Horsley 1st Team Win League & Treble!!!
Horsley 4; Warlingham 3
In a tense, nail biting final league match at Horsley FC today the 1st team managed a win to secure the Surrey Intermediate Elite League title and an amazing treble having already won the Surrey Elite Intermediate Football League Cup and The Surrey FA Intermediate County Cup.
Horsley took a two nil lead with goals from Tom Henzi and Tariq Sidoui and looked comfortable but Warlingham chasing a win themselves to get out of the bottom two drew level before half-time.
The visitors started the second half better with Horsley looking a little nervous and hesitant on the ball and they took a 3-2 lead after about 15 minutes. Horsley rallied and pushed for the equaliser which would give them the title but Warlingham frustrated them and held firm. Then with about 15 minutes to go, skipper Mark Farr found himself unmarked at the back post on the end of a good cross and slotted the ball home to make the score 3-3.
The remainder of the match was nail-biting for players, manager, coaches and supporters until Sam Wright latched on to a poor pass across the defence outside the box and with the Warlingham keeper stranded put the game beyond doubt with the home teams 4th, securing a win to give Horsley the league title and a magical treble.
Congratulations to manager Gary Millar, his coaching staff and of course all the players for the completion of a fantastic season.
