destination of the trophy set to be decided tomorrow when Horsham, Worthing Strikers and Felpham Colts play-off at The Camping World Community Stadium from 1130am. And if that’s not enough to whet your Sunday footballing appetite then how about the U14s’ attempts to reach the quarter-final stage of the County Cup when they host Furngate Youth, kick-off at 2.15pm?
But it is our U16s who get proceedings underway when they host 5th placed Lewes Juniors Pumas at 10am, looking to continue their excellent form with another win that would further cement their position at the top of the Mid-Sussex League. After a slow start, in which they won just one of their first seven games, Lewes have lost just one of their last four although that came last weekend at the hands of basement side Cuckfield Cosmos. In the Arun & Chichester League, our U12s will have their work cut out when they meet a Worthing Dynamos Red side that has lost just once in the league this season.
The final fixture to take place at the CWCS tomorrow involves our U15 Amber who have an intriguing match-up with Rottingdean Village, the only side this season to have put a dent in the Hornets’ otherwise perfect record. Although the villagers currently sit 9th in the eleven team division, Horsham cannot afford to underestimate them for a second time especially with nearest challengers Premier United involved in cup duty tomorrow, meaning that an 8th win out of nine by Tony Massimo’s lads would extend their lead at the top of the Mid-Sussex League to seven points. The match kicks off at 12.15pm.
Our table-topping U15s Green face a tough test when they take their 100% league record to 3rd placed Bosham who have, themselves, dropped just three points this campaign. The two sides have yet to face each other this season, in contrast to our U13s who will travel away to Ferring Brazilian Masters for a third meeting between the teams since mid-October. They played each other on successive Sundays with the first, the reverse of tomorrow’s Arun & Chichester League fixture, ending all square and the second seeing Ferring progress through to the next round of the League Cup by virtue of a 4-3 win.
