Broadbridge Heath 1 v 1 Arundel 03/11/18


Report courtesy of https://www.wscountytimes.co.uk/sport/football/local Thank you 

 

Broadbridge Heath drop two points against Arundel - but what happened in the farcical eight minutes where no football was played?

 Broadbridge Heath dropped two points when they failed to take advantage of the lion’s share of possession and numerous chances against a determined Arundel team who showed the spirit that had previously gained them a point at high flying Pagham despite playing much of the game with ten men. 

 The game may well be remembered for a farcical period of right minutes when there was no football after one of the referees assistant's refused to let Heath sub Tim Cook on to the pitch. It later transpired that he did not have the right name in his notebook. This came at a time when Arundel were under immense pressure and the halt to Heath’s momentum led to great frustration. 

 No sooner had Referee Ian Holmwood sorted out the problem than the linesman was again stopping the resumption of play after he heard a comment apparently directed towards him from the bench after much confusion Charlie Pitcher was sent from the dugout despite the management of both teams informing the officials that Pitcher had not made any comment. It is likely that the club will appeal to sort out the confusion

 The game had started with Heath having the vast majority of possession with Devon FenderTim Rivers and George Cousins going close with Arundel being saved by goal line clearances and excellent goalkeeping from Dan Stevens. Heath had a penalty appeal award turned down after Rivers appeared to be fouled and after Fender was forced off with an injury, his replacement, Ollie Moore’s pass backwards was turned by a goal-wards by a defender, putting Rivers clean through only for the assistant to flag for offside. 

 Despite having most of the play they were nearly caught on several occasions by Arundel breaks leading to an important save from Kieron Thorp and then a shot rebounding from the underside of the bar and bouncing the right side of the line from Heaths point of view. Max Howell also had to join the ‘off the line club’ with a double clearance after the visitors had broken swiftly from a Heath corner. Heath had been playing into a low sun and against a stiff breeze which was causing problems when dealing with balls in the air and one of these led to Arundel taking the lead. 

 A cross to the far post saw Leach unable to see it until the last moment and it bounced off his shin and dribbled across the goal creeping in at the opposite post despite the sprawling efforts of Thorp. Heath began the second half with renewed determination and pinned the visitors back for much of the half but with Jordan Dudas marshalling his defenders well the equaliser was not going to come easily. 

 More scrambles and six yard box clearances led to a stream of corners and it was from one of these the bears eventually broke through. Bold’s corner was headed goal-wards by Martyn Flack only to be blocked by a defender but as he fell Flack managed to drill the rebound into the bottom corner. With 3 minutes remaining Heath went in search of the winner and again missed a series of clear and half chances. Max Howell had a shot blocked, Moore’s shot was inches wide and Rivers had a handful of shots that were just too high. George cousins was causing havoc running at his marker and often getting deep into the Arundel penalty area and from one of these the ball was scrambled off the line by a combination of Stevens and Dudas. In the final seconds Cousins broke through again and Stevens came flying out bravely at the Heath man’s feet the ball came back to Moore whose shot was blocked, but meanwhile the Arundel goalkeeper’s momentum had taken him straight through Cousins leaving him in a heap on the ground. However, referee Holmwood, who had controlled the game well in difficult circumstances, felt there was no foul. The final whistle went shortly after and Heath had to be content with a draw, when by taking just one more of their chances they would have found themselves in the top six of the Premier Division which has been the stated aim for this year. 

 

Heath Lineup: Thorp, Leach, Robinson, Waddingham, Flack, Howard-Bold, Carney, Cousins, Fender(Moore), Rivers, Howell(Cook.) Unused Subs: Pitcher, Wright, Woodburn.

Lancing 4 v 3 Arundel 23/10/18


Lancing edge Arundel in seven-goal thriller

REPORT COURTESY OF LEWIS MASON ‘WORTHING GAZETTE’ THANK YOU

A superb second-half display saw Lancing come out on top in an SCFL Premier Division thriller with Arundel at Culver Road last night.


Lancing were two goals down at the break but turned things around to run out 4-3 victors.

It proved to be an action-packed evening which started with Mullets taking the lead after 12 minutes.

Returning Arundel striker Ben Gray got it to hand the visitors an early lead.

Daniel Momah got his first of the night seven minutes later to make it 1-1.

 

There was a long stoppage soon after as Lancing goalkeeper was forced off following a nasty collision with an Arundel player. Ben Gray then restored the visitors’ lead ten minutes before the break with Harry Russell making it 3-1 deep in first half stoppage time.

