CHICHESTER continued their good form with a 2-1 success over Shoreham in division one of the Sussex League.

The only downside was an injury to Morgan Forry, who now seems likely to miss the remainder of the season.

Forry played a key part in this latest victory and had a chance to score right at the start although keeper Matt Evans saved.

And it was a Forry free-kick on 50 minutes that led to City’s first goal – an opportunist effort from Julian Boniface, who was lurking in the right place at the right time to convert from short-range after the ball came off the keeper’s chest.

Harry Williams unleashed an incredibly-powerful shot for Chichester, but Shoreham levelled through Ben Wheatland.

But at the finish, City were playing the better football and deservedly took the points when sub Alex Ansa sent in a spectacular 20-yarder with 6 minutes remaining.

Lewis Edwards has rejoined Chichester from Hayling United.

City joint boss Neil Sherlock said: “I’m very pleased with out run of results over the past ten games - we’ve only lost twice and have drawn three and won five.

“Although perfomances haven’t been as good as we are capable of, we are still getting results. Not playing well and winning is not a bad habit to get into.

“But I would really like us to play the way I know we are capable of over our last three games to finish on a high and get some more points on the board before our campaign is over.”

CITY: Ender, Williams, Eyres, Boniface, Sanashee, Hegarty, Groom, Kilner, Gromett, Forry, F Smith. Subs: Ansa, Edwards.
