Managerless Selsey romped to an impressive 3-1 away victory against lacklustre Hailsham in division one of the Sussex League.
The Blues were rocked by the unexpected departure of popular manager Adam Hinshelwood two days before the game but goals from Sean Jenkins, Rob Wimble and James Parsons gave Selsey a much-needed win.
Chariman David Lee was there to watch and was pleased with his team’s performance, saying: “We had a few injuries, so we went there with a slightly depleted squad but everyone acquitted themselves very well.”
Selsey broke the deadlock shortly after the half-hour mark when Jenkins found the net following a strong start from the away side.
The Blues came out quickest again after the restart and top scorer Wimble got on the end of a cross and finished clinically from just outside the box.
Parsons confirmed the win when determined running resulted in a mistake by the Hailsham keeper, allowing him to calmly roll the ball into the open goal.
Hailsham grabbed a consolation five minutes from time when the Selsey defence failed to clear a corner and Tom Porter was allowed an easy finish.
Selsey host Shoreham this weekend with a new manager not due in place until next week.
