Bosham’s surge up the SCFL Division Two table continues after the Robins bagged their fourth win on the bounce.
A hat-trick from Jake Lafferty, along with second-half strikes from Alex Barnes and Ryan Coombes, sealed a 5-3 victory over Ferring in what was a thrilling encounter at Walton Lane.
The three points over the bottom side have lifted Bosham up to tenth in the 15-team division.
It has been a case of the Robins enjoying the wintry conditions as, after a poor start to the season, they have strung together a winning run which has seen them pick up with nearly two thirds of their points coming in the last four matches.
Danny Mullen’s side will be looking to keep that going when they welcome Angmering Seniors to Walton Lane tomorrow (2pm).
The visitors are new to the league but have impressed and are currently top after winning their last ten in all competitions.
During that time, they have netted49 times – an average of nearly five goals a game – meaning the Bosham defence will need to be on their guard.
In SCFL Division One, Selsey and Sidlesham will head into 2019 looking at different ends of the table.
The local rivals clashed on Boxing Day with the Blues coming out 3-0 victors thanks to a brace from Ryan Morey and a Dan Bassil strike.
A bumper crowd of more than 250 certainly made it an entertaining match with eight yellow cards being handed out.
It was Blues’ fourth win in five in the league and sees Daren Pearce’s side head into 2019 in fifth spot, well placed to put pressure on the top four.
Selsey will look to keep that form going tomorrow when they head to third bottom Worthing United (3pm).
Sids, who are six points above the drop zone, will host mid-table Wick tomorrow (3pm).
