SImon Colbran has told his Horsham side to banish the ghost of last season’s relegation from the Ryman Premier Division.

The Hornets suffered their first loss of the 2012-13 campaign on Tuesday night as three goals in a devastating second half spell saw Eastbourne Town come from 1-0 down to run out 3-1 winners.

He said: “They are all quality players but the vibe from last year is still around. I don’t know why but it’s like a ghost from last year. We’re a completely different side and in another league.

“With the players we have they should be up in the top half. We’ve just got to pick ourselves up and go on a run for eight or nine games and all this will be forgotten.”
