As if the seniors’ BetVictor Isthmian League match with Bishop’s Stortford today isn’t enough for you, we have another exciting day of football at The Camping World Community Stadium tomorrow, with three of our youth sides in action including a cup semi-final!
Yes, not content with heading the Mid-Sussex League Division One table, our U15 (Amber) side are just 90 minutes from an appearance in the League Cup final. Standing in their way are Haywards Heath Town who, despite playing a division below Tony Massimo’s side, accounted for the Hornets’ closest title challengers Premier United in the last round, one of seven victories in their last eight outings. Horsham have played just twice since Christmas, going down to an agonising 1-0 loss to East Grinstead in the quarter-finals of the County Cup but putting three goals past the same opponents the following week that set up tomorrow’s tie. With their scheduled match against Lancing United postponed last Sunday, the Hornets should be champing at the bit to get back in action and they would love to have your support. The match kicks-off at 10am.
Also enjoying the benefits of home comforts are the U12s, who host basement side Worthing Minors hoping to make it a league double over the seasiders, having beaten them 4-0 away from home back in October. The Hornets have won both their matches in 2020 and are comfortably in mid-table while Worthing’s solitary success came in their second match of the season. Our U14s will be hoping to extend their perfect Mid-Sussex League record when they take on AFC Crawley Flyers tomorrow. The Hornets’ unblemished record in all competitions this campaign has seen them open up an eight point lead at the top of Division One and into the final of the League Cup and last four of the County Cup but they will be wary of Crawley’s attacking threat, the Flyers having scored 13 against Fishersgate, 17 in two matches with Perrywood Hurricanes, and six in the opening league fixture at Furngate.
Away from home, our U11s go to Ferring Brazilian Masters looking to make it four wins from four in the Arun & Chichester Development League, while Worthing Town Yellow become the latest side to try and stop the U15 Greens‘ juggernaut that has won every one of their eleven Arun & Chichester League matches this season. Our U16s will want to avoid any slip-ups from their visit to Three Bridges, with second-placed Eastbourne Borough just six points behind them having played two games less. The two sides met at the CWCS in the second match of the season when two goals from Aden Radojevic saw the Hornets to victory but Bridges will want to put in an improved showing from their most recent run-out when they went down 5-2 to Eastbourne a fortnight ago.
