First Team Squad A-Z Profiles :

Max Bustamante -  A young striker from Chile, who represented his country at Youth Levels before moving to England. After spells at Barnet & Stevenage, last season Max played for Berkhamsted where he was their leading scorer and supporters player of the season. Joined the Boatmen ahead of studying at Southampton University

Dan Fitchett -  Experienced forward who was a big fans favourite at Salisbury, where he spent a large part of his career.  A handful for defenders with a great workrate, he also had spells at Aldershot and under Dos' at Sutton United

Jake Flannigan -  Former Southampton player "Flan" can play either in defence or midfield.  Was on loan at Burton Albion with Jake Hesketh, before being released by Saints.  Later joined Havant & Waterlooville and most recently played at Step 3 at Bognor Regis

Charlie Gunson -  Joined the Boatmen after gaining promotion with Salisbury last season. A goal scoring all action midfielder, who has also played for Dorchester, Totton & Wimborne

Jake Hesketh -  Still only 27, "Hesk" played in an UEFA Cup tie for Saints and has also played professional football at Burton Albion, MK Dons and Lincoln City.  His spell at Eastleigh came to an end and Sholing beat a host of clubs to his signing.

Byron Mason - "By" recently played his 700th game for the Boatmen and has done it all for the club, lifting over a dozen trophies, including the FA Vase in 2014.  A natural leader, the beating heart of the side for over a decade as Captain.

Dan Mason - "D-Dan" youngest of the Mason brothers.  Recently became the club's all time leading scorer when he moved above Worty's 283 goals.  Loves a spectacular finish.  A real handful for any defender, sets up as many goals as he scores.

Marvin McLean - Became the club record appearance holder when he surprassed 650 appearances in August 2019 and is now approaching 800!  "Marv" famously scored the winning goal at Wembley in the FA Vase in 2014.  Spent most his Sholing career as a left winger, but moved to left back/wing back and excelled in those positions, still beating defenders for pace.

Dan Miller - "Millsy" is a dominant centre half, who came through the youth system to break through into the first team at just 18 years old. Despite playing over 400 times, has only been booked a handful of times. As the Sholing fans like to sing... "you'll never beat Dan Miller"

Frankie Monk -  A young exciting pacy winger who started in the West Brom Academy before joining Weymouth. Had loan spells at Bashley & Poole, before being snapped up by Sholing

Benny Read -  A classy right back who has lots of experience playing at this level and higher, with Havant & Waterlooville and most recently, AFC Totton.  The 26 year old is another quality signing for Sholing

Owen Roundell -  Came through the Sholing youth system and has made 300 appearances for the Boatmen.  Versatile player "Owzie" can play centre back or holding midfield and was the supporters player of the season in 2023/24 after a number of impressive performances

Billy Stedman - Signed from Bracknell Town, the winger/attacking midfielder started his career at Coventry City before playing in both Iceland & Northern Ireland

Brad Targett -  Blessed with pace and finishing ability and scored a last gasp winner in the 2019 Russell Cotes Cup Final. As well as up front, "Bradders" can play as a wing back on either flank and loves a long range strike.

Harry Taylor -  Started with Aldershot Town where he worked with Sholing first team coach, Ross White, before signing pro-forms with Charlton Athletic. More recently, the defensive midfielder who can also play CB & RB, was playing in Canada

Ross Worner -  Sholing beat a host of clubs to the signing of one of the best keepers in Non League. Ross started at Woking and played in League 2 for Wimbledon.  He linked up with Dos for a successful spell at Sutton which included being named the National League keeper of the season in 2015/16 before later joining Havant & Waterlooville

Lee Wort - "Boozer" returned home from Portchester in January 2024 to continue his amazing goalscoring partnership with Dan Mason that currently numbers 569 goals between the pair
