Pagham Smash Six Past Sorry Langney
By Steve Roberts
Pagham 6-0 Langney Wanderers
In what would prove to be Andy Goodchilds last game in charge a quality Pagham team showed no mercy against a make shift Langney team.
With several key players missing it was always going to be tough ask, Adam Davidson (suspended) ,David Smart, Ryan Alexander (Injured), Peter Featherstone, Paul Weatherby, Lucas Mann, Luke Denton (Unavailable).
So this meant a very make shift back line and new formation with first team action for young Dan Carter and Oleg Aleksandrov.
It didn't take long for Pagham to take advantage and quickly went 1 up in the second minute through Howard Neighbour, this was quickly 2 when Shane Brazil slotted home. The third came along in the 25th minute from Liam Humphreys. Live wire Gary Ingram was unlucky not to pull one back just before half time when he hit the crossbar.
Wanderers came out much better second half and were unlucky when Oleg Aleksandrov hit the post from header via a free kick and a Paul Rogers free kick also just went over the bar. The second half Langney resistance lasted until the 68th minute when Callum Overton got in onthe act to Paghams fourth and Howard Neighbour got his second of the match on 70 minutes. Neighbour would then go on to complete his hat-trick just before the final whistle to give Pagham a resounding 6 nil victory.
A disappointing scoreline to say the least in what has been a difficult week for Langney, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and go again for the trip to Shoreham on Saturday (13th)
