Sussex County Cup 3rd round

Horsham U16s welcomed Lancing Rangers to Southwater Village Centre in this 3rd round County Cup tie. Horsham began in a very attacking formation and it was not long before Greg Gander went close for the home side with a powerful 25 yard shot that the Lancing 'keeper did well to keep out and, shortly after, Zak Comber saw his effort ruled out for offside.

The Hornets kept up the pressure with Ollie Clarke running on to a long through ball from Alex Parsons and shooting just wide of the post. However, with only 10 minutes played, Horsham had to make changes with Jake Waller coming on for the injured Clarke. Horsham continued to press hard and enjoyed much of the possession. Despite the atrocious conditions, some attractive passing movements led to further opportunities for Comber, Harry Smith and then Jake Legrange, whose strike hit the woodwork.

Lancing had their first real chance on 15 minutes but, after being awarded a free-kick just outside the box, 'keeper Lewis Blaney’s safe hands denied the visitors an opening goal. Tom Killner-Brown and Harry Garman came on after 32 minutes and had an immediate impact with Ben Collier firing just wide after latching on to Killner-Brown cross. However, the first breakthrough came on 38 minutes when Garman darted down the left wing and squared the ball to the waiting Comber, who netted coolly.

Dominating the second half, in spite of a progressively deteriorating pitch, the tenacious Horsham team managed to play some really attractive football that led to many attempts being thwarted by a brave and determined Lancing keeper. At 63 minutes Horsham were awarded a clear penalty when Smith cut into the penalty area from the left wing and was about to unleash another strike when he was brought down. Waller stepped up to the mark and calmly converted the spot kick.

Horsham notched up their 3rd goal on 67 minutes; Connor Cushing made a scintillating run down the right and found the excellent Stanley Rice with his cross, who then skipped past the Lancing defence before slotting the ball through for Killner-Brown to finish. Only minutes later Gander had another screaming strike on goal from distance and, this time, found the net.

Horsham continued to push forward with some great interplay that saw the ever reliable Collier and Anthony Jupp supporting the attacks. The young Hornets got their reward with a place in the Quarter Finals when, in injury time, Killner-Brown claimed his second after battling to net a delightful Garman through ball and put the result beyond doubt.
