Midhurst are proving a popular draw

MIDHURST made it five draws from five in division two of the Sussex League with a 0-0 scoreline at home to Seaford as they continued a start to the season which has seen them play quality football.

But they must start scoring goals or they may find themselves slipping to the odd narrow defeat.

The first half was fairly even although most of the attempts on goal came from the visitors.

Play was robust from both sides and a foul on Ollie Pearce effectivley ended his role.

The second half saw Midhurst sharper and Gary Norgate and Michael Asare were close to breaking the deadlock. With 30 minutes left, Midhurst replaced Pearce with Luke Sheldrick and Asare made way for James Wills.

MIDHURST: Knight, Glue, White, Newton, O’Leary, May, Dummer, Pearce, Hamilton, Norgate, Asare, Farr, Wills.

This Saturday, Midhurst host Westfield.

Midhurst’s seconds have also had a good start to the season , drawing at Loxwood, winning 4-3 at Ferring and winning 2-1 at East Preston in the reserve section cup.
