Colbran set for Crowborough reunion

A MISERABLE season still has the chance of ending with silverware for Horsham FC.

Tonight the travel to County League Crowborough for a Brighton Charity Cup semi-final - a ground Hornets boss Simon Colbran has very fond memories of.

Colbran guided the Crows through the County League and into the Ryman League for the first time in their history, in a double-winning 2007/08 season which also saw the club win the John O’Hara Cup, before he left to join Worthing.

“I’ve been back there since I’ve left but only to watch so this will be my first competitive game there since leaving,” Colbran said.

“I really enjoyed my time there, the people there are lovely people and I’ve still got lots of friends at the club. I’ll look forward to catching up with them but only after the match, for 90 minutes I’ll be treating it just like any other game.”

Tony Nwachukwu (hamstring) is still missing, and striker Andy Atkins is also out after pulling a thigh muscle in the last match, but otherwise Colbran has a full-strength side to choose from. He did though hint that he may give starts to a few fringe players.

Kick off at Alderbrook Rec is at 7.45pm. We are not doing our usual online updates, but for goals and main match action follow @SteveSxSport on Twitter.
