Lancing united 1-0 Clymping Res

This saw the first game in charge of player manager Gareth Challen, who has added a a couple of new recruits to try and stablise the team a little and it did for this game as ping were unlucky not to come away with a draw for this bottom of the league fixture.

Ping captain Billy Nash won the toss and elected to switch ends and play against the wind in the first half, the game started at a hundred miles an hour with lancing having most of the ball and controlling the play, lancing's main threat was there tall centre half (who was also their man of the match) came up at every opportunity from set pieces and there were quite a few which was defended well mostly with the ping goalkeeper coming to claim or great heading by russ, Carl or Ian. The goal came after 30mins from a indirect free kick played short the shot was going wide only for Ian (not knowingly) getting striked by the ball on his hand sending it goal bound nestling in the far corner of the net.

The second half for ping was better with the wind behind them stated to use the wings well and produce some good controlling football. Lancing still had their ariel threat from set pieces but not able to capitalise on there lead, ping growing more and more controlling were in the end unable to find the magic of an equaliser which this match and ping deserved, a great header from tomnhenton went narrowly wide from a Challen corner. The last shot was a lancing effort from 25 yards which leahy in the ping goal managed to parry out.

Not a bad game for a bottom of the league clash and whilst Ping may have felt a draw was a fair result, you have to hit the target to score goals and to be honest, our keeper did not have 1 solitary save to make all afternoon which is a rare thing for him this season!

Pings best player was their No 8 who who battled well just behind the lone striker and it was also good to see Russ Tomlinson back on the pitch after a spell out. Once he is fit, he will be a great player for Ping and I am sure he will be in the front side sooner rather than later.

As for us, the game should have been buried by half time. Thommo was unlucky with a header whilst the Ping keeper made a few decent stops from set plays. The goal was fortunate but whilst Ping had a bit more ball in the second half, the United goal was never threatened.

Philly also came on and missed a couple of chances near the end whilst the Ping keeper made a cracking save in the last minute from a decent strike.

Good to get our first 3 points of the season, especially against the only team below us and now we need to push on and try to catch some of the other strugglers.

Clymping were a decent bunch of lads and I am sure that they will finally get a result and come good in the second half of the season as they usually do. Always good to have a chat with their old lino as well =D> He is a top fella and a real club man that every team needs!

Good luck for the rest of the season chaps.

East Dean fc 2 - 2 Cowfold Res

A bottom of the table clash at the Dean saw a hard fought draw battled out at the Gasson. It was East Dean who opened the scoring as a well taken corner was headed in by Lee Bessy from 5 yards out. Cowfold responded instantly and scored an equaliser as a result of a well taken finish from the edge of the box from their front man - although it was a very sloppy goal for the home side to concede so soon after scoring. East Dean were then probably fortunate to go in at the half 2-1 up as Cowfold were the stronger side for the last 20mins of the half, however after some good work down the left Craig Manchip cut inside and fired home from 12 yards with a good strike that restored the home side's advantage.

East Dean then looked to build on their lead in the 2nd half and were wasteful with a few chances early on. As cowfold began to work their way back into the game they were awarded a penalty for a foul against the home side's right back - the penalty was cooly dispatched by Ant Parsons, who had a good game for the visitors. Both sides will probably feel they deserved to win - but on reflection a draw was probably the fairest result.

Overall a good game for the neutral, but East Dean are still left looking for a win that they hope will kickstart their season!

Comfortable victory for Town, but at times lacked a cutting edge in crucial areas.

An early lead was established when Sean Ardley's cushioned cross was met by a rare, looping header from Simon Rider.

The lead was shortly increased when Ardley was sent tumbling in the box, and in the absence of regular penalty expert James Goodby, Ardley assumed the duty himself and confidently rolled home.

Two further goals followed in the second half; an absolute rocket from Liam Flint's 25 yard left foot drive and a beautiful dink from man-of-the-match Dan Barnard from Jamie Swancott's measured through ball.

Phoenix 3 Dormansland 0

Phoenix entertained old “foes” Dormansland for the second time this season, beating the much fancied title favourites 4-1 earlier in the season. On a sticky pitch both sides struggled to play the football they are capable of, with Phoenix coping with veteran front man and league top scorer Nic Iron comfortably, even the referee laughed at the comical dive after 15 minutes, actually he laughed so much he kept his card in his pocket :lol:
With manager Candlish changing the formation of the team to a more balanced 4-4-2 Liam Barton saw a lot of the ball on the left wing, and created problems all day for the visitors defence. With the new strike partnership of Manville and Canavan starting to tick, Dormansland’s defence was kept busy for long periods of the first half. Canavan did find the net on 32 minutes with a cultured 25 yard strike which flew in the top corner, only for the linesman to raise his flag :shock:
The sides went in 0-0 at half time, but the home side looking the brighter of 2 good sides.
Second half was much the same as in previous weeks, with Phoenix adding pressure looking for the first strike, which came courtesy of Manville, chasing a lost cause he panicked the keeper and got a “lucky” rebound on 56 minutes to put Phoenix ahead. Management duo Candlish and Williams were prepared for a Dormansland reaction, which failed to materialise as Phoenix continued to press for another goal, which again came from Manville who added 2 goals in 2 minutes, taking his tally to 12 in 4 games. This double strike effectively ended the game, as Phoenix celebrated their first double over Dormansland and kept a clean sheet!!!
