9 Mar - Sholing Whites 5-0 Bitterne Youth Black - Man of the match: Adam French - Goal scorers : Reece Kempton 2, Lewis Evans 1, Max Davis 1, Ben Beadle (Tipper) 1
Sholing Whites u11 vs Bitterne Youth Black was to be the closing game of the season as our last fixture vs Winchester has been been given as a walk over due to Winch being unable to field a team. This is a real shame as the lads needed one more win to complete the double over all teams in Div 1 East. Either way this result means that Sholing Whites have won every single fixture this season which is an amazing feat and one to be proud of. A total of 89 goals scored and only 13 conceded in 17 matches.
In the second half Bitterne again rarely troubled the Whites as we switched to just two in defence. Adam french gave a solid performance which won him the man of the match. Reece Kempton doubled his tally making it 4-0 in the 46th minute and then Ben Beadle (Tipper) rounded things off with a headed which was to be the final goal of the 2014-15 season Final score 5-0
Sholing Whites u11 took on the Sholing Reds u11 for the second consecutive week. The game was played on a baron, hard and bumpy surface making it very difficult to play good football. In the first half the Whites gave a comfortable performance and were rarely troubled as the defence of Ben Daglish, Ben BT, Adam French and Sam Craddock snuffed out the reds attacks. The deadlock was broken early when Ben BT made a deep run from the left back position and pinged a long range shot from 25 yards over the outstretched reds keeper making it 1-0. The Whites created many chances but could not seem to find the final ball or get a decent shot in to increase the scoreline. Eventually Skipper Reece Kempton was moved from left midfield were he was having a great game and causing problems for the Reds, up into the main strikers role. This pay dividends almost immediately when Reece made it 2-0 with a valiant effort from close range. HT 2-0
In the second half the whites found more space in the midfield and Dan Gregory and Jack Miles started to stamp their authority on the game. Lots of chances (too many to mention) were created but went begging as the whites onslaught began to come wave after wave. On another day the score could and should have been a lot more. This game had the feel of an end of season tie. Final score 2-0
Sholing Whites already crowned league champions finally got the chance to play club rivals Sholing Reds after this fixture had been cancelled on two previous occasions. The Whites took a little while to get into their stride but eventually some good overlapping play by Dan Gregory playing at right back paid off, when Dan centered a cross which caught the reds keeper out of position to make it 1-0. The second goal on 18 minutes was the goal of the match with some great skill followed by a cracking long rage effort by Jack Miles which gave the Reds keeper no chance making it 2-0. The Whites began to take control of the tie and soon it was 3-0 when Lewis Evans finished off a fine move on 24 minutes. Ben Daglish in goal from the start today was rarely troubled in the first half and along with Dan Gregory, Ben Beadle (Tipper) and Adam French it looked like the Reds were not able to break through. Finley Lintott-Warrillow then got in on the act to make it 4-0 just before half time. HT 4-0
In the second half a slight change in personnel was made with Lewis Amos now in goal, Ben Daglish coming out of goal in at right back. Dan Gregory pushed into a central midfield role with Jack Miles who had been having a great game and skipper Reece Kempton dropped back into centre of defence leaving Adam French taking a break on the side lines. The Whites created several second half chances but we had become a bit goal shy with quite a few missed opportunities. The Reds got themselves a well earned goal from Logan Dimond who scored with a long range effort making it 4-1. The Whites hit back with a goal from Ben Beadle (Tipper) which was disallowed for off side and then a headed goal from Finley LW only for it also to be disallowed this time for what we think was a foul throw? Final score 4-1
Sholing Whites stepped out onto the pitch today knowing only a draw was required to win division 1 East with 4 games to spare. It wasn't long before Sholing showed the type of football that has earned them the right to be at the top of the league. Lewis Evans who is in great form, opened the scoring after just 5 minutes when he followed up a rebound. Finley LW then capitalised on a goal keeping error to make it 2-0 to keep his record up of scoring in each of the 14 games to date. Lewis grabbed his second goal after some great build up play through the midfield of Finley LW, Dan Gregory, Reece Kempton and Max Davis. Ben Beadle Tipper playing at left back demonstrated some excellent creativity throughout the match and was rewarded with a goal just before half time. HT 4-0
At half time we asked the boys to shuffle the pack and as always the whole team responded well being called into a number of different positions. This is really important to the teams development that they can adapt and show some diversity when asked to play out of their normal roles. This various changes did slightly disrupt the pattern of play but the outcomes were still positive.
