First Team Squad A-Z Profiles :
Keane Anderson - Joined us from Aldershot Town on a month's loan that has now been extended. A cultured 19 year old midfielder
Luka Chalwell - The 19 year old striker is on loan from Eastleigh FC, Luka is also a full international for the British Virgin Islands
Jake Cope - The wide player was part of the AFC Bournemouth academy before joining Poole Town. "Copey" topped the assist table for the Boatmen in 22/23 and chips in with his fair share of goals also
Charlie Davis - The classy central midfielder was snapped up after his release from AFC Totton amongst interest from several other local teams. Scored a brilliant freekick on his debut
Jake Flannigan - Another big addition to the squad this season, former Southampton player "Flan" can play either in defence or midfield. Was on loan at Burton Albion with Jake Hesketh, before being released by Saints. Later joined Havant & Waterlooville and most recently played at Step 3 at Bognor Regis
Rob Flooks - "Flooksy" started out at with the Boatmen, but move on as a teenager, playing central defence for Winchester & Totton. A commanding presence at the back and dangerous at set pieces
Ryan Gosney - "Gos" is arguably one of the very best keepers at this level of football and has improved every season since joining Sholing in 2014. Recently made it 150 clean sheets in just over 360 games for the Boatmen. Also has a 100% record scoring penalties!
Karlos Gregory - Made a big impression since his loan move from AFC Bournemouth. The 17 year old central midfielder plays with a maturity beyond his years
Jake Hesketh - Boatmen pulled off a major coup by signing the former Southampton & Eastleigh attacking midfielder. Still only 27, "Hesk" played in an UEFA Cup tie for Saints and has also played professional football at Burton Albion, MK Dons and Lincoln City. His spell at Eastleigh came to an end and Sholing beat a host of clubs to his signing.
Byron Mason - "By" recently played his 700th game for the Boatmen and has done it all for the club, lifting over a dozen trophies, including the FA Vase in 2014. A natural leader, the beating heart of the side for over a decade as Captain.
Dan Mason - "D-Dan" youngest of the Mason brothers. Has scored goals for fun for the Boatmen, hitting 280+ goals, with a goal every other game ratio. Loves a spectacular finish. A real handful for any defender, sets up as many goals as he scores.
Marvin McLean - Became the club record appearance holder when he surprassed 650 appearances in August 2019 and is now approaching 800! "Marv" famously scored the winning goal at Wembley in the FA Vase in 2014. Spent most his Sholing career as a left winger, but moved to left back/wing back and excelled in those positions, still beating defenders for pace.
Dan Miller - "Millsy" is a dominant centre half, who came through the youth system to break through into the first team at just 18 years old. Despite playing over 400 times, has only been booked a handful of times. As the Sholing fans like to sing... "you'll never beat Dan Miller"
George Milner-Smith - 19 year old centre half on loan from Aldershot Town who is strong in the air and good with his feet
Owen Roundell - Came through the Sholing youth system and has made 300 appearances for the Boatmen. Versatile player "Owzie" can play centre back or holding midfield
Brad Targett - Blessed with pace and finishing ability and scored a last gasp winner in the 2019 Russell Cotes Cup Final. As well as up front, "Bradders" can play as a wing back on either flank and loves a long range strike.
Mathias Tepe - Joined on loan from AFC Wimbledon. The skillful full back can play either wing
Charlie Wagstaffe - "Wags" joined Sholing for 20/21, moving up the road from Hamble Club and has improved season on season in the centre of midfield. Became a mainstay in midfield during the promotion season of 22/23.
Theo Widger - Made his debut in goal at just 16 years old and immediately impressed with his maturity and shot stopping abilities. Showed great calmness being thrust into the Play Off Semi Final.
