Storrington made it two wins out of two in Division 1 with a 3-2 victory over Sidlesham on Tuesday.

Joe Warner gave Swans the lead with a long-range effort after a fluent passing move on nine minutes.

Graham Dowden levelled for Sidlesham with a well-taken free kick but Swans went back ahead shortly afterwards when Matt Searle reacted smartly after the visiting keeper failed to clear.

Swans dominated the second period and went 3-1 up on 79 minutes when Iain Jarvie finished confidently from Josh Gibbons’ free kick.

Sidlesham got a second in injury-time but Storrington stood firm to take all three points.

Warner was then sent off for a second booking and a Sidlesham player was also red-carded deep in injury-time.

Swans boss Peter Matthews was pleased with the win and said: “The performance was extremely pleasing and I believe the result was no more than we deserved.”

Storrington visit local rivals Steyning Town on Saturday for a traditional Old Farm Day clash in the Peter Bentley Challenge Cup.

Storrington: G.Elliott; Fraser, Gibbons, Bardouleau, Jarvie, S.Elliott, Rhodie, Searle, Warner, Jearum, Robertshaw. Subs: Stakim Boxall, Lucas, Christodoulou, Meeney.
