Polegate Grasshoppers 1 HORSHAM 2

Sunday 30th October 2011

Sussex Sunday Youth League

Horsham began this match in lively fashion with some great passing football, with Harry Garman and Ben Collier particularly productive down the left flank and time again put in dangerous crosses which were not capitalised on. With Zak Comber and Jake Legrange up front it looked just a matter of time before the deadlock was to be broken. Harry Smith was partnering Cushing in the Horsham midfield, due to Parsons being unavailable, and it was Smith who opened the scoring on 11 minutes when some smart play in midfield by Connor Cushing set up Harry Smith whose shot from 20 yards dipped under the Polegate crossbar.

This goal seemed to spur Horsham on and again most of the play was in the Polegate half although they defended resolutely with the Polegate 'keeper on good form. On 25 minutes it was Cushing again with a through ball between the Polegate centre back and full-back that found Garman who cut into the box, drew the 'keeper off his line and then unselfishly cut the ball back for Comber to tap home Horsham's 2nd.

It then seemed that Horsham would go on to win comfortably but, to Polegate's credit, they continued to close down well and work hard. It was this work ethic that carved out what could only be described as a half chance on the edge of the Horsham box but Polegate's number 10, with little back lift, hit the sweetest shot which had goal written all over it as soon as it was struck and Blaney in the Horsham goal was left as a spectator as the ball flew into his top right corner.

The second half was more even than the first, with both teams working hard and as Polegate pushed for the equaliser Horsham made some changes with Killner-Brown coming on for Smith and Rice on for Clarke. Horsham did have the ball in the net when Killner-Brown headed in a floated free kick from Rice but he was deemed to have strayed offside by the Polegate linesman. In all a satisfying result for Horsham who know they can play a lot better.
