Steyning Town boss Kev Green has described his side’s win over Albion’s youngsters as “a bit of an emotional night”.

The Southern Combination outfit enjoyed a memorable 2-1 success in the Sussex Transport Senior Cup.

A crowd of 702, about four times the usual turnout, saw fine goals from Joe Radley-Martin and Harry Shooman before Luca Barrington pulled one back.

Green said: “The boys did well against a very good side who were well-drilled and professional and moved the ball well.

“We were just as organised and kept the ball very well in spells and took our chances when they came.”

Steyning’s pitch used to be a notorious, undulating mix of mud and clay but an artificial surface has changed all that and the club as a whole is thriving.

Green said: “We try and get the ball down.

“This was probably the first game this season where we didn’t have loads of the ball but where we were very good was at being compact and pressing when we needed to.

“The facilities here are great and the club has been waiting to take off: “We are quite central to Brighton, Worthing and Horsham.

“Hopefully this is another step in the right direction.”
