Barnham Trojans 1 Chichester City Colts 1

CITY travelled to reigning champions Barnham Trojans, knowing the task was going to be tough. Barnham had won their previous 14 consecutive league and cup home encounters spanning back 18 months.

In the early exchanges the battle was evenly contested, but Colts took the lead on 17 minutes when Sam Jones played in Toby Evans, who dispatched the ball past the Barnham keeper.

One nearly became two when Toby Watkins ghosted in at the back post but his effort was comfortably saved.

Barnham responded in the closing minutes of the first half when Britton played in Brady who slotted past Sam Williams.

The second half was just as even, but Taylor Parker could have snatched a lead for Colts but he mis-hit his effort when set up by Evans with the ball falling into the Barnham keeper’s arms.

Williams was the busier keeper making several important saves to ensure his team shared the points.

MoM was Williams, who pulled off a number of important saves.

Colts and Trojans battle is out again in the Invitation Cup final at Arundel FC on Sunday, March 6.

fine strike.

White completed his hat-trick but Worthing played their part in an entertaining game.
