Shearing blast for sorry Steyning


STEYNING Town boss Dave Shearing slammed his side’s ‘pathetic’ result after their 9-0 County League humiliation at the hands of Lancing.

Town held out for 25 minutes of their Division 2 fixture on Saturday, but were comprehensively outplayed as goals flew in at regular intervals. Lancing’s Wayne Joseph scored four at the County FA headquarters.

Shearing said: “Up until the 9-0 we were doing okay, we signed some new players and got a couple of draws.

“We’ve just lost to the best team in the league, who can afford to pay people a lot more to play for them. “The game confirmed what we already knew really, that we’re not good enough for this level and we need to strengthen the squad.”
