TWO away wins – two clean sheets.

Selsey boss Adam Hinshelwood could hardly have asked for more from his troops over the past week as they won 4-0 at Worthing United and 1-0 at Selsey.

The two victories have lifted them to ninth in the table – and they’re only two points behind third-placed Arundel, who they deservedly defeat on Tuesday night.

At Worthing, ex-Ryman League premier-division player Lee Carey helped Selsey record a big victory as they beat nine-man Worthing.

The Blues were knocked out of the FA Vase by Littlehampton last week but recovered with a convincing display that moved them back into the middle of the table.

Manager Adam Hinshelwood was pleased with the result and praised the contribution of former Hastings stalwart Carey.

He said: “Having Lee on board really helped, he has a lot of experience and made an immediate impact.

“It was a good performance by the team and every player played their part.”

The Blues took the lead just before half-time when Carey put in a delightful cross to Omar Bugiel, who headed home from short range.

Worthing were reduced to ten men shortly after the restart and the Blues took full advantage grabbing a further two goals.

Red mist descended once again in the Worthing camp and they were further reduced to nine men before Selsey landed the final blow.

Rob Wimble (2) and Matt Wood were the second-half scorers.

Wood was on target again at Mill Road, scoring the only goal midway through the second half.

Keeper Sam Joyce then kept out Scott Tipper’s penalty.
