New Milton Town Ladies 2 Southampton Saints Girls and Ladies 1

The Hampshire Football Association's Under 14's Girls Cup Final took place at Alton Town Football Club on Saturday 24th March 2018.

New Milton had the edge in possession during the first half and Jodie Exley had an early shot which went just wide from a long way out.

A good move resulted in New Milton's Lucy White also putting a shot wide and Exley tried to chip the 'keeper but again the ball went over the bar. As New Milton continued to press Saints 'keeper, Lillie Hansford, made a good save from a corner.

Against the run of play, however, it was the Saints who took the lead in the 24th minute when Kira McClatchey ran from deep to slot home.

The second half followed the pattern of the first with New Milton having the majority of the play but on this occasion they made it pay. They started strongly with Alex Avoth putting a free kick just wide. They equalised in the 47th minute when Freya Fish finished a good move with an angled shot.

The Saints hit back and on the break Larnie Bisson shot over the bar.

The cup was won for New Milton in the 59th minute when after a great individual run by Jodie Exley saw her score with a dipping shot from outside the box.

The Referee was Rachel Richards, she was assisted by Nicola Ankers and Emma Simpson. The Reserve Official was Georgia Bowers.

The Player of the Match Award went to Jodie Exley of New Milton Town Ladies.

New Milton Town Ladies' squad – Safia Tailamon, Eva Connolly, Caitlin Youles, Lacey Hammond, Nancy Gray, Regan Warner, Emillie Castagna, Alex Avoth, Freya Fish, Lucy White, Jodie Exley, Summer Kilby and Pearl Mortimer.

Fleet Town Girls Youth 1 A.F.C. Bournemouth CST Girls 4

The Hampshire Football Associations Girls Under 16's Cup Final took place on Sunday 25th March 2018 at Alton Football Club.

The first half proved to be a competitive affair with neither side being able to gain dominance but it was Fleet who were the first to score when Bournemouth failed to clear and Molly Jones took advantage to score from close range (21st minute).

The equaliser came in similar circumstances when Fleet could not clear their box which resulted in a cross that deceived everyone giving Erin Thickett an easy tap-in at the far post in the 32 second minute.

It did not take long for Bournemouth to take the lead when Lily Angel-Sinclair stole in on the blind side to score with an angled shot (36th minute).

The second half saw an end to end game again with defences on top. Neither side created chances and it looked as if the match would finish with a narrow victory until Thickett struck twice for Bournemouth in the last two minutes. 

In the the 78th minute she trapped the ball, turned her opponent and out paced the defence to net with a flick over the 'keeper. She sewed up the cup victory in the 80th minute with a similar goal out distancing a defender and scoring from close range.

The Player of the Match award went to Bournemouth's Erin Thickett.

The Referee was Mollie Renshaw who was assisted by Lauren Tarling and Kate Oliver. The Reserve Official was Michelle Garrett.

The match was sponsored by Savvy Accounting Solutions and the match ball was sponsored by ECU Worldwide .

Saturday Junior A Hampshire Cup Final sponsored by Child Trophies

Broughton 2-0 TwentyTen

Broughton were victorious in a closely fought final thanks to two first half goals by Joe Windibank and some marvellous saves from goalkeeper and eventual man of the match, Ashley Kelley.

It was a bright start by TwentyTen. Within two minutes winger, Christian Cox was causing the Broughton defence all sorts of problems, using his pace to burn down the wing and put crosses in the box. Five minutes in and TwentyTen were dominant and the players were very settled on the ball; summed up when Lucas Pickett picked the ball up and hit an absolute rocket towards the goal which was excellently dealt with by the goalkeeper.

