Sholing picked up 5 awards at the Sydenhams Wessex League end of season presentation evening. To go with our Sydenhams Wessex Premier League Title and Russell Cotes Cup win, the Boatmen also picked up the April Club of the Month award. Also the April fair play award donated by MJM Sports and Kappa. Sholing also swept the board on the Respect awards for the season, winning the MJM Sports/Kappa award, the Wessex League's own respect award and the special Alf Peckham Respect award. The management & players made a concerted effort to improve discipline this season and it certainly paid off. Much fewer suspensions and club and player fines, all helped towards a hugely successful season.

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.
