Selsey’s good run of form continued with a comprehensive 3-1 win at home to Midhurst in SCFL division one.

The Blues started on the front foot and were ahead within five minutes, Joe Clarke heading home from close range.

Selsey continued to threaten but a combination of poor finishing and outstanding goalkeeping meant Midhurst were still in the game.

And with their first real attack Midhurst equalised. A deep cross met by veteran striker Gary Norgate was brilliantly saved by Jordan Smith but the rebound fell to Lewis Hamilton, who fired home to make it 1-1 at half-time.

The second half was totally dominated by Selsey, goals by the impressive Tom Groom and a second of real quality from man of the match Clarke made it 3-1.

The Blues continued to create chance after chance but the Midhurst goal survived the onslaught.

Selsey remain on course for a top-six finish which would be great reward for efforts on and off the pitch.

Selsey: Smith, Parsons, Ebling, Low, Kilhams, Lynch, Groom, Manners, Clarke, Chittock, Morey. Subs: McGreal, Corell, Mepham, Dean, Miller.