Despite all the early pressure coming from TwentyTen, donning a dark purple kit, it was Broughton who took the lead against the run of play after seven minutes. Joe Windibank was played in and drilled his effort at the goalkeeper before eventually cleverly smashing the rebound into the top left corner. The goal settled Broughton, and the game down. However, TwentyTen could and perhaps should've been level within five minutes. The ball came to Joe Hill on the edge of the six yard box but wouldn't quite drop for him and as a result couldn't get any power on his effort. Within a minute, TwentyTen were in one-on-one again but Christian Cox couldn't find a way past Ashley Kelley, who had made two unbelievable saves within twelve minutes. This game started at 100mph and the man behind all of TwentyTen’s attacks was that man Christian Cox, who looked like he was about to equalise after eighteen minutes before Joe Windibank made a last ditch challenge even Sergio Ramos would’ve been proud of. 

However, Broughton really took the game by the scruff of the neck and started causing TwentyTen real problems with Ben Rankin, Dan Lang and Liam Madigan wasting good chances in quick succession. Despite all these chances, it was Dan Lang again who put the best chance of the game wide. Jamie Beard misjudged the bounce of the ball on the uneven pitch but Lang couldn’t quite angle it in the bottom corner. It wasn’t long before they did make it 2-0 though. After thirty nine minutes Lang stood his man up on the right side of the penalty area, beat him for pace and whipped in a delightful cross which left Joe Windibank, who must have now been dreaming of a cup final hat trick, an easy tap in. It could and perhaps should have been three before half time as Lang, who was growing more into the game with every passing minute, played in Zack Mills who could only fire the ball straight at the goalkeeper. However Broughton had to settle for just the two goal lead heading into the break.

TwentyTen started the second half sloppily with Rich Gary attempting to head it back to the keeper just for it to dribble out for a corner which was cleared by Ryan Lupton. It was Lupton himself who set up the first chance of the half as he laid the ball on a plate for Joe Osborne who just had to put the ball either side of the keeper for a certain goal but knocked it straight down the middle. It was a fairly drab second half with Broughton happy to settle for the lead they had and TwentyTen not managing to force the issue. Of the few chances there were in the second half though, they all fell to TwentyTen. Within the last fifteen minutes TwentyTen had three glorious chances which fell to Carl Pearson, James Arnold and Mikey Davies. They were all guilty of taking too many touches and with every chance that went missing it seemed less and less likely it was going to be their day.

Overall, both teams gave it their all and Broughton were deserved of the victory. On another day TwentyTen could have had five or six goals but it just wasn’t to be their day. Ashley Kenney in the Broughton net refused to be beaten, Joe Windibank had the goal-scoring touch and Kris Cumberbatch was a rock in the middle of the field and Broughton fully deserved the trophy. 

Saturday Junior B Hampshire Cup Final Sponsored by Child Trophies

Hythe Aztecs 1-4 Ventnor Reserves

The Saturday Junior B Hampshire Cup Final was comfortably won by a strong Ventnor Reserve team backed by their army of loyal fans who had made the short trip over from the Isle of Wight.

It was Hythe who had the brighter start, keeping possession well and working their way into the game. After 4 minutes the ball was played into danger man Michael Baker who played a gorgeous flicked pass into Dan Hockley who couldn't quite get the ball under control in a dangerous position and it trickled out of play.

That chance really woke Ventnor up and after 8 minutes they took the lead through Kieron Allen. A corner was played in which Allen got his head to which forced a fine save from keeper Scott Mansfield but Allen was quickest to react and smashed in the rebound to the delight of the travelling fans. The goal rocked Hythe and within a minute they had given away a penalty after a rash challenge. Harley Turner stepped up to take the penalty and calmly slotted the penalty into the bottom left hand corner. 2-0 to Ventnor after just 9 minutes. 

In the next 20 minutes Hythe really stepped up their game and had 3 glorious chances to get back in it. In the 18th minute their striker got through 1-on-1 but instead of shooting tried to square it to his team mate but Lee Crown was there to make an excellent clearance. Just 5 minutes later and it was once again Crown to the rescue. Aaron Knappet was played through and just as he was about to pull the trigger, Crown made a wonderful slide tackle to deny a certain goal. After 32 minutes Hythe danger man, Michael Baker played through and tried a wonderful lob over the keeper which dropped just wide of the goal. 

