STEYNING TOWN Football Club cruised into the second round of the Sussex Senior Cup with a five-star show against Selsey on Tuesday evening.

Town led 2-0 at half-time against their fellow Southern Combination League Division 1 side, before they struck three more times in the second period.

Lewis Levoi gave Steyning the lead after just five minutes, before he made it 2-0 ten minutes before half-time with his seventh goal of the season.

Rob Clark got the third just past the hour and then netted his second and eighth of the season on 82 minutes.

Joe Assefi then completed the scoring six minutes from time.

Steyning will entertain division-higher Hassocks in the next round.

Town are back in league action on Saturday when they travel to local rivals Mile Oak.

Steyning boss Alan Skipper was delighted with the win and said: “To be fair apart from Sidlesham we have been playing well all season and most certainly of late.

“The last three performances have been superb, though, we now head into two very tough games away to Mile Oak and at home to Horsham in the Vase. “Both sides will need to be given total respect as they are both decent outfits.

“I am really pleased with our lads, their commitment and attitudes have been superb all season.

“We are really starting to see the players hard work come to fruit.”
