AS IF this Sussex Senior Cup match between Horsham’s two most senior teams didn’t have enough spice to it, the shock decision by Justin Luchford to quit as Horsham boss on Sunday gives the tie even more significance.
The second round match at Gorings Mead will be caretaker-manager Hugo Langton’s first in charge of a struggling Hornets side, who will hope to get one over their landlords Horsham YMCA in a competition they cherish to give their league ambitions a much-needed boost.
Langton has promised immediate changes, and is expected to field a number of new signings in what will be his strongest side.
Now back in the County League, YM have hardly fared much better then their neighbours, although they had won three straight Division One games before Saturday’s FA Vase defeat to Deal.
Both sides will be going all out for victory with pride at stake - it promises to be a cracker.
