BOGNOR Regis Town recorded an emphatic win in their local derby at County League side Selsey to book their spot in the last 16 of the Sussex Senior Cup on Tuesday night.
The gap in class told and throughout the game and Rocks were never really troubled in their 5-0 triumph.
It didn’t take long for the visitors to take the lead as a James Crane through ball in the 11th minute found Harvey Whyte, whose sizzling shot was deflected into the net.
Four minutes later, a pass from Lewis Stockford found Matt Partridge who stabbed the ball into the net from close range to put the Rocks two up.
Selsey had a chance in the 21st minute from a corner, but Graham Bush could only head an effort into the arms of Bognor`s Craig Stoner.
The Rocks added a third goal on 25 minutes when the lively Stockford picked up a ball from the edge of the area and his fierce shot was deflected into the net by James Crane.
The start of the second half saw the home side try to take the game to Bognor, but any pressure was snuffed out by some resolute defending.
The Rocks extended their lead in the 60th minute when a Stuart Axten through ball found Stockford whose hard, low shot gave them a four-goal advantage.
Bognor`s final goal of the game came on 88 minutes when Ashley-Paul Robinson got a well-deserved goal with a rasping low shot.
