VS CAMBERLEY & FARNBOROUGH 3 16TH FEBRUARY 2019

This week's fixture saw Camberley travel down to the beach fortress of Ashdown to face a Poole 2s side that were hungry for a comeback result after a tough loss last week. The game started exactly how you'd expect, with the whistle. Camberley couldn't handle Pooles desire and conceded some quickfire goals from Dan D and Dan P. Paul Fletcher forgot to lead by example and he got sent off for trying to kick the ball into row Z. This allowed Camberley to get back into the game with a couple goals. Poole returned fire and Jack and the two deadly Dans destroyed the Camberley barricades to end the game 5-3. Also Robin Missed a sitter. Not a bad result for an 11am push back, eh Chris?

5-3 FT
MOTM - Dan P for two goals and a worldie performance
Dotd - Paul for channeling his inner Chris Smalling. Honourable Dotd mention for Benjamin P for abandoning the team for the 2nd weekend in a row, who does he think he is?

vs Eastleigh 12th January 2019

5:3 win

Super 2’s kick start their 2nd half of the season with comeback win!!

Poole Mens 2’s restarted their promotion push with a home game against a fired up Eastleigh side, an early push back was agreed which caught Pocknell out as he just made the game.

Some excellent forward play by Spencer gave Poole an early lead, flicking the ball their keeper which was one of our own Ashley Llewellyn whom had stepped in for them as their keeper was caught up in a crash on route. Poole 2’s kept the momentum of the first goal and created another, this time a powerful run from Pocknell from midfield allowed him to find Russell, who’s first time finish was to quick for Llewellyn or did he let it in? Poole continued to dominate but couldn’t find a third goal to kill off the game, Eastleigh managed to pull one by just before half time to set up a tense 2nd half.

After a positive team talk at half time is was agreed by all the players to not switch off for 5/10 minutes in the 2nd half, this was clearly not performed as Eastleigh came out all guns firing as two quick goals allowed them to take the lead! One of them being a penalty stroke due to Fletcher stopping the ball with his foot on the line, this resulted in a yellow card as well.

With Poole behind now and down to 10 men it looked like the game had gotten away from them, however Potts had other ideas. 
A perfect Aerial from Warren found Potts on the edge of the D, Potts then did the rest flicking passed Llewellyn. All square now and with Fletcher back on it was time to push for the victory. Russell found himself in a strange situation when he a been fouled, he decided to square up to the opposition who fouled him, once he realised that it was a bald criminal from Eastleigh he decided to back down. Still pushing for the win Poole won a short corner which went straight to Williams to smash home via deflection to give Poole back to lead! Potts flicked pass Llewellyn again who said at half time “I don’t care who scores as long as I stop Pottsy” these words came back to bite him clearly. That put the game to bed giving Poole 2’s a much deserved win, this was the 2’s 5th win in a row!

After retiring back to the Pilot for a beverage, pizza and chips. The team in high spirits celebrated another win, next week the 2’s have a week off due to Fareham pulling out the league.

Man of the match: Russell
DOTD: Pocknell

vs Gosport 2s 8th December 2018

Win 7-3

Poole came out of the blocks running and as a result took an early two goal lead courtesy of Dan P from consecutive short corners. Poole switched off momentarily however and conceded, but it wasn’t a bad strike to be fair.

Poole then pushed for not only a third, but a fourth and a fifth.Chris S carried the ball into the box and slammed it into the corner, while Ben P scored another goal from an acute angle. Dan D extended the lead with a quick readjustment of his feet to thread home a fifth.With not much longer left to play, we became complacent. Gosport caught us on the break twice, making the scoreline more respectable. Back to back bookings resulted in Poole going down to nine men, that said, Gosport had already lost a player who went home as his mum didn’t let him stay out any longer.Poole recovered quickly as they soon made it six, when Alex W slid the ball to me at left slip, and was thumped beyond the goalie and his defence.Dan D came up with his own piece of magic with perhaps the goal of the game, deflecting another Alex Warren pass onto the inside of the bar and into the net.The game finished 7-3 and kept the team in high spirits over Christmas.#wearethechampions #wearegoingup
