WCFC started the 2016-2017 season with an entertaining 5-2 win against Petworth FC. West Chiltington welcomed back Daniel Clayton to the club and he put in an excellent performance.
The game started poorly for West Chiltington with Petworth taking a 1-0 lead after 15 minutes. Zack Sanderson produced a wonder strike from 25 yards to equalise and Matthew Langley finished superbly after striding forward from the defence to put West Chiltington 2-1 up at half time. Sanderson scored again to make it 3-1 after 55 minutes, however Petworth pulled one back shortly afterwards to make it 3-2. Chilt continued to create chances and were soon 5-2 up after goals from Clayton and Sanderson. Man of the match went to Zack Sanderson who produced an outstanding performance and scored a hat trick of good goals.
A good start to the season and Chilt will be looking for another win when they face a tough encounter away at Lavant on Saturday 10th September
