STORRINGTON Football Club put in a superb second-half defensive display to seal their third successive win on Saturday.

Swans stopper Jason Downer pulled off a string of fine saves in the closing stages as the home side saw out a narrow win through Liam Humphreys’ first-half strike.

Storrington manager Nigel Dyer saluted his side’s performance as a lot of the squad suffered with illness in the build-up to the match and Luke Jearum joined Arundel the previous day.

He said: “This really was a game of two halves. We dominated the first half and Little Common dominated the second half, with both keepers having very good games.

“Our first-half display was excellent and we probably should have killed the game off before half-time. It was probably the best half of football we had played all season but we just lacked the killer touch.

“Illness definitely affected us in the second half and could have cost us the game, but great credit to the lads, who were so determined to keep hold of the three points.”
