Lancing United seem to be a common theme here!
I suppose it is because we keep getting battered at the moment, but hopefully the tides will turn.
Have to agree with a few posts here. Henfield are value for money and simply played us off the park last weekend with their attacking flair. Haven't seen Faygate this year but Henfield have them in the next round of the Centenary Cup so that will be an interesting game.
As for Sompting, they are a real hard working team who battle hard and have quality too, especially in Shaun Russell. However, they play in a weak league for me and they will only be judged by the games they play against L&S and Worthing leisure, and they havent played any of these teams yet....
If you look at the WSFL, it is a much more competitive league where teams rarely spank each other (except for West Chilt who seem to be scoring goals for fun!
Sompting have played 9 and won 9 but the team that speaks volumes is WBCOB. They struggled to finish mid table in WSFL Div 2 South last season but currently sit 2nd in the Worthing Prem with 6 wins from 8 games!
Does this reflect the difference in the top leagues between Worthing and WSFL or are WBCOB much improved?
I suppose history shows that the WSFL is stronger as the likes of Clymping, Dorking, Shipley, Barnham etc have all progressed quickly in the County League whilst Ferring appear to be finding it more difficult.
Any thoughts anyone? Would be interested to hear any opinions.....
P.S, good side to watch this year is Sidlesham for me. Very good team who work hard and have a lot of quality throughout.
Form is temporary, class is permanent...
