Horsham FC manager ‘will fight to the end’

Football, by Andy Robinson –

Relegation-threatened Horsham extended their winless run to 14 games despite a battling performance against one of the division’s leading lights.

Second-placed Dulwich Hamlet blew away the Hornets in the second half after an encouraging opening period for the hosts.

Horsham manager Simon Colbran was full of praise for the visitors and was left feeling positive despite the 4-1 home defeat.

He told The District Post: “Dulwich are an excellent side and have some quality players. I thought we were the better side in the first half after we got settled and performances like this make me believe we’ll get out of this.

“No one expected us to win tonight (Tuesday) and we haven’t let ourselves down.

“I feel for the supporters, but I’m going to fight until the end. We need everyone to pull together. There’s no way I’m going to let this club go down – I’d be devastated.

“I love this club and I can’t let down the owners for the faith they’ve shown in me.”
