Club Statement - Hampshire Senior Cup
Regarding the Hampshire FA Senior cup fixture, AFC Stoneham v Sholing FC, I have been instructed by the clubs directors, to inform you that due to a lack of consultation and notice of the change of this fixture, SHOLING FC has withdrawn from the HFA Senior Cup competition this season.
This was a hard decision for the directors to make, and we are sorry and extremely disappointed for the club officials, players and supporters that the club had to take this action, but the conduct of The HFA and AFC Stoneham shows lack of respect and consideration of Sholing FC, and have left the directors and committee no option.
The fixture was postponed and re-arranged without consulting us, and we were left out of any discussion.
It is stated that in the spirit of fairness and respect for the integrity of the competition the club should accept the change, but Sholing FC is looking for fairness and integrity as well.
Sholing FC has always accepted the FA decisions whether they are right or wrong. This time the club has been put in an untenable position, due to lack of consultation and communication from both the HFA and AFC Stoneham.
The changes that were made and the dates selected were not suitable to Sholing FC, and we made it clear to HFA that it could not be changed without the clubs agreement, but they went ahead with the change anyway.
This is unacceptable to me and the directors and the decision was made that the club would not participate in the competition this season.
The support from all player,supporters and volunteers is always appreciated and Sholing FC will not allow our club to be treated in such a manner.
New First Team Coach
Dave Diaper : I am delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Gamble, who will be joining the Management Team as First Team Coach for the up and coming season. Mark has a wealth of experience as a player & in coaching. He holds Uefa B coaching qualifications & worked for many years at Southampton FC as their education manager. He also managed Wimborne Town & is currently heading up our U18 Academy programme.
Mark Gamble : I am really keen to be part of it and look forward to having a good pre-season with the players. It’s an exciting time for the club and I am keen to work with the rest of the management to make sure we are fully prepared for what the season has in store for us. My involvement with Sholing U18 Academy will also ensure that future talent within the Club is recognised thus providing the pathway to the First Team.

Southern League Premier South Constitution
Following promotion we have been placed in the Southern League Premier South. We will be facing some clubs we know well, others we have played at points in the past and quite a few who we have never played before. Geographically, despite playing 3 more away games this upcoming season, we will actually be travelling a lot less than last season!
