Sholing 1-1 Bideford

Boatmen stretched our unbeaten run to 9 games, but missed a good opportunity to close up on the top 3.  A bright start was rewarded on 10 minutes when Stu Green was played in behind and he drilled the ball through the keeper's legs.  Then we stopped doing what was working and let Bideford back into the match and they equalised a minute into the second half through Simpson.  Earlier Dan Mason had a shot very well saved, but we couldn't muster another effort on target in a frustrating match - Match Report

Lymington Town 2-5 Sholing

A blistering opening 15 minutes by the Boatmen saw us race into a 3 nil lead and go on to win emphatically. On 3 mins, Dan Mason linked up well with Stu Green to drill home, then on 7 mins, Sami Makhloufi showed more clinical finishing, firing low inside the near post from 18 yards.  We then were treated to two brilliant goals by Owen Roundell. On 15 mins, a cleareance dropped to him 25 yards out & he blasted it in via the underside of the bar!   Then on 41 mins, Owzie arrived in the box to hit a left foot volley into the top corner to put us 4 up at half time.   Lymington got 2 goals back after the break to make it interesting, but Dan Mason doubled his account on 65 mins from close range to kill off any outside chances of a home side comeback as Sholing move back up to 4th in an increasingly tight top of the table - Match Report

Highworth Town 1-1 Sholing

Boatmen kept the unbeaten run going, but missed out on closing the gap on the league leader after squandering a host of chances.  Was nearly all Sholing for the first half, with Brad Targett not taking a couple of opportunites when in on goal.  It was goalless at half time, but Highworth took the lead straight after the restart via a softly conceded penalty.  Dan Mason was denied by a great save before Brad Targett equalised on 62 mins when he smashed high into the net at the near post.  Sholing laid seige to the home side's goal in the final few minutes, with Brad missing a great chance to win it and then the keeper pulled off a remarkable save to deny Hoole as the game ended level - Match Report

Sholing 2-1 Bristol Manor Farm

Boatmen dug in deep to claim our 5th win in a row and move up to 2nd in the league.  In a game where Manor Farm created as many chances as any side has against us this season, Sholing were often on the back foot, but took the lead on 32 when Targett was fouled for a penalty, that saw Dan Mason's spot kick saved, but Sami Makhloufi followed up to score his first for the club.  In the second half Nicholls & Roundell went close before Conor Whiteley steered in an excellent first time shot into the far corner from 20 yards.  Bristol got a goal back and we had to withstand a lot of pressure, but the defence held firm and we continue our fine recent run - Match Report
