STORRINGTON Football Club progressed in the Sussex RUR Cup on Tuesday evening with a 3-1 victory at local rivals Steyning Town.

In an even first half, it was the hosts who took the lead when the ball came off Swans defender Alex Forsey’s shin as he attempted to clear and went into his own goal.

Swans drew level on the hour. Joe Warner’s shot was handled on the line by Ashley Finch, who was sent-off, and Warner scored the resultant penalty.

With a man advantage, Storrington took a hold of the game and Marcus Robertshaw gave them the lead on 74 minutes.

Swans then sealed the win with six minutes to go, when Robertshaw drove the ball home after a 20-pass move.

Storrington boss Nigel Dyer said: “The first half was really even but we were in control in the second half and dominated.

“Even before they had a man sent off, we were on top but really took a hold of the game when they went down to ten men.

“I just want to get some consistency in team selection now, which will give us more consistency in our results.”

STORRINGTON: G.Elliott; Naylor, Forsey, Pickford, Minter; Bardouleau, Jarvie, Garrett, Robertshaw; Ayres, Warner. Subs: Howard, Jarrett, Rhodie, Kingdom.
