Arundel FC’s *Liam Brady* makes FA Cup History

Sussex footballer makes FA Cup history on senior debut

Young gun Liam Brady made his own piece of FA Cup history over the weekend.

Liam Brady, 16, got the opener to become the first player born in the 21st century – after December, 31 2000 – to net in English football’s oldest cup competition as Arundel ran out 4-1 winners over Combined Counties Premier Division Chertsey Town FC at Mill Road on Saturday.

The young debutant, dual-signed with Bostik League Premier Division Bognor, was forced off at half-time after picking up a knock before Harry Russell struck twice and Ben Gray netted in the second half to ensure Mullets’ progress.

Arundel secured £2,250 in prize money for the victory and have been rewarded with a home tie against division-higher Bostik League South East Herne BayFC in the preliminary round on Saturday week.

Liam Brady, appearing in the FA Cup for the first time, said it was a day he’d never forget.

He said: “It’s brilliant to have made my own bit of history in the FA Cup, it felt good getting the goal. I took a bit of a knock and had to come off at half-time but I was pleased the team went on to win the game.

Simon Hull; (Arundel manager) has shown great faith in me and given me chances, I was just happy to get a goal for the team.

“I’m dual-signed with Bognor and train with them and Arundel each week. My family were really proud, my mum was at the game and saw me get my goal.

“It’ll be a tough test in the next round against Herne Bay but it’s a game that myself and the squad are really looking forward to.”

Mullets manager Simon Hull has been tracking Brady for a couple of years and had no hesitation handing him his competitive debut in the FA Cup. Hull’sdecision paid dividends as the Tangmere-based talent got the opener to set Arundel on their way to an FA Cup win.

Hull said: “Liam is a winner and someone I have watched for a couple of years during his days with the youth teams at Barnham Trojans.

“I gave him a chance in our pre-season friendly against Paulsgrove FC, he impressed there, so was deserving of his place in the team for our FA Cup game.

“He’s a winner, a real talent technically and battles for everything on the field.

Liam is dual-singed with Bognor, a really promising talent, what we can offer him is senior football now which will hopefully benefit him in the long run.”

(Clinical Arundel cruise to FA Cup victory)

 Harry Russell netted twice, with a goal apiece for Liam Brady and Ben Gray in Arundel's FA Cup win over Chertsey Town.

 

 Arundel Football Club recorded their first win of the season in impressive fashion on Saturday.

Simon Hull’s side had drawn their opening two SCFL Premier Division matches but were comfortable 4-1 winners over Combined Counties Premier Division Chertsey Town in an FA Cup extra preliminary round clash at Mill Road.

Frontman Harry Russell was at the double - getting his first goals of the new campaign - while Liam Brady and Ben Gray were also on the scoresheet as Mullets secured £2,250 in prize money.

Manager Simon Hull, whose side will welcome division-higher Bostik League South East outfit Herne Bay in the preliminary round on Saturday week, felt it was a brilliant day for all involved at Arundel.

He said: “I was delighted for the lads and everyone connected with the football club. It’s a great tonic for everyone and the prize money is most welcome.

“We weren’t at our best on Saturday, we played better football in our last game but Saturday we were more clinical. 

“I couldn’t fault the attitude and work-rate of the boys. The challenge for us now is to maintain these levels and consistency. We have a really good group of lads and some fantastic talent so looking to the future I’m sure we have some exciting times ahead.”

Young Liam Brady, 16, marked his first ever FA Cup appearance by netting the opener in Arundel’s win. 

Ben Gray’s defence-splitting pass found Harry Russell who unselfishly pulled the ball back for Brady to fire home.

Chertsey saw a lot of the ball, having some prolonged spells of possession and creating a couple of openings, but Mullets went in leading 1-0 at the break. 

Arundel got off to a dream start in the second period as Harry Russell’s low drive doubled the home side’s advantage three minutes after the interval.

Chertsey threw everything at Mullets in the hope of getting back in the game. Goalkeeper Dan Stevens pulled off a fine stop to preserve Arundel’s two-goal advantage 25 minutes from time before Harry Russell got his second soon afterwards. 

The visitors kept going and pulled one back on 90 minutes but Ben Gray- getting his second goal in three matches since signing from Littlehampton Town in the summer - ensured Mullets’ progress with a thunderous finish three minutes later.

Arundel boss Simon Hull is delighted the club have another home tie in the next round and said: “We’ve got a huge challenge in the next round against Herne Bay, it’s something we are all looking forward to as a group and excited about the challenge of facing a very good outfit.

“I’m delighted for the lads, they’ve worked very hard, but we still have a long way to go and plenty to prove.”

Arundel host newly-promoted Langney Wanderers on Saturday, then Hassocks visit Mill Road on Tuesday.

Arundel 0 v 0 Crawley Down Gatwick 07/08/18

 

Report courtesy of ‘Lewis Mason’ ‘The Littlehampton Gazette’ Thank you 

 'Superb' Arundel held at home by resolute Crawley Down Gatwick Arundel were held at home by Crawley Down Gatwick last night. 

 Simon Hullwas left wondering how Arundel failed to secure a first SCFL Premier Division success over Crawley Down Gatwick in their opening game at Mill Road this season last night. Mullets were dominant throughout but failed to find a way through a dogged Crawley Down. 

Forward Ben Gray, fresh from netting his first goal for the club on debut in the opening-day draw at Eastbourne United three days earlier, came closest for Arundel. His first-half effort came back out off the underside of the crossbar, while frontmen Shane Braziland Harry Russell also had good chances. 

 Mullets had much of the better chances and play for the second game in succession but manager Hullwas disappointed his side have failed to come away with victory in either. 

 He said: “The lads were superb. We did everything except stick the ball in the back of the net. “We played some really good stuff and, carved Crawley open at wll in the first period but were unable to find the back of the net. “Ben Graycame closest, hitting the underside of the bar after a ten-minute lighting delay. “The back five were excellent and restricted Crawley Down to one chance of note in the first half. 

 “It was a closer affair after the break but we still created good chances. Shane (Brazil)and Harry (Russell)went particularly close. I’ve got no doubt we’ll play worse and win games this season. The feeling after the game is that it was another two points dropped but I was delighted with the performance and how solid we looked at the back. We kept probing and created really good chances. “There’s a lot of new faces at the club but the signs are positive. 

 “We have plenty of work to do but I’ve got a terrific set of lads here with a great attitude and desire to work hard and improve.” A heavy lightning storm in the area forced a ten-minute delay in play after 17 minutes. Mullets came out the brighter after the stoppage, Gray flashing a crisp effort past Crawley Down goalkeeper Sebastian Bosonly for his effort to come back out off the underside of the crossbar.

 Arundel continued to probe after the restart, going close on a couple of occasions as they went in search of a first win. Brazil and Russellwere particularly threatening but the home side just could not find a way through. Young Brazilwent close to making the vital breakthrough, as did fellow frontman Russell, but Crawley Down hung on to come away with a well-earned point. 

 Arundel’s attention now turns to the FA Cup as they entertain Combined Counties Premier Division Chertsey Town in a extra preliminary round tie on Saturday.
