After destroying the Mid Sussex League 7-1, the Worthing League faced more formidable opponents last night in the shape of a newly formed WSFL side.
Played at Arundel, the WSFL turned out 6-0 winners with goals from Kristian Harding (2), James Wrigley (2), Sam Witherden and Barry Plank with the opener.
A cracking game for the WSFL side who also hit the wood work 3 times and had 2 chances cleared off the line.
There were a few weird decisions from the Lino, especially for the 2nd WSFL goal but the Worthing league were comprehensively beaten on the night by a superior outfit.
Having managed the team for the first time last night I must say all of the lads were a pleasure to work with, putting everything I asked of them into action from the word go and working tirelessly for 90 minutes.
Steve Scott from Henfield was MOM closely followed by Leo Trower from Beeding, Matt Mason from Fittleworth and Barry Plank from Lancing United. James Wrigley was also top drawer as skipper, leading by example.
Interestingly, 8 of the 14 man WSFL squad ply their trade outside of the Prem, showing just how strong the lower leagues are!
WSFL squad as follows.....
Wadey (Petworth), Price (Henfield), Plank (Lancing United), Gander (Henfield), Mason (Fittleworth), Trower (Beeding), Beale (Lancing United), Wrigley (C) (Cowfold), Scott (Henfield), Harding (Cowfold), Witherden (Henfield).....Subs - Thomas (Billingshurst), Bennett (Yapton) and Freeman (West Chilt).
Well done lads
Form is temporary, class is permanent...
