15 January - Club of the Month
For the Third time this season, Sholing have been named Wessex Premier club of the month, this time for the December period. The Boatmen were unbeaten.
22 November - Alex Zarrelli
Extremely sad & shocking news that Alessandro (Alex) Zarrelli has died following a road traffic accident on Sunday. Alex (34) had very recently joined the club, making two appearances from the bench after a long career playing and coaching in Non League & Youth Football. The club sends its deepest condolences to Alex's friends & family. RIP Alex.
Dave Diaper posted on Facebook : I speak with a very heavy heart in the short time I knew Alex it was clear that he loved his football he would regularly phone me and talk about the success of the Club and how he hoped to be part of it. He was a likeable person who was very proud to mention to his dad that he was part of Sholing Football Club and he recently brought his dad to one of our games. You will be missed but not forgotten Alex RIP.
Club Captain, Byron Mason, posted on Instagram : Terrible news. We only knew him a short time, but enough to know he's a great guy. Thoughts are with his family from all the Sholing players.
19 November - Club of the Month
For the second time this season, Sholing have been voted the Wessex Premier Club of the Month. We had a 100% record in the month and the award was presented to Sholing Club President, Bill Boyle by Paul Scoble before our match against Baffins Milton Rovers.

19 September - Slough Preview
This Saturday sees us make the relatively short trip to Slough Town to play them in the FA Cup 2nd Round Qualifying. Slough play in the National League South Division and are currently 7th in the League. This is one of the toughest draws we could of wished for and will certainly test the resolve and character of the whole squad.
Their 3G pitch will also be a disadvantage to us, but on the plus side, we played well & won on Hamworthy's in the last round and we should be able to pick from a full squad with Pete Castle completing his 3 match ban.
We are looking forward to the occasion and the opportunity to play against a Club with such an iconic history, which is clearly demonstrated by them appearing in the 2nd Round Proper of the FA Cup on no less than 8 occasions with the most recent being just last season.
We would much appreciate your support to back us at Slough. There is currently space on the coach, which leaves the ground at 11:15am. £10 per seat.
We will do our best to bridge the 3 level gap between the Clubs and after all, this is the FA Cup and you never know...
