Blackfield 2-3 Sholing
Boatmen won an entertaining pre-season friendly on a very hot day at Blackfield. After going behind, Pete Castle scored a well worked equaliser to level the scores at half time. Jake Hoole put us in front, capitalising on a mistake from the keeper and soon after, Dan Mason got on the scoresheet from a corner. Match Report

Fawley 2-1 Sholing
First pre-season friendly of the new campaign completed and a useful run-out for the Boatmen. The result maybe didn't reflect the overall balance of play, but it was much more about getting minutes in the tank and giving the squad a run-out. Lee Wort smashed in our goal. Report Here
We would like to increase the number of matchday stewards at home games. First Aid training, not essential, but would be helpful. All stewards will receive appropriate clothing and a free drink/food on matchdays. Contact Greg Dickson on 07496 804555 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Fixtures for the new season were issued last night and Sholing start with 3 away games in August. First up is a trip to Bemerton Heath on Saturday 4th, quickly followed by Alresford on Tuesday 7th and Christchurch on Friday 17th. The FA cup draws due soon will fill in the blank weekends in the diary, but our first scheduled home game is v Hamworthy in early September. If we get a home draw in the FA Cup, in all likelihood, it will be a Friday night (if opposition agrees). In the Wessex League Cup, we enter the competition in Round 2, away at Tadley Calleva.
