Bournemouth Electric 4 Bridgemary Buccanneers 1
A minute's silence was observed before kick-off in memory of Robin Osborne, the President of the Hampshire Football Association, who had passed away recently.
The match was played at the Winklebury Football Complex in Basingstoke on Sunday 15th May 2022 and was sponsored by Savvy Accountancy Solutions.
The match started on a gloomy morning and ended in heavy rain which did not make it easy for the players.

The Buccaneers hit back when Jayden Keteku made a penetrating run into the penalty box, but unfortunately finished poorly. In an another attack, Daniel Swaddling broke through but the Electric's 'keeper Jacob Pratt saved well.
As the game switched to the other end, Albie Turner went close for the Electric.
A penalty appeal was turned down when the Buccaneers' Jayden Keteku appeared to have been pulled down in the box.
The Electric went two-up in the 40th minute when Turner crossed and Whetton scored from close range.
Early in the second half the Buccaneers' Billy Morris had a chance from a cross, but put his shot over the bar and a few minutes later had a good shot from a corner well saved.
The Electrics scored their third goal in the 54th minute when Charlie Harries scored from close range but the Buccaneers replied within a minute when Ellis Thorne scored after a good move had set him up.
