CHICHESTER picked up four points in their two matches this week, defeating Shoreham on Saturday before gaining a draw against second-placed Hassocks on Tuesday.

A hat-trick from George Landais gave City a 3-1 victory over a poor Shoreham side, who only really posed a serious threat to stopper Anthony Ender once during the first-half.

Landais opened his account midway through the opening period, beating the Mussels’ keeper one-on-one.

City struck again on the hour mark, with Landais collecting a cross and converting from six yards out.

Shoreham reduced the arrears with around ten minutes remaining when John Buggy capitalised on a poorly-defended free-kick, but, straightaway, Landais replied with an absolute peach of a goal into the top corner.

On Tuesday, at home to Hassocks, Chichester still put in a bold performance and deserved their 1-1 draw.

Phil Gault and Dan Jacques both hit the woodwork for the Robins during the first-half, but it was City who made the breakthrough inbetween when, on 35 minutes, Tom Groom’s cross was met by Alex Ansa.

Right at the start of the second-half, a poor clearance gave Hassocks the equaliser when Anthony Hibbert spotted Ender off his line and lobbed the ball into the net.
