Corinthian-Casuals extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a comfortable 2-0 victory over bottom-placed side Shoreham in the Bostik League South.

Casuals opened the scoring via Max Oldham, who tapped in a cross at the far post after 20 minutes. Despite dominant play, they had to wait another half hour before adding a second – Jordan Clarke finding the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Clarke had a golden chance to add to the scoreline and Casuals squandered a number of chances whilst never truly threatened by the Sussex side.

The win is the fourth consecutive league clean sheet kept by James Bracken’s side who’ve only conceded twice in the last seven matches. Casuals sit second in the table, two points behind early leaders Lewes.

“That could’ve been more today for sure,” said Bracken following the win.

“We hit the post, squandered a few opportunities and not found the killer pass probably more often than I’d have liked. Saying that, 2-0 up after the 5-0 win on Tuesday along with the good away win at Faversham caps off a decent week.

“We freshened the team up a little. I said in the changing room that it’s about me showing faith in everyone and believing everybody is good enough to play and get points. It’s pleasing we can do that. It helps save tired legs and allows others vital minutes to improve their match fitness.

“It’s not just about winning games. Over the course of a season, I have to deal with 22 people that want to play football and today, we were able to give a few more an opportunity. They repaid it with another three points and a clean sheet.

And Bracken spoke of the desire to win in all competitions.

“I said at the start of the season, I’m taking every competition seriously. I know all managers say that and then put out a youth side.

“I’ll always put out a side that is capable of winning and with the squad we have, I can put out an eleven for one match and a totally different eleven that would be capable of finishing in the top six of the Bostik League.

“We have enough players, so we’ll be taking every competition seriously – the London Senior Cup, the Surrey Senior Cup, League Cup.

“I want to win the league, but if we get promotion and a trophy, then that’s acceptable. I don’t just want to get promoted – I want to win something. I’d like the club to have a trophy in the clubhouse, that when my time is done, they look on the wall and see that we won something. I want to leave that mark.”

Casuals face AFC Dunstable at King George’s Arena, Tolworth in the FA Trophy on Saturday.

Casuals had mixed fortunes during the week losing 2-0 at Greenwich Borough but winning 5-1 against Welling United in the London Senior Cup.

Ben Cheklit scored twice while Amari Hibbert Delgardo, Max Oldham and Mu Maan also found the target.
