With a number of new players making their debut for the Club, Romsey were able to field two teams for the first time this season.

Romsey A’s made a great start to the tournament with an excellent 2-0 win over Salisbury B.  Romsey took the lead early with a fantastic run and shot from Imogen H.  Romilly M added a second goal from close range after some great play from Sophie M to seal a comfortable win.

In the second game Romsey took on local rivals Southampton.  Tenacious tackling from Maya S, Camilla D and Clara F kept the pressure on the opposition, and persistence was rewarded when Romilly M scored her second goal of the tournament.

Game 3 proved very tough as Romsey came up against a very strong Bournemouth team.  Defenders Joe G, Annabel K and Romilly M were kept busy and did well to limit the scoreline to 2-0 to bournemouth.  Game 4 against Trojans ended in 1-0 defeat, but was a much closer game with Romsey unlucky not to equalise after a great late counter attack from Zach W.

Romsey went into the final game determined to end on a high. Camilla D and Clara F were again dominant in the midfield and it was an excellent team performance.  Romsey got the goal they deserved with just a couple of minutes remaining, when Joe G provided a precise pass across the D for Zach W to score.  The team can all be very proud of an excellent morning’s hockey!



First up for Romsey B’s were Salisbury. Once settled Romsey looked strong with the midfield of Anna S, Sophie and Oscar keeping possession well and passing the ball amongst themselves. After a few minutes of possession Caitlin broke free and made a great pass across the ‘D’ to Charlie for Romsey’s first goal. A couple of minutes later Caitlin again broke free with the ball, into the ‘D’ and scored. Final score 2-0.

Romsey’s next game was against Trojans. The initial few minutes of this game were end to end with Romsey’s defence of Oscar and Joseph well tested but very much up to the task. Romsey then took control making some nice passes through the midfield, this period of possession resulting in a goal for Elsie. After the goal Romsey’s confidence grew; following a great run Charlie scored Romsey’s second and was on the end of an Oscar pass for Romsey’s third of the game.

With confidence high Romsey started positively against Winchester. Midfielders Anna A, Evelyn and Oscar worked hard maintaining possession, following a great sequence of passes Oscar crossed from the right for Caitlin to score. After the restart Winchester were unable to clear the ball, Elsie popping up to score Romsey’s second from a Charlie pass.

The fourth game against hosts Southampton was highly competitive in the opening few minutes. Sophie made some great penetrating runs into the Southampton ‘D’ towards the end of the game, this pressure resulted in Caitlin scoring from an Oscar side line and Oscar scoring himself shortly afterwards.

Bournemouth were Romsey’s final and toughest opponents. Both teams showed great determination with the Romsey defence holding firm for most of the game. Unfortunately Romsey conceded late in the game suffering their only loss of the day.

Overall the team had a great morning putting into practice their skills learnt in training; movement off the ball, communication between players and passing all looked great as well as the spirit building within the team.

The final tournament for Romsey U10’s was hosted by Andover on a beautifully sunny Sunday morning. With Romsey just fielding one mixed squad for this tournament, the order of play highlighted some tough matches for the team.

The first game against Andover 1’s proved to be a fast paced game with Romsey having the majority of the possession throughout the match. Despite some great passing from Sebastian in midfield, the Romsey attack were unable to find the goal. Some excellent saves by Ellie in goal ensured that the game ended as a 0-0 draw.
The second game against Andover 3’s saw Harriet leading the Romsey attackers higher into the D which paid off with Isobel opening up the score for Romsey, followed by a lovely solo effort by Sebastian. With Romsey leading by 2 goals, Andover managed to claw a goal back, but some great teamwork and a well executed goal by Eva left the final score a well deserved 3-1 to Romsey.
After a couple of rest games, Romsey faced Andover 3’s for a second time in the tournament. Some fantastic tackles from Henry in defence, superb supporting play by Joe in midfield and excellent runs from Phoebe down the wing saw the Romsey team improve on their previous result and finish the game with a 3-0 win, with goals being scored by Phoebe, Isobel and Sebastian.
A change of goalies for Romsey halfway through the tournament saw Joe don the goalkeeping gear against an all boys Trojans side. Always strong opposition, Trojans put a lot of pressure on the Romsey team and despite some well timed tackles by Hattie and Phoebe in defence, the Trojan’s forwards managed to get themselves into good scoring positions twice during the match, giving the Romsey team their one and only defeat of the tournament.
Picking themselves up well after their loss, the Romsey team worked incredibly hard, with some great linking play between Ellie and Sebastian in midfield, moving the ball up to Harriet, Eva and Isobel in attack, enabling Eva to score her second goal of the tournament. Solid defensive work by Hattie, Henry and Phoebe ensured that Winchester were unable to retaliate, and when the Winchester attack did get through the Romsey defense, Joe was able to confidently clear the ball, helping secure a 1-0 win for Romsey.

