Sholing 1-0 Bashley

Owen Royl's sweetly struck half-volley on 65 minutes got the Boatmen back to winning ways as we ground out the victory.  The visitors had the best of the first half, with Gosney saving several shots and Jack putting the ball over when it seemed easier to score.  Sholing improved after the restart, without creating much, but a cross by Wort found Royl on the edge of the box and he connected perfectly with a low half volley that flew in - Match Report & Photos

Hamworthy Utd 1-0 Sholing

Boatmen's 12 match unbeaten run in the league came to an end with a disappointing performance at Hamworthy.  A dull first half, wasn't improved upon much in the second, although the home side did force Gosney into a brilliant double-save.  Dan Mason had our only meaningful effort on target and on 75 mins, the home side grabbed the only goal after we gifted them possession - Match Report & Photos

Sholing 6-0 Petersfield Town

Lee Wort scored a hat-trick as a much changed Boatmen side defeated bottom of the table, Petersfield. Wort opened the scoring on 26 mins, breaking the offside trap to finish. He then nicely set up Rory Wood, who scored at the 2nd attempt. Just after half time, Marlon Mason picked out Lee Wort with a cross and the striker steered in his first time shot. A spell of possession ended with Jamie Bulpitt scoring a superb goal from just inside the area on 60 mins.  On 72 mins, Alex Sawyer's cross was smashed into his own net by a Petersfield defender from 10 yards. On 88 mins, Lee Wort got his deserved hat-trick, when he got to a cross ahead of the keeper, touched it past him and tapped into the empty net - Match Report & Photos

Hamble Club 1-1 Sholing

An eventful local derby, but mostly for all the wrong reasons. Just as the players walked onto the pitch, the floodlights failed, meaning a 15 delay.  Sholing took the lead on 8 minutes when Lee Wort's shot skidded past the keeper & defenders to find the net. Boatmen dominated the first half with Byron, Wort & Bulpitt all going close.  2 mins into the 2nd half, Ref astonishes everyone when he pulls out a red card for Byron.  A flurry of cards followed for both sides, before Byrne prodded an equaliser for Hamble on 74 mins - Match Report

Dan Mason scored twice on his 300th appearance for the Boatmen as we come from behind to do the double over Baffins.  In our first ever visit to the Portsmouth club, the home side scored after just 2 minutes through Neal, but Lee Wort equalised on 13 mins after a goal mouth scramble. Second half belonged to D-Dan who put us ahead on 52 mins and on 64 mins, slotted in his 18th of the season to secure the points and make it 11 unbeaten games in the league - Match Report

Newport 0-1 Sholing

A 52nd minute goal from Marv McLean saw the Boatmen deservedly pick up all three points on the Isle of Wight. Several chances were spurned in a first half that Sholing edged, with Dan Mason having 3 in the space of a minute. The breakthrough came when Lee Wort's shot spun into the path of the arriving Marv McLean who finished from inside the 6 yard box.  Wort then hit the bar and despite soaking up some late pressure, the home side couldn't work Gosney as we move back up to the 3rd in the League - Match Report