Lancers were left with it all to do but completed a fine turn around after the interval.

Momah bagged his and Lancing’s second of the evening just past the hour, which sparked the home side into life. 

Ex Mullet Brad Lewis levelled things up at 3-3 with 18 minutes left to play and Lancers were now in the ascendancy.

There was still time for Lancing to grab a winner, completing a thrilling turnaround. Matt Daniel netted the winner as Lancers ran out 4-3 winners in what was a thriller.

‘Club Captain – Jordan Dudas’ Review of The Season So Far (October 2018)

Thoughts of how the season has gone as we are ¼ of the way through the league campaign.

This season has opened my eyes to how a young team of all fairly new player have pulled together and knitted as a team and mates on and off the pitch. We have had some great highs as a team during our cup run, but also some lows where we have just missed out of a few wins which could put us up near the top of the table. In summary I think the season is going very well and we are getting close to being where we need to be and deserve to be with the talent we have. Can’t wait to see what happens for the rest of the season when we get some consistency and a run going!

 

​Thoughts on the new additions.

The new additions have been key this year in every way. Freshened up the look and dynamic of the team both on and off the pitch creating more competition and also cover across all positions which is a luxury we haven’t had at the club for a while! More importantly it is keeping the lads on their toes, (even me) as new lads have recently just joined and have made an instant impact!

 

Morale of the camp.

Very positive, we are a close-knit group and stick together both on and off the pitch which is fantastic. I think the boys are starting to realise the potential we could have if we sharpen up on our conduct on the pitch and keep the consistency going! Even on our lower days we stick together and pick ourselves up thanks to certain members of the team …!

 

 Highlights so far

Our cup game against Chertsey Town at Mill Road was a massive high, our third game in and we just smashed it, as a team we were outstanding, absolute credit to all the boys that day who did the club proud.

 

Disappointments

It would sound like there has been more disappointments, but I think that’s me as a person always wanting the best! Our conduct and the amount of suspensions we have picked up has been disappointing and caused us a little bit of disjointedness so far which I think has affected us not converting the draws into wins! Also how we have performed in the local cups, I think as a team we are disappointed as we could have gone far or even all the way in one of these which would have been great for the club!

 

​Hopes for the rest of the season

As our cup runs are over, all focus is on the league now, which is good in a way! I genuinely think if we all stick together and continue to perform and the mentality remains we will push up the table and aim for the top 6! I really hope we can keep all the boys together as both on and off the pitch we stick together as a family which I hope will help us drive on this season through whatever happens

 

Anything else you want to add.

I want to personally thank the gaffa for all his efforts this year on getting new faces into the club! A lot of work has gone in here which we all hope will pay off. Also thank you to the Chairman and all the committee for the ongoing support and commitment to the club with preparing the club at the start of the year and the ongoing maintenance and refurbishment at the club to help continue the great family feel of the club which we all love to play for! I will personally get onto the lads to try and reduce the amount of suspensions we are getting this year.

UP THE MULLETS!!

'Some of the events on Saturday were ludicrous and extremely disappointing' - Arundel boss after seeing two of his men dismissed

 

 Arundel manager Simon Hull was delighted with his side’s 3-2 home win over Eastbourne United, despite having two players sent off.

Hull knew it would be a tough test, and was aware Eastbourne had bought in a dozen new faces this week, some of who had decent pedigree but was focused on what they wanted to do.

The hosts made life difficult for themselves as they went a goal down 10 minutes in with a defensive mix up gifting the visitors the lead, with the goal coming from Charlie Ball.

Arundel were guilty at times after going 1-0 down of a lack of patience and not playing their way in, and were too direct. They addressed that at half time and Hull asked for patience and calmness and to trust their style of football.

Ten minutes in and the home side found an equaliser through Ben Gray as he slotted his penalty past the Eastbourne goalkeeper.

Simon Hull was bemused with some of the referee’s decisions during the game as Daniel Stevens was shown a red card, an hour in.

Six minutes later, Arundel went 2-1 up as Harry Russell rounded the keeper and slotted into the back of the net. Jordan Dudas made it 3-1 in the 71st minute to put Arundel in a good position going into the last 20 minutes. However, Arundel then had their second player sent off this time Ashley Hawkes, Eastbourne also had a player sent off which was connected with the same incident.

Charlie Ball scored his and Eastbourne’s second in the stoppage time, but it wasn’t enough to take any points from the game. 

