VS ANDOVER 3S 8TH FEBRUARY 2020

Match Report Written by Dan D

A lovely fine Sunny morning and thankfully no frozen pitch, saw us home to Andover whom were sitting 4 points below us in the league.

We knew today’s game was vital to push for the promotion as we sit 2 point behind Alton, so a win was much needed.

Games starts and a good start from us driving the ball into Andover’s half testing their keeper several times and hitting the post! Their keeper ended up being very good laying on the floor acting as a giant log! Still we couldn’t get it in, much to our frustration.

An unfortunate counter attack saw them somehow take the lead. Still we tried battling back but we failed to score.

Half time.

Second half started pretty much as the first half but Andover decided they wanted to up their game and attack us more. Unfortunately within the second half we conceded two more goals. 3-0 down... still we tried not to let this get to us and carried on battling again testing their keeper but failing to score.

Nearing the end Robin was through and going to release the trigger but got shoved in the back to the ground. Well a short was given (some may say could have been awarded more?) but we failed to convert.

So final whistle came and we today walk away with a unfortunate 3-0 defeat.

We shall take this on the chin and bounce back next game!!

Motm was Chad.
Dod was ended up being myself, although it was joint with Martin, until he voted me due to not wanting to get DOD (cheers mate lol)

VS CAMBERLEY AND FARNBOROUGH 3S 1ST FEBRUARY 2020

Match Report Written by Steven C

The sun shone on the glorious grounds of Ashdown on this Saturday morning. After a massive 3 points last time out against Alton, we knew we couldn’t let the standard of our performance drop. The pre match nerves were clearly evident as Martin ushered the chickens into the closed gate in the warm up. However, the game started in the perfect manner with Chris S scoring early doors to settle the pre match nerves. Poole quickly settled into a smooth rhythm much like a knife through butter, passing was strong and we were working off each other opening up the spaces. This quickly led to a smart finish from Chris B and a lovely volley from Dan D which caused the mass audience to erupt. It didn’t all go to plan as I decided that scoring a goal from 4 yards out was so last week (hence the match report). Poole continued to push for more and were rewarded with two more goals before half time, including a phenomenal tomahawk from kimber.

5-0 HT (hope your still reading!)

The inspirational half time team talk included the rounds of the jelly babies and Paul’s famous quote ‘it’s still 0-0’. Clearly C&F didn’t particularly like the half time facilities as they were ready to go almost instantly. They started the half the better of the two teams getting the ball into the D and piling pressure on poole’s goal. The more the match wore on though the more Poole continued to create
chances. Dan D and Chris S continuing to link up well which resulted in another two gaols being added. The result could have looked more like the Wales result in the rugby, however the C&B keeper was on fire pulling of some crazy saves. Another huge result in the race for promotion for the 2’s !!!

Result 7-0
Dod myself followed closely by Chris B
Motm- kimber and Chris S

VS ALTON 2S 25TH JANUARY 2020

Match Report Written by Martin W

Poole Men's 2 came up against second place Alton 2's with the game being a 6 point game! We knew we had to win! So as Alton warmed up we stood around chatting lol then we started warming up and we're ready from the off! Every player today ran their socks off and marked like an absolute BEAST! With our Captain not having a win in his Poole Hockey Club career and it being his birthday week we got our first gaol from chasing every ball and playing it in from the right where Chris Spencer scored from a rebound. Waves of attack came and defending was solid but with our fast pace in Dan K, Charlie and Chad our counter attacking hockey was on form! First half ended 1-0. Alton were angry and it started showing! Green card to Alton in the first 5 and then a green for Poole for chatting back (🐦'y) then a couple more cards for each team. A second was scored as similar as the first but by Stephen C. The team had a fantastic performance and no one gave anything less than 100% well done BOYS!!! still in third but only 1 point in it. MOTM - Dan K DOTD - Freddie Reason - playing for the ones. Final Score 2-0