Winger Lloyd Barrier made it 3-0 just 2 minutes later. A brilliant team move saw the left winger played through on the left side of the area and expertly finished with a ‘Bale-esque’ finish into the bottom corner. The players were now really enjoying the occasion and should’ve been 4-0 up after 36 minutes but Billy Creighton couldn’t get his effort on target. 

Just before half time Hythe Aztecs were pushing to get 1 back before half time but Matt Gifford make an excellent save from Dan Hockley to keep his and his defenses clean sheet in tact heading in to half time.

Ventnor started the 2nd half in the same way they started the 1st, looking for goals. However, with the game effectively won greed creeped into their play. In the 51st minute Liam Harper should’ve squared to Harley Turner for an open goal but went for goal himself instead. Turner was visibly angry despite being so far ahead. 

Hythe didn't have their first chance of the 2nd half until the 60th minute when Michael Baker played Brett Withey in who slotted just wide. It could’ve been interesting if Hythe had made it 3-1 with 30 minutes to go but it was Ventnor who scored next to make it 4-0 after 65 minutes. Liam Harper, who had finally got himself on the score sheet, showed some quick feet on the edge of the 6 yard box to create a yard of space for himself and slot the ball into the bottom corner. 

With the game now won the Ventnor defence would’ve been keen to keep a clean sheet. However, within 1 minute of going 4-0 up Michael Baker finally got the goal his performance deserved. With the score at 4-1 neither side showed any more ambition to go for more goals and that was how the game finished with a well organised team performance enough to win the final comfortably for Ventnor, who I’m sure celebrated long into the night with their loyal fans who had made the trip and created a party atmosphere. 

The Man of the Match was Ventnor Reserve’s left back Lee Crown.

The Referee was Luke Pullen with his Assistants Allistair Taylor and Arron Tree and the Reserve Official Rado Iliev.

The match was sponsored by Child Trophies and ball sponsor Trophyman.

Hythe and Dibden Youth 1 Oakwood Youth 0

The Hampshire Football Association's Saturday Under 12's Cup Final, the first nine-a -side final of the season, took place at Alton Football Club on Saturday 24th March 2018 and as neither side had won the cup previously a new name was about to be engraved on the trophy.

There was even play in the first ten minutes or so as both sides settled to playing on a 3G pitch. Oakwood were unfortunate to lose Alan Cichy in the 16th minute due to a dislocated knee which resulted in him being taken to hospital. They were forced into making a non-technical substitute with George Day coming on.

Although neither side was able to dominate the half, it was Oakwood's 'keeper, Finley Totten, who was the busiest making two good saves but which resulted in him coming a long way off his line to clear, one on one, from an advancing attacker.

Hythe started the second half on the attack with a good shot from Leo Rayes which was well saved.

The Hythe, 'keeper, Charlie Fry was called into action to stop a breakthrough as Oakwood hit back and Danny Carter hit the side netting.

As time began to tick away it was all Hythe as they pressed forward but they were not able to get that 'killer' shot in. Oakwood made a number of substitutes when two minutes of added time was announced, probably to get their best penalty takers on the pitch in case of the dreaded penalty shoot-out.

This proved to be not needed as a good run by Hythe's Adam Larmond, his assist falling to Lenny Lowry who won the cup with a close range shot in the dying seconds of the match.

The Man of the Match award went to Hythe's Luke Blackman.

Hythe and Dibden Youth's squad – Charlie Fry, Luke Blackman, Ethan Hartness, Charlie Cox, Brandon Pester, Yuvraj Landa, Harley Daish, Archie O'Donovan,Harrison Ovenden, Lenny Lowry, Ollie Miell, Leo Rayes and Adam Larmond.

