Sunday 13th February saw an all-round wonderful team effort from Callum the goal keeper to centre forward Zac Cooper. The match started in cold and wet conditions but Romsey took the game straight to Fareham. Romsey dominated the match with Sam Bishop, Tim Loescher and Sean Rademaker commanding the centre of the field. The pressure on Fareham paid off with Romsey winning a short corner after 14mins. A classic short corner routine saw the ball fly towards Sean who took into the D and smack it home, hitting the back board, goal. In the second third the match was more even and the only difference between the two teams was a goal given to Fareham from a short corner. The ball was hit to the top of the D and a sweep shot, hitting the ball, which went in off the under side of the cross bar and pinging into the back of the net. This proved to be an unstoppable strike!  Romsey fought back with a tireless Ben Manning in the middle of the park winning everything that came near him. Romsey cleared their lines with a fifty meter hit into the oppositions twenty-five. Oliie Bryant gave chase making an incredibly fast 40 meter dash, spurred on from the vocal Romsey supporters, to catch the Fareham defence with the ball. Romsey were unable to capitalise. The last third saw Fareham dominate as a tired and wet Romsey tried to keep the match from slipping away. Man of the Match, Alex Buck, played a storming game through out clearing the ball from the right back position countless times. A special mention for both Toby Clemmett playing his first game for the Club who bravely played on after taking the ball in the face and Callum clearing his goal multiple times through out.

Fareham got a fortunate goal two minutes from time with a well struck shot from the top of the D heading high towards Callum’s top left corner. An out stretched hand, save? Callum got to it only to deflect the ball back towards his right hand post, goal. Romsey deserved more from the game but the supporters were proud of a fine performance by all.
