If you're missing Chris Townend's lengthy reports, here's a nice long read especially for you today ;)

VS SOUTHAMPTON UNI 5 | 09/03/19 11.30 PB

Today’s fixture between Poole Seconds and bottom side Southampton University Fifths had been scheduled to start at 11.30am, however after a mix-up with the times Poole arrived fifteen minutes late, or at least six of them did.

Despite efforts to rearrange the match for a later time or postpone altogether, Poole were unable to convince the uni side, thus they commenced the game with a kicky-back and five outfield players.

Immediately Poole set up to defend but found themselves trailing two goals behind within the space of two minutes. Poole tried to gain a foothold in the game, however it wasn’t before long that Southampton Uni would gain a third, then a fourth, and fifth respectively.

Nevertheless, Poole finished the half without conceding further, at which point the calvary arrived to help try rescue the game.

Full of optimism, the late-arrivals had an instant impact, raising the tempo of the game which had otherwise been slow. Intricate play between the fleet of forward players resulted in a short corner, which they all gathered around to watch Dan P despatch perfectly into the corner, in all so familiar fashion.

Poole continued to push-hard for more goals, with an air of urgency filling up the players lungs and passion in their hearts. Next a short corner cannoned past the keeper’s right post to make it two, with Poole requiring three more to level the score-line.

Dan p rapidly claimed a hat-trick and Poole’s third, which gave Poole a great lift going into the final 15 minutes of the game, as Martin closely observed his stopwatch to keep us on track to win.

However, a nervy few minutes added salt into their wounds, letting two goals slip past without reply. Despite this misfortune, Poole never allowed their heads to get down and rallied forwards in search of more goals.

Ben P slammed home his shot from the top of the D to lessen the deficit, but this would provide the last memorable moment of the game as Poole fell to only their fourth defeat of the season, while Southampton University claimed just their fourth home victory for the season.

There’s still three games remaining in the current season and also have a cup fixture to look forward to tomorrow, so let’s not get our heads down just yet and try to finish as strongly as possible.

MOM - Team?

DOD - Teamo APP - told us the game started at 1pm.

Match Report by Chris Bird.


Poole came up against a Yeovil team where it was very close last time at 3-2 but this time was different. For starters we didn't need Alex W being a liability at the back as we won 6-0 and that meant a beautiful clean sheet. They were destroyed! Back into third place.
