Bognor Town 6 Worthing United Colts 2

It was a poor start from Bognor, losing possession regularly. This led to the first goal for Worthing after a foul on the edge of the box and a free-kick converted by a Worthing midfielder.

Things got worse for Bognor when Worthing’s left-sided midfielder scored a cracking volley from 20 yards.

Bognor were still playing good-quality football and they grabbed a goal before the break with Jack Parkinson first to react to the loose ball in the box.

They equalised through Ollie Hambleton, then began pushing for the win.

Will Lintott scoring two in quick succession, making the score 4-2 to Bognor.

New arrival Bart Kosmalski got his first for the club and Bognor’s fifth.

The game was put to bed by Parkinson, who got Bognor’s sixth just before full-time.

Bognor: Scott, Bain, Mockford-Allot, Lechkofski, Hauxwell, Haga-Hammond, Wallers, Bennett, Swanson, Greece-Harber, Parkinson, Lintott, J Pardey, Van Driel, Hambleton, Kosmalski.


A good weekend for Bosham’s youth section was rounded off with 4-2 victory for John Stead’s under-18s against Worthing Brazilian Master Youth in B division.

Harry Lidster netted a hat-trick, with Bradley White also on target.
