Horley Town v Three Bridges Amber
Sunday 18th December 2011
Full of festive cheer, Horley Town began the game with a number of well crafted passing moves as they took on their strongest opponents from the opening round of fixtures earlier in the season. As expected, Three Bridges provided a stern examination of the improvement Horley have made in recent weeks. Few chances arose early in the game as the sides matched each other, and the Horley defensive pair of Harry Westlake and Joseph Marshall were relatively untroubled. As half time approached, a strong run from the Three Bridges number 8 saw a low shot directed in the bottom left corner of the Horley net.
Unperturbed, Horley came out for the second half full of confidence. As the game progressed, the pressure began to build and a series of deft passes saw Charlie Whiteside feed Charlie Lansdown on to Harvey Banner whose pass to Taylor Whelan on the edge of the box saw an accomplished low drive into the bottom right corner of the net. Alex Field, making his debut in attack, made a number of important contributions during the game which ended 1-1.
