FA reveal League changes (or not)
The FA have issued the revised Non League Structure and its disappointing news for Sholing. We have been kept in a South West division (as have Winchester & Totton), but Basingstoke & Thatcham have moved to a South Central Isthmian league (Moneyfields gone back down to the Wessex as per their request).
Management & Coaching Staff Changes
Sholing 0-2 Torquay United
The Boatmen's historic run in the FA Cup came to an end at the hands of the National League leaders. Sholing matched Torquay for long periods, created some decent chances, but were dealt a cruel blow on the stroke of half time when the linesman gave a soft penalty, which was scored. Boatmen continued to play well in atrocious conditions in the 2nd half, but a defensive mistake on 75 mins handed Torquay the killer second. A minute later, Dan Mason's powerful header appeared to be blocked on the line with the help of a hand, but nothing was given. Sholing can be very proud of their performance and if we had a bit more luck, it might have been a different result - Match Report & Photos
