Aldrington Falcons striker Shane Brown failed to score for his Sunday side even though they won 13-0.

Marksman Brown was ribbed mercilessly by his team-mates after firing a stream of duds in Falcons' Sussex Sunday League Division Two clash with Martha Gunn.

Even substitute Jonathan Beattie scored and the left back got a hat-trick, but Brown endured a frustrating afternoon as he hit the crossbar and saw Theo Christian in the Martha goal make a string of saves.

The 21-year-old striker said: "It was a nightmare and the lads certainly haven't let me forget about it.

"I have had lots of stick off them. I had over ten chances, I hit the target every time but I was very unlucky."

Brown, who used to play County League youth football for Lewes, was a midfielder and it is only now, after a two-year break from the game, he is playing up front.

He said: "I am better at creating chances because I used to play in midfield. Before that game they were all calling me Emile Heskey but now it is Ade Akinbiyi."

Brown, with four goals from seven appearances this season, was denied by the woodwork twice.

But what really angered the young forward was when a team-mate elected to shoot rather than pass to him, even though Brown had an open goal.

He added: "Manager Gary Wilson shot over when he could have played the ball to me for a tap-in. We had a bit of an argument about it."

There is a case of London Pride waiting for him at our offices in Hollingbury to share with Wilson. as they patch up their differences.
