Chichester City Youth 5 Pagham Youth 0
With an A Division Cup semi-final place at stake, Chichester knew they had to win the midfield battle to advance. They did just that in a resounding 5-0 win.
They opened the scoring on 25 minutes when Jake O’Brennan met a James Glanville corner and powered home a header. This soon became 2-0 when Sam Weller sent over a cross-come-shot which flew into the back of the net.

Glanville then swung in another free-kick for O’Brennan to grab his second off his shoulder.
The Chichester defence kept the Pagham attack quiet with keeper Zak Cogger not having to make one meaningful save in the whole game.
The fifth came when Josh Mill found himself at the far post to meet a cross and score his first goal for Chichester.
A dominant win for Chichester was well reffed by Martyn Charndler.
