The U12 Boys continued that great form with a smashing performance against Salisbury.

Romsey started well and quickly maintained possession and passed the ball well. Harry Croft-Baker and Alex Mills on the wings provided great outlets for midfield dynamo Ben Davidson to feed. The defence was marshalled effectively by Tom Croft-Baker with wing backs Ben Whitaker and Noah Cooper stifling the Salisbury front line.

Romsey’s first goal came when Callum Robertson played a strong pass into the D that Ben Davidson picked up and shot hard at the visiting keeper. His shot was half saved but Morgan Robertson was quickest to react and pushed the ball into the vacant goal.

A few minutes later that ball was again driven into the Salisbury D after an exchange of passes between Thomas Edwards and Oscar Mills. The ball found a visiting foot and a short corner was awarded. An accurate injection and firm shot were initially parried by the Salisbury defence but again Romsey were the sharper and this time Matt Loveday picked up the rebound and slotted home.

After the break Salisbury came out revitalised and Romsey in contrast lost some of their shape and composure. As a result the visitors were much more dangerous and they made a number of good goal scoring opportunities. If it were not for the excellent Hal Cross in goal Salisbury would have surely scored more than their one goal.

Conceding seemed to bring Romsey to their senses though and two quick goals from Art Barcia, one from open play, the other when he picked up a short corner rebound made the game safe for the home team. The scoring was finally finished off though by star man Jake Rowland who broke free from midfield, powered into the D and smashed home an unstoppable shot.

This fine performance by Romsey has secured their place at the top of their division.
