Horndean closed the gap on the top four in Wessex League division one with a routine 3-0 win over Amesbury at Five Heads Park.

Torr Spicer, Aaron Fennemore and Gary Austin got the goals.

‘All the other results went for us so we have now reined the top sides in,’ said Horndean joint-manager Dave Carter.

‘If we beat Fleet Spurs in midweek we can go third, and the aim is to be in the top two by the end of the month.

‘It was comfortable against Amesbury.

‘I freshened things up a bit because one or two players have looked a bit leg-weary and it shows the depth we have in the squad.’

Austin has scored three goals in three games but it could be more.

The attacker tripped over his own feet in front of an open goal, after rounding the keeper.

Petersfield Town boss Matt Short was disappointed with his sides’ 1-1 draw at Stockbridge.

‘We started slowly and fell behind but levelled the scores at the start of the second half,’ said Short.

‘I was disappointed we didn’t go on and win the game from there.’

Mike Newman equalised 10 minutes into the second period, after he ran on to a through ball from Luke Bishop.
