Borough brush aside Horsham in first pre-season win

Eastbourne Borough put last Saturday’s pre-season defeat to Hythe Town behind them with a comprehensive 4-0 win away at Horsham yesterday evening.

Lawrence Yiga opened the scoring for the Sports with the only goal in the first half. Mark Nwokeji doubled the cushion after the break before an own goal gave Borough a firm lead.

The victory was sealed as Darren Lok slotted home the fourth ten minutes from time.

Tommy Widdrington’s side will travel to Whitehawk on Friday night for their next pre-season friendly before hosting AFC Wimbledon at Priory Lane on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Whitehawk came away 1-0 victors after their pre-season fixture with Eastbourne Town at the Saffrons last night.
