The Non-League Football Paper - - FA VASE 2ND ROUND - By Andy Davies

SUT­TON Com­mon Rovers marched into the next round on Fri­day night with a su­perb win over sorry league ri­vals Horley Town.

It was the vis­i­tors who took the lead af­ter just three min­utes when Ay­den Richards cap­i­talised on a loose ball to fire home the opener.

Sut­ton hit back in the 23rd minute as Mar­lon Pin­der scored his first goal for the club, smash­ing a fierce strike in off the post.

The home side then took the lead be­fore half­time af­ter Ne­set Bel­likli’s pin­point cor­ner was met by the div­ing header of Guy Baskerville.

At half-time the game was still in the bal­ance but just seven min­utes af­ter the break, Sut­ton had made it 3-1 when Ol­lie Twum fired in at the near post.

Soon af­ter, Bel­likli laid on an­other goal, this time for Jeff Ad­duDankwa to head in.

On the hour, Sut­ton made it five. This time Twum crossed and Matt Tan­ton’s ef­fort took a de­flec­tion past goal­keeper Ge­orge Hyde.

And Sut­ton’s stun­ning start to the sec­ond half was com­pleted in the 64th minute when sub­sti­tute Phil Page net­ted the sixth with an­other de­flected shot, the fourth goal to come into the first 20 min­utes of the half.

Poor Horley had no an­swer to the re­sponse as they slipped out.
