The Sussex County League Division One team with a long history were outclassed by a buoyant Hamlet  team who were – as ever – spurred on by their lively set of fans.

Shoreham’s goalie – who seemed to take the afternoon’s drubbing in very good humour – had a very busy afternoon, and he made some decent saves as Hamlet racked up the pressure.

The ball arced high into the air before magically swerving in to the near corner of the goal. The goalkeeper was only able to stand and stare at the wonder goal.

More goals were to come in the final 45 minutes, taking the final score up to 6-0.

Credit has to go to Shoreham who took their defeat with good grace and some humour.
