Heath Exit The Velocity Trophy

A second cup exit in 10 days for the Blues.

Haywards Heath Town were knocked out of the Velocity Trophy by Horsham in a 5-2 defeat at Hanbury Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Byron Napper made his first start for Heath in place of the absent Kane Louis in the only change for the Blues following their 1-0 loss at home to VCD Athletic at the weekend. The returning Scott Chamberlain - Heath's player of the year - was named among the substitutes.

Horsham took the lead in the eighth minute through former Heath striker Rob O'Toole before the Hornets doubled their lead in 24th minute courtesy of Tyrell Richardson-Brown. Two quickly became three as George Landais added his name to the score sheet before Heath were handed a lifeline as Daryl Coleman put through his own net a minute later.

Manager Shaun Saunders made two changes early in the second half with Dan Perry and captain Naz Rouane being replaced by Patrick Akwasi and Scott Chamberlain.

The changes failed to stem the breaches of the Heath net as Steve Metcalf made it 4-1 after 64 minutes.

Karly Akehurst reduced the deficit in the 85th minute, but any chance of an unlikely comeback was extinguished three minutes later by Hornets' substitute Chris Smith.

Final Score - Haywards Heath Town 2 Horsham 5

The defeat was the Blues' third in a row, the first time that this has happened in Shaun Saunders' reign as manager going back to August 2015 and is also the first time that they've conceded five during this period.

Heath have a chance to avenge the defeat in just 6 days time as they face the Hornets in league action on Bank Holiday Monday at Culver Road, Lancing.
