Lewes 6 HORSHAM 0

Monday 26th September 2011

Ryman Youth League (South Division)

The Dripping Pan, Lewes

Attendance: 48

The third Ryman Youth match of the season saw the Hornets drop down the table as they lost for the first time in the league to a well organised Lewes side at the Dripping Pan. Early doors Horsham were lively and were not out played. Timi Ojo had a good chance to put Horsham one up inside the first ten minutes but it wasn't to be and Lewes settled down to score two goals in quick succession with their quick winger running the Horsham defence ragged, putting the Hornets on the back foot with a third coming before the break.

H/T Lewes 3 Horsham 0

Horsham regrouped in the interval and worked really hard to contain Lewes but were not rewarded for their efforts when The Rooks were given a blatant off side goal. Captain Darian Clay rallied his side to keep working, which they did, so to concede another two goals after that was disappointing as the lads really gave 100% and put in a good performance, not letting their heads drop while giving it everything they had.

Looking at the game from the sidelines, the 2nd half commitment of the Horsham lads could not be faulted, with many of the squad never previously having played at a venue like the Dripping Pan and one wonders if the 'Wow Factor' played a part. I'm sure the squad will move on from the defeat, take positives out of the game and try to eradicate the mistakes made on the night. Looking at the league results, everyone is pinching points and its going to be a very competitive league in which Horsham are sure to play a part in the final standings.
