Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Round-Up

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

In excess of 250 people were at the Portway Stadium on Saturday to see a superb game between two evenly-matched sides in the Sydenhams Football League (Wessex) Premier that eventually went the way of Andover Town with George Hallahan scoring twice in their 5-3 victory over Blackfield & Langley.

Both clubs, both sides and the match officials all played their part on an afternoon which was a credit to all and to the league.

The result leaves Blackfield still heading the table but only on goal difference.

Byron Mason scored twice as Sholing maintained their third place with a 4-0 win at Bemerton Heath Harlequinsm, whilst Horndean climbed to fourth, Tylor Moret’s goal giving them the edge over Hamble Club who were defeated in the league for the first time since August.

AFC Portchester are now fifth with their victory at Hamworthy United – their sixth in their last seven games – two more goals for Bobby Scott – with the Dorset club now slipping down the table after an impressive start to the season.

Lymington Town perhaps dropped two points in a goalless draw at Petersfield Town, although it was a good point for the home side, while Baffins Milton Rovers suffered probably their biggest loss since joining the league in going down 6-0 at home to Portland United, for whom Lewis Clarke scored four.

Fareham Town continued their revival with a 5-2 win at Bashley – two for Curt Robbins – as the home side failed to build on their midweek victory and Alresford Town came out on top at Bournemouth FC by the odd goal in three.

Two more four-goal men in the last two matches in the Premier Division – Martin Schroeder for Shaftesbury and Hisham Kasimu for Team Solent.

Shaftesbury inflicted Newport IoW’s fifth defeat in a row – 5-0 – to leave the Islanders now only one place off the bottom of the table, while Team Solent went even better with a seven-goal demolition of Brockenhurst.

The New Forest side have now won six and lost seven of their league fixtures to date and are almost the epitome of inconsistency.