Oakwood Youth's squad – Finley Totten, Reece Williams, Lewis Dilley, Lewis Colvin, George Day, Connor Underhill, Bobby Gorman, Joe Ryan, Danny Carter, Jaimie Arnold, Alan Cichy, Freddie Leeder, Lewis Puleo and Oliver Tartaglia

Oakwood Youth 2 Eldon Celtic Juniors 2 – 4-3 after penalties

The Hampshire FA's first cup final of the 2017-2018 season took place on Alton F.C.'s 3G-pitch on Saturday 17 March. Despite flurries of snow and a biting wind both sides played their part in an interesting final.

Oakwood had the misfortune to lose their goalkeeper, Kai Phillips, in the first minute of the game when he was injured making a save.

Eldon had the most of the early play but it was Oakwood who scored first when they broke down the flank and Charlie Glasspool converted the cross (12th minute).

A few minutes later it looked as if Eldon would equalise when the 'keeper came too far off his line and failed to clear leaving Gatlin O'Donkor clear in front of an empty goal but he somehow managed to hook the ball wide. Thankfully he redeemed himself in the 35th minute with a fine solo equaliser. A minute later they took the lead when Henry Mott picked up a rebound off the 'keeper and netted from close range.

An evenly matched match in the second half denied both sides the opportunity to score as defences dominated and it looked as if Eldon would hang onto their lead but in the 70th minute the game turned Oakwood's way. Eldon's Nathaniel Boekye was given a straight red card for a rather clumsy tackle on the edge of the box denying a goal chance. Oakwood's Owen Walsh scored direct from the free kick (71st minute).

Neither side could force the winner in the few seconds remaining of the match and the final went to the dreaded penalty shoot off. Oakwood built up a 3-1 but were pegged back to 3-3 after the first five designated spot kicks. Eldon failed with their sixth kick and Oakwood won the cup with theirs.

The Referee was Harvey Small and his Assistants were Nicholas Hiron and John Holden. The fourth official was Patrick McGonigle. The match was sponsored by Savvy Accounting Solutions and the match balls were sponsored by the Martins Group and Southern Ground Care. The Man of the Match award went to Oakwood's Owen Walsh.

Laverstock and Ford Youth 0 Curley Park Rangers Youth 0 – Curley Park won 5-3 on penalties

The Hampshire Football Association's Under 14's Cup Final took place at Alton Town Football Club on Saturday 24th March 2018. Ironically neither finalist was a Hampshire club, one coming from Wiltshire and the other from Surrey, the rules, however, allow border clubs a choice of county cup they wish to compete in.

Curley had the best of the play in the first half without putting the Laverstock 'keeper, Finley Belbin, under pressure. Despite the Curley pressure it was Laverstock who came the closest to a goal when Billy Campbell-Smith lifted the ball just over the bar in a rare breakaway.

Just before half time Belbin made a good save from a Curley Park free kick.

The second half was more of an open game with Laverstock showing much more penetration but like the first half neither side really created goal bound chances.

Curley's 'keeper, Cameron Cavin, saved a free kick from Jake Bartlett and Curley's Ashton Prescott had a chance but he sliced a shot when well placed and that was it , no goals at full time. The destination of the cup came down to the dreaded penalty shoot out.

With score at 4-3 in Curley's favour, they had the opportunity of taking their fifth statutory penalty first and scored thus making it impossible for Laverstock to equalise and so the cup went to Surrey.

The Man of the Match award went to Curley's Kai Hobbs.

The Referee was Kai Morgan and he was assisted by Charles Ellis and Toby Drain. The Reserve Official was George Redford.

Laverstock and Ford Youth's squad – Finley Belbin, Billy Campbell-Smith, William Watterson, Liam O'Riordan, Christian Roberts, Ales Wood, Jake Bartlett, Stuart Cross, Sam Shering, Jay Newman, Jack Vincent, Carlos Fernando, Aston Mussell, George Goff, and Cameron Thatcher.

Newport (IoW) 2 Havant and Waterlooville Youth 1

The Hampshire FA's Saturday Under 15's cup final took place on Alton F.C.'s 3G-pitch on Saturday 17 March. The second cup final of the day saw a little snow but the players had to cope with an ever increasing bitter wind.

