Blues blossom as winter run rolls on

Selsey’s starlets continue to blossom as the Blues’ march up the SCFL Division One continues.

 

Daren Pearce’s side are on a run of just one loss in seven in the league, a string of results which has seen them consolidate their position in fifth.

 

Blues continued that run over the last week, picking up four points from six in testing circumstances

 

First was a goalless draw against leaders Steyning Town before ten men Blues defeated Southwick 2-0 away in midweek.

 

With a home match against Littlehampton Town coming tomorrow (3pm) Pearce will be hoping his young Blues side can continue their good run of form.

 

It was a case of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object when the two best defences met at the Bunn Leisure Stadium last weekend.

 

Selsey matched the leaders Steyning all the way but could not break down the miserly Town defence.

 

In midweek, Blues needed to show another side to their character when they were reduced to ten men in the first half.

 

But they rallied and second half strikes from Remi Coates and Lindon Miller secured the victory.

 

Fellow SCFL Division One side Sidlesham also continue to impress.

 

Avoiding an immediate return back to intermediate football has always been the goal for Steve Bailey’s side this year.

 

But recent weeks has seen the side string together an impressive run, something they continued this past week.

 

An excellent showing on the road at Littlehampton last weekend saw Sids make the short trip home with all three points.

 

Cameron Corell gave the yellow and greens the lead in the first half before David Rough and Joe Gromett struck late to seal a 3-2 victory. Sids followed that up in midweek with a 2-2 draw against

 

Mile Oak, Matt Boulton and Frazer Smith getting the goals.

 

Next up is a home match against Worthing United tomorrow (3pm) who are revitalised after appointing a new manager.

 

In SCFL Division Two Bosham welcome third-place Roffey to Walton Lane tomorrow (3pm) keen to extend their unbeaten run to eight matches. Robins drew 2-2 with Brighton Electricity last weekend thanks to an Andy Reynolds late equaliser.
