After a morning of disappointment, having woken up to see the rain, we all knew there were going to be cancellations of the youth squads’ fixtures today and, true enough, the matches involving our U13s and U14 Greens were postponed.
But the Hornets’ U12s blew away all the disappointment when, in severe wet and windy conditions that didn’t dampen the spirits, they defeated their closest title rivals Chichester City Colts White 4-0 to be crowned Arun & Chichester League champions with a game left to play. Sonny Barton, with two, Sam Ayling, and Thom Ong were the goalscorers but this was a fantastic team effort from all the squad and with a League Cup final still to come on March 31st, the ‘double’ is in their sights. Congratulations to Ben, Matt and the whole Horsham U12 squad.
Our U11s were also in action, away to Worthing Dynamos where the pitch conditions and the swirling wind hindered their neat passing football which saw them defeated.