The first half of the game was evenly matched and the only goal of the half came in 22nd minute when Havant's 'keeper Kiegan Menham failed to clear, kicking the ball to Newport's Ben Snow who chipped it into the back of the net.

The second half followed the pattern of the first with neither side able to dominate although Havant had the better of the chances but, like the first, saw Newport score first. A great run from deep into the Havant half by Jaik Holton took him past two defenders and score from the edge of the box (46th minute).

Although Havant continued to press some steady work by Newport's 'keeper Fraser Law and centre half Harry Creek denied them chances after chance.

A minute from time Havant got the goal they deserved with a flying header by Sonny Harnett-Balkwill but although they continued to press in the dying second they failed to get the equaliser.

The Referee was Chris Horlock and his Assistants were Sam Cunningham and Joe Champion. The Reserve Official was Jamie Newell. The final was sponsored by Savvy Accounting Solutions and the match balls were sponsored by the Typeface Group and European Communications.

The Man of the Match Award went to Newport's Jake Wright.

Widbrook United Youth 0 Eldon Celtic Juniors 2

The Hampshire F.A.'s third cup final of the day took place on Alton F.C.'s 3G-pitch on Saturday 17 March. The match commenced as the second snow shower of the day began but despite the bitter cold both sides played some attractive football.

Eldon dominated play in the first half with at least a dozen shots on goal, three of which Widbrook's ' keeper, Ashley Wright, made superb saves, another shot hit the post and the remainder went close but not close enough.

Widbrook withstood the pressure for 23 minutes before the inevitable goal went in, a great long range shot by Eldon's Archie Hase.

From the kick off of the second half it looked to be the same as the first when early on Hase rattled the Widbrook bar with a free kick. After that, however, Widbrook certainly played better but nevertheless they hardly bothered the Eldon defence as they again mounted attack after attack. If the Widbrook 'keeper received the plaudits for a good first half, he deserved even more for a brilliant second half which eventually won him the Man of the Match Award sponsored by Go Ape and Perform Southampton.

With time running out Eldon won the cup with a goal from Jack Amitaga in the last minute.

The Referee was Daniel Pescott, his Assistants were Scott Moore and Morgan Springer. The Reserve Official was David Prescott. The final was sponsored by Savvy Accounting Solutions.

Widbrook United Youth squad – Ashley Wright, Harry Penney, Sam Whitlock, Jack Kaminski, Ethan Dyer, Ryan Diboil, Lloyd Paxton, Cain Holmes, Charlie Evans, Tom Seve, Eddie Garrett, Josh Poole, Aiden Rowe, Kai Gateshill, Tom Hancock and David Rutten.

Pickwick Youth 2 Hurstwood Rangers 4

The Hampshire Football Association's Sunday Under 12's Cup Final took place on Sunday 25th March 2018 at Alton Football Club.

Hurstwood's Trent Groizard started the game in devastating form scoring a hat trick in the first 16 minutes and in effect gifting the cup to his club.

He hit the net in the 3rd minute when he picked up a clearance ran on and beat the 'keeper from close range. Number two came in the 6th minute when a miskick in midfield let him in again and again he found the back of the net.

Although two down Pickwick did not give up and the Hurstwood 'keeper, Lloyd Britcher, made two good saves.

A good run by Hurstwood's Matthew Pates saw his shot rebound off Pickwick's 'keeper Lloyd Hughes, only for the ball to fall to Groizard who scored his third goal in the 16th minute.

Hurstwood went four up in the 24th minute when Teddy Beveridge converted a cross from the flank.

Despite the half time scoreline, the match still had a sting in its tail. Pickwick struck in the 32nd minute when Blaze Pearce after a good move. The goal gave Pickwick hope and for a period the Hurstwood 'keeper, Lloyd Britcher, came under pressure and made several saves, one in particular a blockbuster from Patrick Scarborough which looked a certain goal.

The pressure paid off in the 46th minute when a break from deep set Alex Hume, his shot was saved by the goalkeeper but the ball rebounded back to him and he netted.

