Sholing 4-0 Whitchurch United
Boatmen got our pre-season underway with an entertaining win in torrential rain. Dan Mason opened the scoring with a trademark turn & shot into the bottom corner. Dan Miller nodded in at the far post from a corner before Dan Mason did well to set up Lee Wort to force the ball over the line. Second half was a bit more disjointed due to a flurry of subs to give everyone a run-out. Lee Wort had a penalty saved, but quickly made amends by converting a Barry Mason cross - Match Report & Photo Gallery

Sholing 3-1 Team Solent
Boatmen made it 2 Cup Wins in 3 Days by lifting the Southampton Senior Cup at St Mary's! Dan Mason put Sholing ahead on 24 mins with a typically classy finish for his 45th of the season. Solent equalised 4 mins later via Mitford to make it level at Half Time. Referee spotted a handball in the Solent box on 49 minutes and Lee Wort scored the penalty. This was immediately followed with a Red card for Solent's Wiseman for dissent and the Boatmen stretched their lead on 66 mins when Micky Hubbard fired in a low shot from 25 yards. Byron Mason lifted his second Cup of the week to round off a great season for Sholing - Match Report & Photo Gallery
Sholing 2-1 Baffins Milton Rovers
Boatmen lifted the Sydenhams Wessex League Cup thanks to goals from the Mason brothers, Byron & Dan. Byron headed in a Brewster corner after 12 minutes for his first goal since September. Dan Miller then had a header that appeared to go well over the line before being cleared, but officials didn't give it. Sholing were always threatening from set pieces and limited Baffins to just one effort on goal in the 1st half. On 52 minutes the lead was doubled by Dan Mason when he swept in a Bulpitt flick-on from a TJ cross. Baffins grabbed a consolation with the last kick of the game. Boatmen win the League Cup for the second time in our history - Match Report & Photo Gallery
