Ten man Horsham YMCA ‘mugged’

TEN man Horsham YMCA crashed to an agonising 2-0 defeat to Arundel in the Sussex County League last night.

Despite forcing visiting keeper James Fernandes into three fine saves and hitting the woodwork twice after Dan Smith was sent off, YM conceded twice in stoppage time as goals from Scott Tipper and Steve Gettings snatched the points.

“I couldn’t fault the lads on their second half performance,” commented YM boss Sammy Donnelly. “I thought we were outstanding, but we got mugged towards the end there.

“I said to the lads that our display on Saturday shows how much we have progressed, and again tonight. In the second half we murdered them, and if just one of the shots that hit the target had of gone in, then it would have been a different story.”
