Arundel 1 v 3 Mile Oak (League) 30/10/2021

Report courtesy of ‘The Worthing Herald’

 

"Mile Oak win again as the Whitty effect kicks in"

Mile Oak made it three wins from three under the management of Anthony Whittington

Including his game as temporary manager on October 6, a famous cup win v Eastbourne Town, Whitty has won a trio of games, the latest in the SCFL division one against Arundel

There were two changes to the starting 11 v Oakwood as Matt Thompson and Eric Wedge-Bull came in.

Both sides' pre match talks were disturbed by the news one of the officials had to withdraw from the game due to injury, and a spectator enjoying his afternoon in the Arundel clubhouse agreed to step in as a linesman. Mile Oak thanked him for stepping in.

Oak grabbed control of the game from the offset, Zach Haulkham and Wedge-Bull dominating the midfield battle, Enzo Benn marshalling the back line and Harry Furnell causing havoc up top. 

On 20 minutes Furnell scored. Thompson had got in a number of times down the left-hand side, and this time he crossed for Furnell to sidefoot past the Arundel keeper. Fifteen minutes later he had his second - this time the lively Jack Stenning on the right showed some crafty wing play to beat his man and cross wonderfully for Furnell, and he leaped to send the ball back the way it came and over the keeper for 2-0. 

Arundel didn't cause any threat to Oak, and the Arundel No10 picked up a yellow for a late tackle on Karl Gillingham, before Furnell received an elbow in the face just before half-time. Both players needed to be replaced at the break and Furnell went off to A&E.

With Oak impacted at both ends of the pitch, Arundel came out the stronger and had a couple of efforts go just wide, forcing a good save from Aaron Stenning down to his right. 

From 65 minutes onwards Oak regained control, Haulkham carrying the ball for his team and driving Oak up the pitch. Zak Kladis, substitute Jack Marriott and Stenning all had efforts on goal, and had they carried the ball closer to the goal, could have extended Oak's lead. Then Oak switched to a back five and this switch soon paid off.

Lee Early found space on the right to cross to Phil Ingold to head into the far corner on 85 minutes.

Arundel did manage to grab a consolation goal from Broggi during injury time in strange circumstances. Wedge-Bull cramped up and was a passenger and Haulkham appeared to be in a lengthy discussion with the referee and an Arundel player following a late tackle on the Oak captain. The game went on and with Oak's midfield open, Arundel went through to score. It finished 3-1 and MoM was captain Haulkham.

These were three much-needed points for the Oak, but there is plenty more work to do and improvements to make to move up the table.

Mile Oak: A Stenning, Jeffrey, Gillingham (Ingold '45), Benn, Cooper, Haulkham (c), Wedge-Bull, Kladis, J Stenning, Furnell (Marriott '45), Thompson (Early '70).

Pagham make Sussex Senior Cup progress at expense of Arundel

Pagham strolled into the second round of the Sussex Senior Cup with a 4-2 win at Arundel in a game that certainly had its moments.

Right from start the Lions got on top but wasted a couple of early chances. It was a real surprise when the referee awarded Arundel a disputed penalty for hand-ball in the 8th minute in one of Arundel’s rare attacks. Williams sent Lewis Boughton the wrong way to put the Mullets in front.

It took twenty minutes for Pagham to equalise, Grant Radmore finishing a good run and cross by Ryan Hallett. It was Radmore again on 39 minutes, drilling home a low 30 yard free-kick, before Jamie Carroll scored a third less than a minute later, collecting a pass from Jack Barnes and hitting his shot over the keeper and into the net.

The second half started in momentous fashion with Radmore planting the kick-off wide up the right-hand side. Max Davies collected the ball and hared along the touchline. Seconds later he cut inside and rifled his shot past the keeper for his first goal for the club. The whole move took approximately eight seconds from kick-off to goal! Chances came and went but the Lions could not hit the back of the net again and the scoring was completed by a disaster of a goal when a silly mistake allowed Ollie Hawkins to score a simple effort to briefly put Arundel back in the match but try as they might they could get no closer.

Coach Richie Hellen said after the game: "I thought we played tremendously well tonight, moved the ball quickly and controlled the game from start to finish. A night where players who’ve not been getting the minutes needed and a few coming back from injury. Good to see Ash HawkesJamie Carroll back and Jazz Rance building a return with growing form. Chuffed with Radmore and Max Davies scoring goals and playing very well. In the hat and a good night out for us all."

Pagham: Lewis Boughton, Ashley Hawkes (Callum Theobald), Ryan Hallett, Joe Clarke, Jack Williamson, Conor Geoghegan, Jake Heryet, Jack Barnes (Jared Rance), Max Davies, Jamie Carroll and Grant Radmore (Ryan Morey. Sub not used: Ross Edwards.

Report Courtesy of Trevor Knell   Twitter - @trevk37


A local derby between Wick and Arundel in the Southern Combination Division One was my destination with Gareth Spinks and Steve Watson. Both sides I’d already seen in action this season, Arundel on the opening day back in July and Wick at Mile Oak on a rare Friday night outing.

Whilst this season is a re-building project under new Mullets boss Jason Mines, Wick under Lee Baldwin are expecting to challenge for promotion to the Premier Division, both sides however occupying places below mid-table the visitors arrived at Crabtree Park in better form than the hosts.

But it was Wick who got off to the perfect start on a pitch that saw a few struggles with the length of the grass, Conor Bull sliding the perfect ball into the path of David Crouch and the striker made no mistake with the finish, Wick in front after just three minutes.

Despite going behind the goal didn’t seem to shake the Mullets and they set about playing with the ball on the floor, probing and trying to draw the Wick backline into making a mistake.

A majority of the good work coming from the visitors went through Monroe Hector in the middle of the park, Wick finding him quite elusive to mark throughout the first half but the Mullets not quite finding the way through to test home keeper Keelan Belcher.

The visitors did find an equaliser seven minutes before half time however, a free kick swung in from the right hand side saw a Mullets effort pushed out by Belcher to the feet of Kenzie Oatway who made no mistake from a few yards out.

Just as we seemed set for a 1-1 scoreline at half time, Wick took the lead again one minute before the break, a deflected shot from Bull wrong-footed Mullets keeper Jack Hickman and nestled in the back of the net.

Arundel continued to keep the ball down in the second half and tried to pass it through Wick whilst the hosts were fairly equal and content to play on the counter to nick a third goal.

Neither keeper had very many efforts to save and at times a few tasty tackles were going in, the hall marks of a feisty local derby with referee Mark Spence just about keeping a lid on things and twenty-two players still on the park.

With one or two tackles going in leading to free kicks, it was no surprise that this led to the second equaliser for the Mullets, a free kick whipped in from the left this time with Belcher unsure whether to come and claim it or not, Ben Taylor headed home with five minutes left on the clock.

Neither side were able to find a winner in the time left and the bragging rights were shared, in all fairness the right result as neither side did quite enough to win the game.

Both sides remain in the bottom half and with a surprise 2-1 win for Storrington at promotion chasing Roffey the sides below are beginning to catch up.

Wick head to league leaders Midhurst on Saturday whilst Arundel will hope to extend their unbeaten run to seven games as they host Forest Row at Mill Road.
