Poole Men's 2nds 4 - 0 Gosport 2nds

A bare eleven travelled away to Gosport to get their second fixture of the new campaign underway, and were almost down to ten when I remembered that I had left my kit in my car back home. Nevertheless I found a way and began the game with a full team. Martin filled in again wearing the pads and used a familiar 3-5-2 formation. Poole went ahead via Pottsy’s effort to help settle them into the match. Marking was loose but at half time with the score still at 1-0 we addressed this and came out stronger in the second half. Steve then produced a solo goal after some neat trickery and a accurate strike into the bottom corner. It wasn’t long before Poole extended the lead and Potts added to his tally. There wasn’t much for Martin to save but when it did come his way he dealt with it accordingly. Finally Poole wrapped up the points as Dan D put a low drive beyond the goalkeeper from the middle of the 16 yard area.


Match report written by Dan D

10am meet at home for today’s game. Everyone turned up all bar Christian whom thought was a 11.30 meet and doing his Cv lol...

We started well dominating possession especially as Eastleigh came with 9! Persistence paid off with a snapped taken shot by me steered in at the back post by Robin. Further decent passing and moving around led to another goal again tucked in at the back post again by Robin. 2-0.

We were the down to 10 men as a team due to myself getting a yellow card for ‘reacting’ to the Eastleigh centre-back whom was persistent at hitting my legs with his stick and then deciding to kick me whilst off the ball.... nice sportsmanship there. Anyways...... although down to 10 we still dominate possession and again we scored this time by Potts. 3-0.

Half time whistle .

Second half starter and still with 10 men saw Eastleigh try to come back at us but all they could do was long hits and not really picking out any of their players. Finally back to the full team saw some real good movement of the ball back and around switching play. Passing from back to front saw us on the front foot attaching and putting more pressure on their D. Pressure paid off as it saw us score 4,5 and 6 in quick succession with Robin tucking away for a hat trick (nice) and Chad getting a quick double!

More and more attacking play finally saw us get the seventh goal which was nicely put away by Chad for his hat trick (good effort).

We weren’t quite done there and wanted more but sadly I wasn’t on form as a striker and so to speak ‘couldn’t hit a barn door’ with chances going wide or saved!

That was it final whistle goes a 7-0 win for the seconds and a great start to the league. Now to carry that on into next weeks game!!
