Summerley Park Rangers 1 HORSHAM 2

Sunday 20th November 2011

Arun & Chichester League

Horsham left it late on Sunday afternoon to secure all three points as a Rueben Selby’s strike, with seven minutes to go, ensured victory over a hardworking Summerley side.

The game got off to a quiet start, with neither side taking control on a postage stamp of a pitch. The first real attack of the game saw Will Kerr release Selby down the right and his shot was smartly saved by the Rangers 'keeper. From the resulting Callum Nash corner, Andrew Roberts ghosted in at the far post to head the Hornets into a one-nil lead after nine minutes.

Summerley responded well though, shooting wide from distance, but the game was a scrappy affair with both sides giving the ball away cheaply. The Young Hornets produced the best move of the game when some neat passing in midfield saw Kerr again release Selby down the right, the hosts' 'keeper's legs this time coming to the rescue.

With Summerley getting plenty of men behind the ball, they were making things difficult for the visitors. And they equalised four minutes before half time when they were awarded a free-kick in a central position, and a Rangers midfielder struck a left foot shot that Horsham ‘keeper Tom Auston was unable to keep out, despite getting a hand to it.

The Young Hornets started the second half brightly, moving the ball more quickly to try and create space on what was becoming a frustrating afternoon. A succession of corners saw half chances for Kerr, whose header was well saved, before Roberts went close with a shot that went just wide just seconds later.

Roberts then saw a free-kick whistle past the post from just outside the area before further chances were created, Harry Lee heading tamely at the ‘keeper when well placed and Selby seeing yet another shot saved by the increasingly busy hosts' stopper.

Kerr then thought he’d restored the Horsham lead but his shot from a tight angle came back off the underside of the crossbar and rebounded to safety whilst, at the other end, Jordan Walser and his defence snuffed out any threat that Rangers posed on the counter. And just when it looked as though time was running out, a long ball from Walser sent Selby clear down the right and this time he made no mistake, drilling the ball into the bottom left hand corner.

With no further chances for either side, Horsham were able to see out the reminder of the game and secure a vital away win, despite a below par performance.
