Romsey’s awful November was complete when they fell to their fourth successive defeat, a month in which they picked up just one point from a possible 15 and fell from top spot to 6th in Hampshire Division 5.

Romsey were on the back foot from an impressive Gosport side who looked far stronger than their position in the league suggested. They took the lead early on when Romsey allowed a Gosport player to run on and on in to the circle and fire in to the goal.

Romsey equalised when James Fraser reverse stick shot was deflected in to the goal off a defender, and Romsey then had a period of the game in control. Colin Harwood intercepted the ball and played in Toby Hill to shoot and then Sam Barcia was unlucky when his shot just inside the post was turned round the post by the Gosport keepers outstretched pad.

Romsey’s bright spot was young Tom Croft-Baker in central midfield holding his own in an encounter that became more physical as the half wore on.

Gosport regained the lead when they were awarded a penalty corner and skipper Stuart Robertson was unable to clear the ball off the goal line and it squeezed over the line.

2-1 down at half time Romsey had only a few chances in the second half, Carl Hendy was thwarted by the Gosport keeper in a one one one, and Jacob Arney and Chris Arnold both teased the Gosport defence but couldn’t create a goal.

Gosport scored twice more in the second half and were worthy winners, although the 4-1 scoreline was slightly flattering.

Romsey’s last game before Christmas is away at Salisbury as they look to stop their poor form continuing.
