Blues hunt a first win in five

Selsey’s search for a victory rolls on as Daren Pearce’s side made it five games without a victory in midweek.


With a talented young squad, hopes were high at the Bunn Leisure Community Stadium that the club could mount a challenge for a top five spot.


But after a bright start to the season, things have fallen away in recent weeks with the club falling to four defeats in five.


Two of those came in the last week when a brace from Max Davies was not enough to prevent a 3-2 defeat to fifth-place Mile Oak in the league.


That was followed by a 3-2 loss at Worthing United in the Sussex Senior Cup.


It means with nearly a quarter of the season gone, Selsey are sitting eighth in SCFL Division One, six points behind AFC Varndeanians in second.


Despite the poor run, Pearce is set to keep his faith in this young side when his team make the long trip to Bexhill United tomorrow (3pm).


He will be hoping for more luck than in midweek when Selsey surrendered a 2-1 lead to taste defeat to a United side who are winless in the league.


Ryan Morey and Joe Bennett had put the Blues in front after they fell behind to an early goal.


But against the run of play United equalised before scoring a third on the break. Blues were then denied a penalty in injury time when the assistant referee waved for a spot kick only to give an offside.


–In SCFL Division Two, seventh-place Bosham make the trip to play Copthorne tomorrow (3pm).


The Robins make the trip off the back of a week off, as they look to bounce back from a 2-1 loss at Cowfold a fortnight ago.
