Sholing 7-0 Newport IW
Boatmen created chances for fun and took 7 of them in a very one sided Hampshire Senior Cup tie. Dan Miller started the rout in the 3rd minute, scoring from a corner. Sholing's 2nd goal on 21 mins also came from a corner kick as Roundell headed back for Dan Mason to sweep in. It was soon 3 as TJ Cuthbertson scored the goal of the game, smashing in from 25 yards via the underside of the bar. Bradley Targett got the 4th on 35 mins, snapping up a rebound from the keeper's save. Dan Mason got his brace on 53 as he controlled and volleyed in his 14th of the season before making way for Lee Wort, who was eager to get on the scoresheet and he duly did, grabbing 2 goals in the last 10 mins to take his tally to 11 goals, firstly drilling in from 12 yards before a cheeky nod past the keeper to round off the scoring on a night when the Boatmen were far too strong for the visitors - Match Report & Photos

Hamworthy United 0-1 Sholing
An excellent performance by the Boatmen earned them a trip to Slough Town in the 2nd Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. In many ways, it was a very similar game to Saturday's, with the Boatmen dominating possession and Hamworthy defending well. Wort & Hoole went close in the first half, after Gosney had saved well early on. But in the second half, Sholing took control and the relentless pressure on the Hammers defence was finally rewarded on 67 mins when Byron released Marv who beat the full back and his fired in cross towards Dan Mason was put in his own goal by the Hamworthy captain, Walker, at the near post. Boatmen had to endure 9 added on minutes, but saw it out reasonably comfortably to book a visit to the Conference South side on 22nd September - Match Report
Sholing 0-0 Hamworthy United
Boatmen dominated the game, but couldn't find the killer finish as this FA Cup game ended goalless and goes to a replay on Tuesday. An end to end first 10 mins made way to a game of attack v defence as the Boatmen dominated for long periods, but came up against a packed and well organised defence. Sawyer & Dan Mason went close in the first half, but best chances came in the 2nd half, with Dan Mason denied by a great save and Bulpitt firing a 20 yard shot inches over - Match Report & Photos
