HORNDEAN enjoyed a successful week as they picked up two wins in two competitions.

The Deans started their week with a 5-2 win at United Services Portsmouth in the Portsmouth Senior Cup quarter finals last Tuesday night.

Alfie Lis gave Horndean the lead in the 17th minute, and Connor Duffin doubled their advantage on 26 minutes.

George Root pulled a goal back for the hosts in the 36th minute, and Elliott Turnbull made it 2-2 on 66 minutes.

The visitors regained the lead in the 72nd minute through Greg Peel’s goal, and Ben Anderson scored Horndean’s fourth goal on 79 minutes.

Fuzz Kanjanda completed the scoring when he made it 5-2 in the 83rd minute.

Horndean then won 2-0 at Bashley in the Sydenhams Wessex League Premier Division on Saturday afternoon.

Deans manager Michael Birmingham was serving the first match of a two-game stadium ban, but his side still won.

Alfie Lis and Bobby Scott scored the goals which gave the visitors the three points.

“We were excellent in the first half against United Services,” said Birmingham.

“We were 2-0 up, and it could have been three.

“The game then became a bit too easy for us and we let United Services back into the game. Their first goal was a good strike, but the build up was poor by us. We allowed them into the game without them having to work hard.

“We didn’t start the second half well and they made it 2-2, but we then changed to a 4-3-3 formation and it was game over. We scored three goals and could have got more.

“The scoreline flattered them in the end.

“I was banned for the Bashley game, but I’ve heard it was a very well-deserved win. They play the game the right way, but we squeezed them high.”
