Hungerford Town 2-1 Sholing

It was another narrow defeat, but the Boatmen can't complain too much about this one after a poor first half where Ryan Gosney stood between us and a hammering.  The home side went ahead on 10 mins, when a penalty was awarded, Gosney made a brilliant save, but the ball was put back in for a header to find the net.  Hesketh had a shot tipped round the post, but it was one way traffic and on 26 mins, a linesman's flag never came and a cross was swept home.  Gos made 5 great saves either side of half time, but when Hungerford had a player sent off on 67 mins, we were thrown a lifeline.  Dan Mason headed against the post and then scored with 5 mins to go with a brilliant control and volley finish, but we couldn't force a draw - Match Report

Sholing 0-1 Chesham United

Boatmen deserved something from a closely fought game against runaway leaders, Chesham United, but once again came away with nothing to show for a good performance.  Sholing dominated the first half, Roundell skimmed the bar with a header and Davis put a freekick narrowly over.  Chesham stepped it up in the 2nd half, scoring on 54 mins when a shot hit the post, but the rebound was put in.  We had a strong shout for penalty when Marv was taken down from behind, but ref said no.  Visitors were denied by the post and a world class save by Gosney on his 400th appearance and our best chance to equalise saw Byron volley over late on - Match Report

Sholing 0-1 Walton & Hersham

Boatmen were unlucky to slip to defeat on an atrocious night, weather wise.  In 50mph winds and driving rain, both sides played decent football all things considered.  The visiting keeper kept us at bay in the first half with 5 good saves and luck was against us when Walton took the lead with a heavily deflected shot.  In the second half, we didn't create enough to force an equaliser, with Walton putting a penalty against the bar - Match Report

Sholing 0-0 Beaconsfield Town

Boatmen got a clean sheet and a point from a goalless encounter with Beaconsfield.  A mostly scrappy first half saw little goalmouth action, but there was more after the restart, with Sholing edging the chances as MacAllister, Wort & Chalwell went close.  However, we needed a fantastic save by Gosney and some good defending to ensure the game ended all square - Match Report

Salisbury 3-0 Sholing

Boatmen were defeated by 2nd place Salisbury, but that wasn't the whole story of the game.  The home side took a deserved lead with a superb strike from the edge of the box and doubled their lead on 26 mins. Then a 10 minute spell of decisions going against Sholing as Luka was hauled down by the last defender, but only a yellow was shown.  Brad was tripped in the box, but no penalty given and a late challenge by Keane Anderson, which didn't look wild or high, received a straight red.  Salisbury rubbed salt into the wound to grab a third in first time stoppage time.  The second half was a non-event, but the 10 men of Sholing worked hard for each other to stop anymore goals going in and kept their discipline - Match Report

Sholing 5-1 Winchester City

Five Star Sholing put in another impressive performance to win the local derby by thrashing in-form Winchester City.  Sholing took the lead on 16 mins when Marv's deep cross was headed by Brad Targett for Dan Mason to put his head in where it hurts to score. It was one way traffic for most the first half and we extended our lead with yet another Charlie Davis corner, this one headed back by Brad for Luka Chalwell to glance in.  Another Davis set piece saw his freekick into the box met with a perfectly placed header by Brad Targett.  Winchester put us under pressure after the restart, but we made sure of the win on 63 mins when Dan Mason's flick on was well controlled by Alex MacAllister, who finished with aplomb for his first goal for the club. Winchester scored a penalty soon after, but the icing on the cake came in stoppage time when Brad Targett burst past two defenders, found Dan Mason in the area to control, turn and fire into the bottom corner as the Boatmen moved into the top 10 - Match Report

AFC Totton 1-3 Sholing

A hat-trick of goals from Charlie Davis corners, gave the Boatmen local bragging rights and more importantly, a big three points over Totton.  A brace from Dan Mason took him beyond Lee Wort and onto 284 goals to become Sholing's all time record goalscorer.  Sholing were the better side in the first half and went close several times to scoring.  We got the breakthrough on 48 minutes when Charlie's right side corner was met with a downward header by Dan Mason.  Totton were level thanks to a penalty which Rendell converted.  Boatmen retook the lead on 73 mins with the same routine, Davis corner, this time powerfully headed home by Dan Mason.  It became a hat-trick of assists for former Totton player Davis on 83 mins, this time Byron Mason powering in an unstoppable header for a memorable win - Match Report
