The best way to keep up to date with AFC Sudbury


First-Half Goals See AFC Home

1 month ago By Tony Simpson

Horne Double Does It

At a wet King's Marsh AFC defeated Barking to remain in fourteenth place in the Bostik North table.

Three first-half goals were enough to see AFC gain the three points and although a second-half penalty changed the scoreline the home side took the spoils to avenge an earlier away defeat.

Two goals in the first twelve minutes both scored by the recently re-signed Ryan Horne (pictured) set AFC on their way. The first came from a Max Booth run and pass the second saw the Sudbury midfielder beat ex-AFC keeper Ollie Bowles to score. A penalty put away by Captain Joe Whight just after the half hour mark was enough to go in with a commanding lead. An although a penalty ten minutes from time was conceded in the second period to stop a clean sheet, Manager Mark Morsley was delighted with the victory.

AFC now look forward to Tuesday evening and an away fixture at Maldon and Tiptree.
