Little Common Match Report

Steyning continued their fine early-season form with a thumping win over Little Common on Saturday. Town showed no hangover after the excitement of Tuesday nights nights FA Cup victory against Hadley as they say about the business in a ruthless manner on Saturday and were essentially out of sight at half-time, leading by five goals to nil.

Town were set on their way early on by another goal from young Charlie Meehan who finished well after being slid in. Town added a second as a Remfry charged down middle and finished with a lovely lob, side footing the bouncing ball over the advancing keeper.

Shooman made it three with another cool finish after a flowing stunning move to continue his great goal scoring form.
On 38 minutes, Meehan added a second with another good finish.

Shortly before halftime youngster Towning scored his first goal for Steyning with the pick of the bunch, a lovely curling right foot shot from outside the area, five nil and time for a breather on a uncomfortably hot day.

Scott making his debut in the Steyning goal was dealing with possession well but had little in the way of shots to stop.

Predictably, the second half slowed up somewhat as it was essentially over the contest and the heat was blistering. Town had to wait until the 73rd minute to add a sixth as excellent work down the left from Meehan resulted in a low cross and unselfishly leaving Remfry with a small tap in. There was still time for a seventh as Langford returning from injury swept home with a fine finish.

Right at the end of the game there was time for a Common consolation goal as a fine freekick was struck home from 25 yards and whistled past Scott much to the frustration of Steynings defence.

Overall a fine performance from Town and five out of 5 wins in the league and an undefeated start from the first 11 games.
