Romsey 2nd XI made it 3 wins out of three with another one sided victory over another weakened team in Hampshire Division 5.

Romsey’s 15 man squad was to much for the US Portsmouth team who had no subs and who couldn’t cope with Romsey’s quick play.

Romsey missed a couple of good chances early on Greig Stewart playing in Colin Harwood, but his first time shot shaved the outside of the post, then Stewart played in Tim Bailey who passed to Harwood rather than shooting and the ball went wide.

A great move starting with James croft-Baker playing in Harwood, whose weighted pass to Bailey was touched passed the keeper allowing 15 year old Charlie Harrigan to sweep in the opener reverse stick.

Romsey doubled their lead when a passing move was finished off with a rasping shot by James Fraser, and James Boggis coolly slotted in the third with the keeper out of his goal.

It was 4-0 when Man of the Match Harrigan applied a killer touch to a long defence splitting pass from skipper Stuart Robertson.

Romsey confused themselves by having duplicate numbered shirts on the pitch and the US players took advantage to score a well worked goal for a 4-1 half time score.

It was more one way traffic in the second half and as the US players tired and Romsey rotated their players Bailey scored from a penalty corner strike, then he passed to Harwood from another corner to make it 6-0 and ace marksman Carl Hendy scored twice late on for 8-1.

It was only an amazing save off the line by a last ditch defender, putting the ball over that bar, that stopped Charlie Harrigan completing his hat trick after he took the ball round the keeper and swept the ball high towards the goal.
