VS SOUTHAMPTON UNI 2S 12TH OCTOBER 2019

Written by Ben

Poole 1s 4 - 1 Southampton Uni 2s

The 1’s made the journey to a wet Southampton with to face their university’s 2nd side, Poole got off to a flyer thanks to the in form Vinny who got on the end of Elliot's cross.. the 1st half continued in a tight manner after the great start. The back three of Welsh, Beagley and Hodgman dealt with all the opposition had to throw at Poole. Half time came with Poole holding a slender lead, after some sweets and some water Poole set up the same way they started and it seemed to do the trick again. A through ball through the middle of the pitch found Casey Fudge on the edge of the D, he calmed slotted pass the keeper to give Poole a 2-0 lead at the start of the 2nd half. Poole continued to counter Southampton’s press into opportunities but could not finish, eventually Poole had their 3rd thanks to Pocknell whom selfishly decided to flick the ball pass the keeper during a short corner routine which he was meant to pass the ball back to Chak.. Captain Nick was about to lose his rag but decided to celebrate with the goal scorer as the perfect outcome was achieved. With nothing to lose now Southampton threw players forward in an attempt to get back into the game. This left gaps at back for Poole to expose on the counter, thankfully Pocknell got his 2nd thanks to a rebound from the keeper to put the game to bed. With a comfortable 4 goal lead Poole decided to sit back and soak up the presser from the uni side, this plan worked until late on when Southampton scored a consolation goal. The umpires shortly after blew their whistles for the last time, allowing everyone to get out of the constant rain.

After today’s 4-1 victory this has left the 1st with 2 wins and 1 draw before they take on fellow league leaders Chichester 3’s next weekend.

Man of the Match went to the ever present Josh D who shielded the defence in an excellent way on his competitive debut for Poole HC

DOTD went to myself for multiple reasons which I could go on for all day for, however I don’t care as we got the 3 points at the end of the day! Bring on the tin!!

vs ALTON 1S 28TH SEPTEMBER 2019

Written by Toby

Poole Men’s ones 0 - 0 Alton Men’s ones

Today the Men’s Ones started their season with an away fixture against a familiar Alton. After an accident on the route made traffic slow, most of the team showed up late leaving us precious little time to warm up and meaning we started late. Alton had the push back and went straight onto the offensive, pressing us into our own 25 and making tempers run high. Cam got sent off after about 10 minutes for calling someone a naughty word beginning with ‘c’ however their players got away with describing the male genitalia and intimately harassing Elliot for sixty minutes. That’s Hampshire umpires for you. After 35 minutes and lots of stop start play, half time came along and an inspirational speech from Nick brought heads up and we went out ready and raring to go. With a new and improved attitude we won several short corners and were unlucky to score especially after a cracking drag flick from Nick that hit the cross bar. Some more great work from Tom and Elliot created some great chances but a mix of bad luck and disappointing finishes (sorry) stopped us from scoring. Some great defending and goal keeping from Chris kept the sheet clean, shame it was the wrong Chris kicking the ball away though. A good start to the season and happy to come away with a draw with all things considered.

MOTM: Chris S and Toby
DOD: Toby - missing an open goal
