HORSHAM 5 Worthing Minors Athletic 0

Sunday 11th September 2011

Arun & Chichester League Challenge Cup

A brace each from Rueben Selby and Alex Moore saw Horsham Youth U15s ease into round two of the League cup on a blustery day at home to Worthing Minors.

The home side made a slow start and, had it not been for the alert Tom Auston who made two smart saves in the first quarter of an hour, the final result may have been a lot different. Having said that, though, Horsham did have a good opportunity to take the lead after just three minutes when a flicked header sent Callum Nash clean through, only for his shot to be well saved by the visiting 'keeper.

Selby was causing all sorts of problems down the left flank before the breakthrough came after eighteen minutes when Jack Norris released Nash down the right and his cross come shot was misjudged by the Worthing 'keeper who could only help the ball into his own net. It was 2-0, four minutes later, as Selby finally got his reward for an impressive start to the game, twisting and turning before chipping the 'keeper from a tight angle.

To their credit, Worthing kept battling and almost pulled a goal back on the half hour when a long clearance was latched onto by the Minors' striker but his lobbed effort cleared both ‘keeper Auston and the Horsham crossbar.

The second half was more straight forward for the Young Hornets as they began to dominate possession. They got off to the perfect start when a corner from Andrew Roberts was headed back across goal, giving Moore the easiest of tasks to tap in for 3-0. The game then got a little ill tempered, not helped when the League appointed referee was forced to leave the field with a back injury, and replaced by a spectator (who was a qualified referee).

Horsham kept their concentration, though, and made it 4-0 after fifty three minutes when Selby was sent through by Moore before coolly finishing from just inside the box. Four minutes later the game was well and truly over as, this time, Glenn Johnson released Moore who did the rest, making it 5-0. Further chances were created and only some fine goalkeeping kept out shots from Aaron Pyzer and Joe Petchey before a brilliant double save denied Will Kerr from adding to the score sheet.
