HORSHAM 2 Bosham 0

Sunday 16th October 2011

Arun & Chichester League

A workman-like performance saw Horsham U15s take all three points in their home clash with Bosham Youth. On a bright but chilly Sunday morning, the young Hornets dominated possession for much of the game but failed to convert their superiority. A positive start saw Andrew Roberts free Rueben Selby down the right and his cross was fired just over from the onrushing Callum Nash. Good work again from Roberts in midfield created an opportunity for a shot which went just wide of right hand post.

A free-kick on the edge of the area, after Will Kerr had been fouled, was then curled just over the 'bar by Harry Lee as Bosham struggled to get out of their own half in the opening quarter of the game. A resilient and well organised visiting defence made it difficult for Horsham to breakdown though, and it was from another blocked shot that Bosham had their first opportunity when the resulting rebound sent their striker clean through but a heavy first touch saw the chance quickly disappear.

The deadlock was finally broken on 33 minutes when Kerr at last found some space in midfield and his delightfully chipped ball found the unmarked Lee who made no mistake from just inside the penalty box. Another long range effort from Kerr flew just over the 'bar to bring the first half to a close.

H/T Horsham 2 Bosham 0

The second half continued in very much the same vein, with Horsham dominating possession but failing to get that elusive second goal. Shots from Nash and Kerr were well saved by the visitors' 'keeper, before Oli East just failed to get on the end of a Roberts corner, all in the opening ten minutes of the restart.

Bosham were always threatening on the break and their best opportunity came on the counter but the striker's shot went wide. Further shots from Nash, Lee and Roberts were again all well saved by the 'keeper before home nerves were finally put at ease when Selby was sent racing clear down the Horsham left and his cross-come-shot was turned in by a sliding Nash at the far post, five minutes from time.
