SCFL division one

Four goals in the second half made sure Selsey saw off Shoreham to move up to eighth place in division one.

Joe Bennett had given them a 16th-minute lead before strikes from Max Davies, Ryan Morey and subs Ryan Chittock and Lindon Miller turned it into a five-star show.

Selsey boss Daren Pearce said: “The lads played well and carried out our game plan almost to the letter in rain-soaked conditions.

“Our pitch was in great condition though thanks to groundsman Paul Lee putting in many hours in the morning to get it playable.

“We started well a created some good openings and deserved our lead at half-time and carried on that in the second half, scoring four more and playing well.

“We’ve added a couple of players in the past week and they have fitted into the squad well and contributed on Saturday. We have been a little inconsistent in recent weeks but when we have everyone available and back in the squad we have a great group and we proved this versus Shoreham.”

The Blues were at Steyning on Tursday night and go to Seaford on Saturday.
