Ed’s Corner

1 February 2014

W3     D0    L3     GF: 18    GA: 17

It’s hard, sometimes, to keep coming up with superlatives when extreme results come so thick and fast.
Following L2’s equal sharing of six goals last week, L1 took it to another level by sharing three hat-tricks between them. However clean sheets remain in short supply.
M2 were the Men’s representatives with a convincing win but both Ladies sides kept their respective winning streaks going, L1 as team of the week in their own version of a thirteen goal thriller (the club’s third of the season).

L1 hosted Winchester Academy with whom they drew 1-1 in October. However there were few similarities with that game as L1 ran out 10-3 winners. No fewer than three hat-tricks from Amber Jackson, Leah Coney and Bernice Gunn who, not to be outdone, also added a fourth. The plethora of goals puts them above Fareham on goal difference and within striking distance of Winchester 3, who lost to Fareham today. Next Saturday’s trip to Fareham is therefore pivotal but I suspect November’s 5-0 win against them should be discounted as a one-off result.

L2 came from behind to record their third straight win away to Basingstoke 5 with a 2-1 victory that saw them to within a point of their opponents. Goals came from Bea Cattermull and Melissa Juniper. Next week they host 2nd placed Trojans (W14 D1 L1). L2 Inflicted Trojans’ only defeat in November, although this the result of a penalty forefeit and they may be looking for revenge.

M2 swept away guests Winchester 6 with a 4-1 win and only conceded a weak goal in the dying moments. Goals from James Dale, Edward Peet, Gavin England and Brad Weeks saw them climb to within two points of their opponents. Next week they face Southampton, one place behind.

M1 visited Salisbury 2, but weren’t able to improve on the 4-4 scoreline, finally succumbing 1-2. The goal was scored by Jack Chapman. They now slip to 6th place but host 11th placed Hamble in a week to recover some of the lost ground.

M3 were on the road to Fareham 8 and weren’t able to overcome their higher-placed opposition, losing 1-8 with the goal from James Connolly. Next week’s visitors are 2nd place Winchester who only narrowly won 3-2 in December.

M4 were unlucky to suffer a rare shut-out, losing 0-2 to Alton 3. Given their opponents league position – 2nd – it was still a close game and there is plenty to look forward to in the rest of the season. A short trip to third-placed Basingstoke Vikings beckons.


18 goals this week was the 5th best of the season and takes the total to 256. This is a mind-numbing 91 goals more than the same time last season.
Conceding 17 was a disappointment, but nothing more as goal difference impoves again to +24.














Goals are not all it is about as the club has reached 38 wins for the season, only two shy of last season’s total.














M2 missed out on a clean sheet by a whisker so we will have to wait for the 17th of the season.

Ranking is by no. of clean sheets, then average goals per game (must have played in three league games).


We don’t always have a hat-trick so we don’t always have a hat-trick graph, but when you have three in one game (a hat-trick hat-trick?) then you knew it was coming.
What else to say but ‘Well done ladies!’.












It’s February, and they’re off.. with a theme already appearing with L1s already in double figures from week one.
