Robins’ surge just can’t rock the Rocks


The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By James Bar­rett

BOGNOR REGIS with­stood a late Robins on­slaught at Col­ston Av­enue to main­tain their un­beaten record.

The game started evenly but the first chance fell to the home side as Mike Dixon’s shot was de­flected just wide, while the Rocks’ Doug Tuck failed to put the fin­ish­ing touch to a free-kick rou­tine.

But Car­shal­ton’s Jor­dan Chea­dle broke the dead­lock on 27 min­utes as he blasted the ball be­yond Rocks keeper Dan Lin­coln from 25 yards.

Bognor equalised on the stroke of half-time through Jimmy Muitt, his sixth goal of the sea­son.

The vis­i­tors be­gan the sec­ond­half brightly but Calvin Davies had an ef­fort cleared off the line and Har­vey Whyte had a goal dis­al­lowed for off­side.

And the last 20 min­utes be­longed to the Robins. Tommy Brad­ford fizzed an ef­fort just wide, then was un­able to poke home from close range as a strike by Dixon rolled across goal.

Their best chance of the fi­nal quar­ter fell to Robins cap­tain Paris Hamil­ton-Downes, who met a cor­ner from three yards only for his header to fly over.

Chea­dle also tried his luck from dis­tance twice in added time but Lin­coln en­sured his side left with a point.

STAR MAN: Jor­dan Chea­dle (Car­shal­ton Ath­letic) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
