Away league match played on 29 September 2012.
Kicked off at 2:30 PM

Real came into this game with their heads held high from last week’s performance, it would be a tough ask for the players but everyone seemed confident.

The manager went 4-5-1 with Cheese dropping to left mid, and Alfie starting up front alone.

Sompting started well seeing a lot of the ball, putting pressure on the defence from the off

On 18minutes Sompting were rewarded a throw in, the defence didn’t deal with it and the ball was flicked on leaving the keeper on his own vs 2 strikers 1-0 Sompting

Heads didn’t drop, Real trying to get back into the game passing the ball round.

On 27minutes the ball was played over the defences heads, linesman missing the offside                   2-0 Sompting.

On 35minutes Sompting were rewarded a corner after some good play, ball played into the box and flapped at by the keeper leaving a striker to poke it into the net 3-0 Sompting.

It wasn’t a bad half from real, played some good football but the defending was poor all round as the goals could have been avoided.

Half Time 3-0

Change made from the manager at half time, Kier on for the injured Alfie

Both teams started the half well, both seeing a lot of the ball

On 50minutes Josh took a goal kick going straight to the Sompting striker no one reacted 4-0 Sompting.

Reals heads started to drop, tried getting back into the game but Sompting just piling on the pressure.

On 55minutes Sompting got a freekick on the edge of the box, clipped the wall landing in the bottom corner 5-0 Sompting.

On 62minutes Josh gave away a penalty, Sompting player blasting the ball over the bar..a big let off!

Sompting carried on attacking, keeping Real on the back foot

On 69minutes the ball was played through to the striker, Reals poor defending again leaving the score 6-0

Manager making another change, Dave on for Andy

Real continued to try and get back into the game, Anton trying to create chances for the strikers

85minutes Dan D off for Hurst

On 90minutes the linesman missing another offside, Real stood and watched as Sompting scored the 7th

Final score Sompting 7-0 Real Rustington

Manager: played well in places, a hard task against last seasons champions. A few of us didn’t have our best game and against a team like Sompting you’ll always get found out. At least we kept going and stayed together as a team, we have a few more games like this to contend with so hopefully we can learn from our mistakes and improve throughout the season.
