Felpham Colts 1 HORSHAM 10

Sunday 6th November 2011

Arun & Chichester League

A six-minute hat-trick from Callum Nash inside the first twenty minutes set Horsham on their way to a comfortable league win over bottom side Felpham Colts.

The young Hornets started brightly, dominating possession from the start, and they could have taken the lead as early as the fifth minute when a good run and cross from Oliver East was turned in by Nash but his effort was ruled out for offside. East then went close himself, hitting the post with a header from an Andrew Roberts corner.

But the deadlock was broken after fourteen minutes when Roberts fed Jack Norris down the right and his cross found the unmarked Nash who side footed home from five yards. Three goals then followed within the space of four first half minutes, Roberts and Harry Lee combining to send Will Kerr clear and he finished with a low right foot shot. Nash then netted twice in as many minutes, first sent clear by Lee to easily beat the onrushing ‘keeper before getting on the end of another fine run and cross from East.

More pressure from the visitors followed, Lee curling a free kick just over before he finally got his reward midway through the first half when he turned neatly on the edge of the area and struck his effort low into the corner. He could have had his second and Horsham’s sixth, five minutes later, but he shot over when well placed in the penalty area.

Felpham did create the odd chance on the break, a dipping shot from their midfielder that went just over the 'bar and a free-kick that went just wide. But the half finished on a high for the Hornets as Kerr and Norris combined well down the right, with the latter’s shot pushed onto the post and Lee on hand to tap in the rebound for 6-0. Roberts was unlucky not to extend the lead even further when his shot came back off the post, hit the goalkeeper and then appeared to go over the line, although the referee ruled otherwise.

The second half started in similar vein, with the young Hornets enjoying a lot of possession, Joe Petchey going close when his header was well saved by the home ‘keeper. Petchey then turned provider, as his corner failed to be cleared by Colts, and Jordan Walser hooked a right foot shot against the crossbar.

Norris again assisted a good cross from the right, minutes later, but Nash and Adam Ruz just failed to apply the required touch. It was against the run of play but Felpham finally achieved a fully deserved reward for their hard work and 'never give up' attitude. A break down the Horsham left was only half cleared and the resulting cross from the right was side footed home by the Colts striker.

This, however, only seemed to spur Horsham into further action as they responded with three goals in as many minutes. A long throw from Walser was met by Kerr, whose header found the bottom left hand corner of the net. Ross Williams then rifled home a shot from twelve yards, after good work from Nash, before Roberts finally got on the score sheet after a great run and strike.

With just under twenty minutes to play, Horsham had further opportunities to add to their lead. Petchey had two further headed attempts saved by the home stopper and Glenn Johnson ballooning a shot well over when well placed in the penalty area. But the best strike of the game came with three minutes left on the clock, when another Horsham attack was cleared and the ball fell nicely to Lee whose 35 yard rocket gave the ‘keeper no chance, flying in off the left hand upright.