That result leaves Arundel 14th in the SCFL Premier and will travel to Saltdean United, who are fourth and have only lost one game in the league, on Saturday.

After the game, Simon Hull said: “I’m not one to criticise referees, it’s a difficult job, and the actions of some players and dugouts don’t make the job any easier, we just want consistency in decision making. Some of the events on Saturday were ludicrous and extremely disappointing.

“The big positive is we backed up Saturday’s win against Peacehaven and picked up another valuable three points against Eastbourne United which lifts us up to 14th in the table with a game or two in hand of some sides.”

Arundel 5 v 2 Peacehaven & Telscombe 06/10/18

Report courtesy of Lewis Mason  'Worthing Gazette' Thank you 


Ben Gray's hat-trick seals first league victory for five-star Arundel Action from Arundel's league clash with Peacehaven & Telscombe. 

 Ben Gray hit a hat-trick as Arundel secured a first SCFL Premier Division win of the season at the eighth time of asking on Saturday. As well as Gray’s treble, debutant James Thurgar netted along with frontman Harry Russell to wrap up an emphatic 5-2 victory over Peacehaven & Telscombe at Mill Road. 

 Mullets had failed to win any of their previous seven league outings to start the season and were on the back of a surprise Sussex Senior Cup first round defeat at division-lower Selsey last time out. 

 Arundel boss Simon Hull was less than impressed with the cup exit but was delighted with the response shown as his side served up a five-star display to see off the Magpies. He said: “We had an honest and open chat as a group on Thursday which was really positive. “I can’t praise the boys enough for their attitude and performance against a good Peacehaven side. “The new faces (Jordan Layton from Worthing United) worked tirelessly in the middle of the park and gave us great energy alongside Matt Noble. (James (Thurgar from Pagham) was a constant threat and took his goal very well. The introduction of the new faces, along with (Jordan Farrell), has really lifted the camp and kept everyone on their toes, there is real competition for places now and that really sharpens the minds of the entire squad. “We were clinical, Ben Gray has shown quality and been a threat for us all season. He deserved his hat-trick. Liam Brady is creative and improving week on week while Harry Russell worked tirelessly through the middle for us again.

  “I can’t single anyone out, the back five were magnificent and we’ve been solid at the back all season. “It was a real team performance and everyone was at it for 90 minutes. 

 “We have so much to work on but the willingness is there and the lads will apply themselves. “We have massive potential but we have to make sure we do everything right and look for continuous improvement.” Ben Gray capitalised on a goalkeeping error by Magpies stopper Alieu Secka, making it 1-0 after 25 minutes. Front man Harry Russell doubled Arundel’s lead ten minutes later as they took control. Peacehaven pulled a goal back through Curtis Fordbut a brilliant effort fromBen Gray, his second of the afternoon, restored Mullets’ two-goal advantage minutes before the break. 

 Debutant James Thurgar was impressive and he made it 4-1 three minutes after the restart. Mullets were seemingly cruising but Peacehaven pulled another back when John Elliott struck 20 minutes from time. Impressive Arundel were not about to let the lead slip, though, and Ben Gray struck from the spot two minutes from time - completing his hat-trick - a great day for the home side.

Arundel FC 1 v 2 Selsey FC (Senior Cup R1) 02/10/18

Pictured above - Liam Brady netted in Arundel's Senior Cup loss to Selsey

Report courtesy of ‘Lewis Mason’ Littlehampton Gazette’


Abject' Arundel dumped out of Sussex Senior Cup


Simon Hull says he is going to ring the changes after Arundel’s surprise Sussex Senior Cup exit at division-lower Selsey last night.

Liam Brady’s opener on 35 minutes was cancelled out by strikes from Thomas Jefkins and Dan Bassil – both in the final 30 minutes – as Blues sealed a 2-1 first round victory at The Bunn Leisure Stadium.

Mullets manager Simon Hull pulled no punches in his assessment of his side’s cup defeat.

He said: “It was an abject performance, simply not good enough.

“There were too many passengers and we got what we deserved.  “We let ourselves and the club down and we have to take full responsibility. “I’m expecting a huge reaction on Saturday. New additions to the squad will be a welcomed tonic and should be available for Saturday.

“A few need to have a long, hard look at themselves and show us they should be playing at this level. We are always honest and will work hard to put things right.”

Arundel, still searching for a first SCFL Premier Division win this season, entertain Peacehaven & Telscombe on Saturday.
