WORTHING 3 HORSHAM 0

Monday 10th October 2011

Ryman Youth League (South Division)

Woodside Road, Worthing

Attendance: 72

Even though Horsham conceded an early opening goal, Worthing didn't have the game all their own way. With the Hornets team spirit high, the lads pulled together and defended like Trojans. Changes were made to the squad, with illness ruling out both central midfielders Jack Surlis and Conor Brievik. This meant a debut for Piers McDermott who played alongside Dean O'Keefe in the middle of the park. Timi Ojo and Zac Comber were lively up front and were unlucky on several occasions not to level the score. The midfield worked tirelessly with good performances from O'Keefe, McDermott, Ryan Hallett and Pedro Silva. Horsham 'keeper Jonny Burfend made some crucial saves at the right times to frustrate the Rebels and was protected well by the back four of Anthony Jupp, Luke Taylor, Darian Clay and Alex Kingdon.

After the break Worthing still piled on the pressure and, as legs began to tire, Horsham made changes with Ryan Kirkland replacing Silva and Jordan Baxter for McDermott. The Rebels continued to look for a second goal to put the game safe but again were stopped in their tracks by the impressive Burfiend. In the last part of the game Horsham pushed extra players forward as they hunted an equaliser, leaving them open to the counter attack and, in the last five minutes, The Rebels were able to break through to score twice in quick succession to make the final score 3-0.

Horsham travelled home with a defeat but not downhearted as they were competitive and believe they are improving every game. Next game up for the Hornets is an away trip to last year's champions Burgess Hill on Monday 17th October.

On a sad note, Worthing President Morty Hollis had a very nasty fall when putting the floodlights on and fractured his hip. As many of you know, Morty has been very accommodating during our groundshare problems and everyone at Horsham Youth wish him a very speedy recovery and hope to see him at the return game.
