Sussex County Cup 1st round

Three players scored hat-tricks as Horsham Youth's U15s ran out comfortable winners in the first round of the Sussex County Cup.

Ironically, the goalfest started with an own goal after just 3 minutes. A cross from Callum Nash on the right was somehow helped into his own net by the visitors' goalkeeper after pressure from Jack Norris. Nash then missed from close range when it was surely easier to score, following a good run and cross from Oliver East down the left.

He made amends, though, after 13 minutes when he latched onto a through ball from Will Kerr and side footed home. Seven minutes later it was 3-0, Nash again on hand to slot home another perfect cross from East. Chances then came and went on a regular basis with Kerr having the best opportunity to add to the lead before a good interchange between Kerr and Andrew Roberts sent the latter clean through and he coolly finished, low into the bottom right hand corner for 4-0. Another through ball from Kerr then found Adam Ruz in acres of space on the right and he lobbed the 'keeper to make it 5-0 with just over half an hour gone. To their credit, the Wanderers kept plugging away and finally got some reward when Horsham failed to clear and were punished by the visitors' striker.

It didnít take long for the Young Hornets to add to their lead after the break. Just 3 minutes into the second half some good work by Nash down the left, and an unselfish pass from Rueben Selby, gave Ross Williams an easy side foot finish. Kerr finally got on the score sheet when Nash was upended in the box and he smashed home the resultant penalty. Nash then completed his hat-trick when a cross from the left somehow eluded everyone and finished up nestling in the corner of the net.

The visitors' 'keeper then made some good saves to deny Selby and Ruz, and this was followed by a glaring miss by Norris who managed to lob both 'keeper and crossbar when only 6 yards out. Kerr then completed his hat-trick when he scored 2 in 2 minutes. The first was a 25 yard screamer into the top right hand corner, and then he volleyed in a Nash cross to make the score 10-1.

Selby made it eleven when he outpaced the Langney defence before slotting comfortably home. Full back Glenn Johnson then helped himself to a five minute hat-trick when through balls from Joe Petchey and Ruz were neatly finished, before he completed the scoring, robbing the defender and slotting a left footed shot past the stranded 'keeper.
