Swindon Supermarine goalkeeper refused to reveal his system for saving penalties but admitted he was delighted to have played his part in the club’s FA Trophy success against Carshalton Athletic.

Horsell, who celebrated his birthday this week, saved three penalties as Supermarine beat Carshalton 5-4 in the shootout.

Neither side managed to score in 90 minutes as defences and goalkeepers were on top during the game and with no extra time, the tie had to be decided by a penalty shootout.

Horsell saved the first two penalties to give Supermarine the edge in the shootout but two misses from the hosts ensured it was a nervy finish for the home faithful.

And Horsell admitted he feared the momentum had shifted to the visitors, saying: “It was good to get the momentum and get those two saves.

“I was fearful as soon as the momentum changed and we missed two it tilted the other way but fortunately the lads stepped up and buried the next two penalties and then I did my bit.

“Got to be honest it looked like a nil-nil game. It could have gone either way. They are a tidy team.

“I’ve got a system, every goalie should have a system. It is certainly a calculated decision, not a guess.

“It’s good for the club, through to the next stage. Bring on our opponents.”

Marine will now face the winners of Bath City versus Chelmsford City.
