Romsey 2nd XI made it two 5-0 victories in a row, with a convincing win over a weakened Winchester team.

It was very much one way traffic in the first 20 minutes, with Romsey creating a number of chances, James Fraser at centre forward was unable to convert and Greig Stewart and Tim Bailey were also denied. Stuart Robertson’s penalty corner shot was cleared off the line.

With Rob Kerr in central midfield controlling the game Romsey brought on Carl Hendy to play higher up, and soon after his introduction a move down the left by Stewart and Fraser saw a cross power across the D to Tim Bailey who controlled the ball and reverse stick shot in to the roof of the net for 1-0.

Romsey doubled their lead soon after, this time Stewart went all along the end of the pitch and crashed a cross to the far post that James Croft-Baker pushed over the line.

Winchester pressed to come back in to the game and Jacob Arney had to make a last ditch tackle to preseve the two goal advantage, but Adam Sankey was only called in to action to make one excellent save as Romsey weathered the storm.

In the second half Romsey pressed home their squad advantage with some super moves. Romsey went 3-0 up when Greig Stewart played in Colin Harwood at the top of the D, as the Winchester keeper advanced Harwood passed to Tim Bailey and he slotted the ball in for his second of the match.

With Jim Ponsford and Stuart Robertson calmly playing the ball at the back they set up Arney at left back to play in Croft-Baker at left half, he played the ball to Harwood who ran from his centre forward position out to the right wind, collecting the ball he drilled the ball to James Fraser taking out the last two defenders for Fraser to score with a reverse stick shot for 4-0.

Romsey cemented victory with a Carl Hendy deft touch from a Fraser cross, to make the final score 5-0.
