Highworth Town 1-3 Sholing
Boatmen put in a top class performance to defeat Highworth, who previously had won 14 games in a row and top the Hellenic League. On a very blustery day with the wind at our backs, the first half was scrappy, but Sholing were the better team, strong in defence and the home side were fortunate just before half time when their keeper clattered into Dan Mason, but nothing was given. Playing into the wind, Sholing started the 2nd half strongly and on 50 mins, TJ Cuthbertson drilled in a 25 yard shot inside the near post. It was quickly 2-0 when Lee Wort went through with the ball falling to Dan Mason to slot past a stranded keeper. On 75 mins, it was game over as Lee Wort ran clear and finished through the keepers legs. There were two Red cards late on after a melee, with Pete Castle getting sent off along with a Highworth player. Home side got a consolation in added time, but it was Sholing's day and just rewards for a excellent team performance to progress in the FA Vase - Match Report, Photos & Videos
Sholing 7-0 Folland Sports
A much changed Sholing side were still too strong for the Planemakers and romped to a big win. For the second game running, Kev Brewster had a hat-trick of assists and also grabbed himself a goal from the Penalty spot. Also pleasing for the Boatmen were good first team debuts by a number of youngsters and two of them, Rory Wood (2) & Harry Butler got on the scoresheet. Remarkable that Butler & 2 other lads were playing 24 hours after their epic Youth Cup game. Byron Mason grabbed another brace and Jack Attrill got the other goal in a very one-sided Cup tie - Match Report & Video
Sholing U18's win at Aldershot in Youth Cup
The young boatmen had yet another incredible game in the FA Youth Cup to again, win on penalties. All the more impressive as they defeated Aldershot Town U18's, a club much higher in the football ladder than ourselves. Sholing twice came from behind, Connor Pearson equalised in the 2nd half to send it to extra time. In the second period of extra time, Sholing again equalised, this time through Harry Butler. As in the last round, Aaron Whitmarsh saved a couple of pens and Harvey Wright scored the winning spot kick to send the Boatmen through to the 1st Round Proper of the FA Youth Cup. Brilliant achievement, well done to all the lads, coaches & parents - Match Report, Video & Photos
Bemerton Heath 0-4 Sholing
Boatmen laid the hoodoo of recent results at Bemerton with an emphatic win, a lot of it down to the set-piece delivery of Kev Brewster. Brewy had assists on 3 of the goals, all from corners and was even involved in the other goal as well. On 32 mins, Byron Mason headed in a corner at the far post. The lead was doubled on 39 mins as TJ met Brewy's corner with a thumping 8 yard header. On 52 mins, Brewy's cross into the box was chested by Marlon into the path of Dan Mason, who smashed an 18 yard shot into the bottom corner. Brewy's hat-trick of assists came on 71 mins, as Byron Mason got a flick header from the corner to make it 5 wins in a row - Match Report & Video
Ringwood Town 0-2 Sholing
Dan Mason continued his goalscoring form with a second half brace as Sholing progressed in the League Cup. After a quiet first half, on 49 minutes a deep cross by Kev Brewster was headed back past the keeper by D-Dan. It was almost a carbon copy on 54 mins, as once again, Brewy's perfect delivery found D-Dan to knock over the line from 6 yards. Sadly, and to the confusion of everyone watching, Marv was shown a straight red after a little bit of handbags following a late tackle on Lee Wort. Sholing saw out the final 30 mins with 10 men and will be at home to Petersfield Town in the next Round - Match Report
