With Horsham already three goals up in the bank holiday weekend sunshine, some of those that attended the clash between the two non-league sides are said to have participated in an impromptu 400m dash at the interval.

Making full use of the athletics facilities at the multi-purpose ground, there was also a long jump competition and you can see one competitor’s attempt in the clip released by the club on social media.