A sublime chipped effort from Man of the Match Ben BT got the second half underway to make it 5-0. Ben had now pushed into a central position alongside skipper Reece Kempton. Two own goals then followed after some consistent pressure one from a passback the other taking a deflection from a corner making it 7-0. Finley then added his second to make it 8-0 before Ben completed his hatrick.
Final score 9-0 but should have been 10 after Lewis Evans ran from an onside position to score only to be given offside to a non interfering player (you get them sometimes).
To be crowned league champions of Div 1 East is a right the lads have earned with 14 straight victories. The challenge is now to finish the season winning all 4 remaining fixtures.
Still unbeaten to date and winners of the Tyro League!!!!!!!!
8 Feb - Sholing Whites 6-0 Winchester Youth Black Blue - Man of the match: Lewis Evans - Goal scorers : Lewis Evans 4, Finley Lintott- Warrillow 1, Ben Daglish 1
A step closer to winning the league was the order of the day. A very scrappy match which brought no goals in the first half other than a goal by Lewis which was cut back to him to slot home, only to be wrongly given off-side by the linesman. I think this made the lads more determined going into the second half to make amends. HT 0-0
A simple instruction at half time was given which was to up the work rate. The boys who have consistently shown to be a far better second half team didn't disappoint yet again.
A through ball to Finley Lintott-Warrillow allowed him to run onto the ball and cooly slot it past the Winchester keeper to finally give us the lead at 1-0. This then allowed the flood gates to open and Winchester struggled to hold firm after some strong defending by them in the first half. Lewis Evans got in on the act to put the Whites 2 up. Ben Daglish forced the ball across the line making it 3-0 after a bit of a goal mouth scramble. Lewis Evans made it 4-0 with his second of the match after a fantastic through ball from deep by Max Davis. Now the whites really started to come on strong and when skipper Reece Kempton was tripped inside the box he stepped aside as our regular spot kick taker and gave Lewis the opportunity to complete his first hatrick. Unfortunately Lewis's effort hit the foot of the post and rebounded out. A few minutes after the miss Lewis somehow managed to spin and strike the ball with real force from a very tight angle near the edge of the box to finally get his third goal making it 5-0. Then in the dying minutes Lewis notched up his 4th and the teams 6th to complete the score line of 6-0.
The Whites now require a single point from their remaining 5 matches to clinch the league title, next up Sholing Reds.
Man of the match was an easy choice this week going to Lewis Evans for scoring 4 of the 6 goals. All players have now had at least one week each of being the MOM which demonstrates what a solid unit we have and how all of their contributions are greatly valued.
Happy Birthday to both Bens and Finley who all turned 11 over this weekend
1 Feb - Sholing Whites 3-1 Hedge End Blue - Man of the match: Adam French - Goal scorers : Finley Lintott- Warrillow 2, Reece Kempton 1
A top of the table clash which could well decide who wins the league title and it wasn't a disappointment.
Skipper Reece Kempton won the toss and decided to change ends giving Sholing the task of playing into the strong and very cold January wind. This was part of the game plan as we felt we would be too strong in the second half with the wind up our backs.
Max Davis was called into an unfamiliar role in defence and he was pivitol in limiting the Blues chances. An early goal gave Sholing the lead when Ben Beadle Tipper showed a touch of class when he sublimely lobbed the Hedge End defence line to put in top scorer Finley Lintott-Warrillow who drilled a left foot shoot high into the opposite corner leaving the keeper no chance. Hedge End replied by taking advantage of the wind with a long ball over the Sholing defence which was neatly tucked under keeper Ben Daglish making it 1-1. New signing Sam Craddock started as substitute but was soon involved sooner than expected when Adam French left the field for a short while to recover from an injury. Sholing battled well against the strong wind and held their own and could have gone ahead again on several occasions. Half time 1-1
In the second half Sholing were able to press much higher up the pitch and with Jack Miles partnered by Dan Gregory who both worked their socks off to keep main man David Salter from Hedge End quiet and we began to come on strong. Adam French continued to press high up the left wing and link up well with his team mates causing real issues for the blues. Finley L-W was put through on the left side and flashed a shot across the goal to put Sholing up 2-1 with his 21st goal of the season. Sholing continued to pour on the pressure and when Finley L-W was brought down in the box skipper Reece Kempton stepped forward to calmly slot home from the spot making it 3-1 to put the game out of sight. Keeper Ben Daglish who gave another solid performance came off for Lewis Amos who had patiently waited for his chance with 10 min's remaining. Lewis Evans typically worked hard for his team as well and gave a much improved second half performance.