Just before full time Hurstwood conceded a penalty but Britcher pulled off a superb save from the spot.

The Man of the Match award went to Hurstwoods Trent Groizard.

The Referee was Tom Jackson who was assisted by Daniel Butcher and Ben Le Flem. The Reserve Official was Joshua Miller. The match ball was sponsored by Southampton Solent University.

Bournemouth Electric 2 Gosport Borough Youth 2 – Gosport won 8-7 on penalties

The Hampshire Football Association's Sunday Under 14's Cup Final took place on Sunday 25th March 2018 at Alton Football Club.

Both sides created early chances. A penetrating run by Oliver Alkivades for Bournemouth was sliced wide and Gosport's Alan Richards, with only the 'keeper to beat, shot straight at him. Gosport created another decent chance which Jadore Gordon scooped over the bar.

The breakthrough came in the 19th minute when good control and a run resulted in Alkivades scoring from an acute angle. Although from this goal until half time Gosport had the better of the attacks, it took them almost to the whistle to equalise. Right out of the blue Brandon McKinnon put in a shot from deep in Bournemouth's half and caught 'keeper, Ethan Spittles, a little off his line with a fine dipping shot.

Bournemouth started the second half with a quick goal (38th minute). Alkiviades won the ball in midfield, took a run and when in the clear, shot. Harry Page smothered the ball but could not hold on and Alkiviades bundled it home.

Gosport were back in the game a minute later when a mix-up in the box let in Jadore Gordon for a tap in.

Both sides went for the winner but neither succeeded and at the final whistle they faced a penalty shoot out to decided the match.

After the statuary five spot kicks had been taken the score stood at 4-4. At this point the 'sudden death' rule came into force and unfortunately for Bournemouth it was them who exited the cup by 8-7.

The Man of the Match went to Gosport Borough's goalkeeper, Harry Page.

The Referee was Callum Sones and he was assisted by Ben Smith and Jake Snook. The Reserve Official was Liam Bertram.

The match was sponsored by Savvy Accounting Solutions and the match ball was sponsored by Charters Estate Agents.

Row United Vets Reserves 4 Badshot Lea Vets 3

The Hampshire Football Association, Sunday Veterans Cup Final took place on a very cold and windy night on Thursday 22nd March 2018. The match was hosted by by Hartley Wintney Football Club.

Despite the weather conditions which made the control of the difficult, both teams put on an entertaining game of football.

The opening goal came early, in the 16th minute when a long range shot caught the Badshot 'keeper, Dom Gaskill, too far off his line and in the scramble to clear the ball Chris Maunder pounced to net.

A couple of minutes later Badshot were back back on equal terms when Craig Moore scored a great individual goal after a run from midfield and beat 'keeper Mark Lloyd with an angled shot.

A miss-kick in the 37th minute gifted the lead to Badshot when Phil Arnot picked up the loose ball and slammed it into the empty net.

Just before half time the game swung again as a speculative shot from Row's Paul Xiberras put them back on even terms.

Row went ahead early in the second half when warren Hopkins picked up a rebound from a free kick (51st minute). They increased their lead in the 65th minute when a quickly taken free kick by Xiberras left the Badshot defence and goalkeeper flat-footed and no-one moved as the shot zipped into the back of the net.

Badshot did not give up, however, and Martin Pernass headed home two minutes into added time but it was too late – the cup was won!

The Man of the Match was awarded to Row's Paul Xiberras.

The Referee was Anthony Smith who was assisted by David Brindle and Gary Cash and the Reserve Official was Jon Dolbear.

The match was sponsored by RS Purdey and the match ball was sponsored by HGW Solicitors.

Row United Vets Reserves' squad – Mark Lloyd, Roger Champion, Warren Hopkins, David Lloyd, Elliott Lavery, Chris Maunder, Liam Jones, Gary Wollen, Ronnie Lynch, Paul Reeves, Nigel Gatehouse, Paul Xiberras, Darren Cooper, Anthony Millerick, Carl Smial and Chris Hudson.
