Uzun and Senior see off Horley
By Gary Brigden
A Josh Uzun double and first goal for Ben Senior gave the first team a 3-1 win over Horley Town.
The first team was back in action again this time in league action when they welcomed Horley Town to Gander Green Lane.
Horley town started of the game in high gear putting on the pressure straight away.
The deadlock was broken in the 10th minute when Martin Smith for Horley was able to pick the ball in the middle of the pitch to be able to create himself some space to get his shot off beating Ollie Ellaway down at his near post.
The game quietened down for a while with the lads just trying to get their footing back into the game, while Horley just played slow football gently moving up the pitch.
We finally found a way back into the game when we were awarded a penalty in the 22nd minute that ended up being put away calmly by Josh Uzun in the 23rd minute to put the game one a piece.
The first half was coming to a close and nothing else had happened with both teams just wanting to control the game and see the first half out.
Half time came around with it still being one apiece, leaving the next 45 minutes a chance for either team to be able to secure all three points.
The second half kicked off the same way the first half ended with both teams just trying to hold onto possession and slowly move their way up the field to find an opening to be able to create a chance on goal.
In the 64th minute we made our first change of the game with Kyle Henry being replaced by Phil Page
After only 6 minutes of being on Page had an assist down to his name after he was able to chest down a great cross into the box from Matt Tanton, with the resulting ball falling to Uzun who was able to hold of the Horley defender to slot home his second of the game giving us the lead.
In the 74th minute we made our second sub with goalscorer Uzun being replaced by Adam Allen, and a minute later we made our third and final change with Ben Senior replacing Jordan Gallagher
In the 77th minute we extended our lead by two goals when Matt Farrell picked up a loose ball outside the Horley box, found some space to get a pass out to a on running Ollie Twum on the left wing who was able to first time put the ball into the box on the floor that found its way to Senior who slotted home putting us 3-1 up
The rest of the second half slowly came to a close securing another win, the lads turn their focus onto our next game when we host Cobham FC in the first round of the FA Vase