The Whites are now 6 points clear with 3 games in hand.
Man of the match was a difficult choice with great performances by Ben in goal and Finley with his goals and overall performance. However the decision went with Adam French who never stopped working.
19 Jan - Sholing Whites 10-0 Soccer For All Tigers - Man of the match: Jack Miles
This was never expected to be much of a test as the previous encounter had ended 13-0. Sholing started with only 2 at the back in skipper Reece Kempton and Adam French allowing for 2 up front. The first half brought about the expected rout with the first goal going in after just 4 mins by Finley who quickly followed up with the second a few minutes later. Goals continued to flow with strikes from Jack Miles, Ben Daglish, Ben Beadle (Tipper) 2, and Finley completing his hatrick. HT 7-0
For the second half the lads were challenged with playing 3 touch football with more of a focus on passing and movement rather than scoring goals. This also gave us the opportunity to change things around by pushing the defensive line into the midfield and moving the wide players Finley and Max Davis back to cover. The boys all responded well to this task and although the second half only brought us 3 more goals the emphasis created better movement and play in general from the team as a whole. Goals in the second half came from Ben Dalglish doubling his tally, Lewis Evans and Dan Gregory with his first of the season. All boys including Lewis Amos in goal have now contributed to our total of 60 goals in 11 games with only 11 conceded. FT 10-0
Man of the match was awarded to Jack Miles for his persistent effort week in week out in the centre of midfield. You would be hard pushed to find a harder working player in the league or one more skilful.
4 Jan - Sholing Whites 10-2 Wyvern Saints - Man of the match: Reece Kempton
The first very cold game of 2015 got off to a flying start with plenty of good passing movement from Sholing. Jack Miles sent a nice ball over to Max Davis who took a shot, from which Lewis Evans took advantage of the rebound from the post, to score the first goal within in 10 minutes of the game starting.
Within a few minutes and on the back of a free kick, Wyvern Saints scored the equaliser. It was not long before Wyvern Saints were giving Sholing another run for their money and Lewis Amos had to be on his toes saving a potential second goal. Finley Lintott-Warrillow was having none of this and again with some tactical passing from the rest of the team received a nice ball to the head and Finley magnificently headed it in to score our second goal of the game. 5 Minutes later Ben Beadle (Tipper) cleverly let the ball run though his legs into the path of Max Davis who then cutely chipped over the diving Wyvern keeper to score the third goal for Sholing Whites.
Wyvern Saints got back into the action and were awarded a free kick and it was not long before Lewis Amos was involved again when he got hold of the shot but unfortunately it crept just over the line. Some very good, fast football took place with Adam French passing to Jack Miles then on to Reece Kempton who got the ball nicely across to Lewis Evans who then shot, but was unfortunate to hit the post. Daniel Gregory passed the ball to Finley Lintott-Warrillow who again shot and hit the post. Then within 5 minutes Finley had the ball again, running up the pitch taking on several Wyvern Saints players to strike but was a little left of the goal. Further great football took place with Jack Miles taking a cracking shot narrowly missing going to the right of the goal. HT 3-2
The second half saw Sholing Whites go from strength to strength and within 8 minutes, Finley had a goal disallowed for being offside and soon after that, Max Davis scored the first goal of the second half. Some great defending by Adam French, Reece Kempton and Ben Daglish, before Ben Daglish replaced Lewis Amos in goal, prevented any further goals being scored by Wyvern Saints in the second half. Max Davis tackled several Wyvern Saints players to the slot in his third goal. A nice through ball from Daniel Gregory to Finley Lintott-Warrillow allowed Finley to score his second goal of the match. Wyvern Saints seemed to raise their game a little at this point and put Ben Daglish to the test saving a strike from the edge of the box. Ben Beadle (Tipper) was fast on his toes to score his first goal of the match with one of his usual hard strikes leaving the Wyvern Saints goal keeper with no chance at all.
Wyvern Saints were becoming desperate at this stage and Jack Miles was brought down inside the penalty area, providing skipper and man of the match Reece Kempton an opportunity to score a coolly taken penalty. The game kept its momentum with Ben Beadle (Tipper) taking advantage from a rebound provided by Lewis Evans to score his second goal of the match and the score was now at 9-2.
Not happy with 9-2, Lewis Evans went on to score the last goal of the match just before the final whistle blew taking it into double figures giving a score at Full Time 10-2.
That’s now 10 consecutive wins for the Whites with 8 to play.
