HORSHAM 7 East Preston 0

Sunday 18th September 2011

Arun & Chichester League

A cagey start by both sides saw very little activity at either end in the opening exchanges of this Arun & Chichester League clash. The game then started to open up and, after seven minutes, some neat interplay between Will Kerr and Andrew Roberts in the middle of the pitch saw the visitors' defence carved open and the move finished off with a right foot shot from Roberts, low into the bottom left corner.

It took a further ten minutes before Horsham added to their lead, Callum Nash capitalising on a poor back pass before rounding the 'keeper and slotting home for 2-0. East Preston were always dangerous on the break but some strong defending from Alex Moore and Jordan Walser kept any threats at bay. It was then 3-0 after twenty seven minutes as a forward run from the constantly over lapping Glenn Johnson found Rueben Selby in space and his precise cross enabled debutant Harry Lee to side foot home his first goal for the club.

Further chances were created, the best coming from Selby, who, after a flowing move, saw his lobbed effort beat both the Preston 'keeper and the crossbar. Some nice football led to Horsham's fourth goal when Kerr burst into the box and provided an inch perfect pass for Lee to tap in his second of the game. And it was 5-0 on the stroke of half time when the pace of Selby down the left again caused havoc in the visitors defence and his cross was poked home by Nash, sliding in at the far post.

The second half saw the Young Hornets continue to play some good football and keep possession of the ball very easily. The East Preston 'keeper did well to keep out shots from Kerr, Lee and Norris, also holding onto some good crosses from another debutant Oliver East. But the hosts were too strong, and they finally added to their lead when a through ball from East was latched onto by Nash and, despite another block from the 'keeper, Kerr was on hand to chip the loose ball into the empty net.

To their credit, East Preston continued to battle and make Horsham work hard for every opportunity but their resistance was broken again fifteen minutes from time when a great run from Roberts saw him beat two defenders before having his shot well saved. Lee was on hand with the follow up, but his shot was cleared off the line, only to strike the goalkeeper and rebound into the net. Further chances were created but Horsham failed to increase their goal tally.