Romsey’s final game of the tournament, and the season, was against New Forest. From the opening whistle Romsey played textbook attacking hockey, with Isobel poaching the ball from the New Forest team at pushback. Continued pressure throughout the match, and great passing and supportive play by the whole of the Romsey squad, led the team to their greatest win of the day. 2 goals for Eva and 2 for Isobel left both girls with 4 goals each in the tournament, and Romsey enjoying an incredible 4-0 win for their final match. The Under 10’s team came away from the Andover tournament with one of their best overall results of the season and every member of the squad was an absolute credit to the club, their coaches and their parents

Romsey u10 played their first tournament of the season on Sunday at Winchester. In their first match against Salisbury Romsey started strong, piling the pressure on the Salisbury defence. Midfield trio Marcus Lake, Sebastian Wells and Tristan Cuff dominated the attacking zone, feeding great passes into Zoë Phillips and Harriet Field upfront who worked hard to create chances on goal. Tilly Duncan and Toby Fuller were solid in defence, denying Salisbury any opportunities at goal on the counterattack. Romsey continued to pressure Salisbury’s defence and their hard work was soon rewarded after Marcus Lake managed to slip the ball past the keeper into the net to take the lead. Fighting to the finish Romsey went into full time with a 1-0 win. Next Romsey faced local rivals New Forest. Despite some great attempts on goal from Phoebe Lewis and Ellie Gibson, Romsey were unable to find the back of the net. Outstanding goalkeeping from Joe kept Romsey in the game, taking the team into full time with a hard fought 0-0 draw. Despite excellent team work throughout the game, Romsey were unlucky to concede two goals against a very strong Bournemouth side, losing 2-0. Against Bournemouth B the team linked up some beautiful passes in the attacking zone, taking them to a 3-0 victory with two great goals from Sebastian and a lovely strike from Zoë. Romseys next two games against tough opponents Trojans and Southampton ended in 3-0 and 2-0 losses. Romsey came back fighting in their last match against Winchester with newfound determination. Despite an early goal from the opposition, Romsey brought their A game spreading out the play well and driving the ball down the wings, allowing Romsey to take back the lead with two superb goals from Zoë and Marcus. Goalkeeping heroics from Joe at the back allowed Romsey to maintain the scoreline, going into full time with a 2-1 victory. Excellent team work throughout the day resulted in a great team performance.

Romsey u8s played their last tournament of the season on Sunday at Trojans. Romsey A played their first match against Trojans Artichokes. After conceding an unlucky goal in the first few minutes, Romsey began to settle into the game, piling on the pressure and pushing high into the Trojans defence. Great passing between Milly Chatterley and Ellie Gibson in midfield pushed Romsey forwards, soon leading to a great goal from Sebastian Wells to even out the score line. Well placed tackles from defenders Toby Fuller and Lucy Waldon prevented Trojans from furthering their score. Tristan Cuff in midfield fed the ball well out to the wings where forwards Harriet Field and Imogen Akerman worked hard to break through the Trojans strong back line. Despite their efforts Romsey were unlucky not to further their score, going into full time 1-1. Romsey B played the next match against Trojans B. Great teamwork between Tilly Duncan and Hattie Knapman in defence denied Trojans any early opportunities. The girls linked up well with midfielders Lewie Brown and Tom Coltart who showed great skill in dribbling the ball into the shooting zone and soon found Sebastian Wells on the right wing. Despite an impossibly tight angle a great strike from Seb found the back of the net, taking Romsey into the lead. Several great shots followed from Sofia Balasteros and Annabel Norman who were unlucky not to score. Zoe Phillips and Sebastian Wells in midfield worked well together, continuing to pile the pressure on the Trojans defenders. Fighting to the finish Romsey went into full time 1-0 up. Romsey A then beat Salisbury 1-0 with a superb goal from striker Marcus Lake, they then beat Southampton 1 5-0 with two goals from Marcus, two goals from Harriet and a great strike from Tristan. Against local rivals Winchester they drew 2-2 with another 2 goals from Marcus before drawing 1-1 with Bournemouth after another great goal from Sebastian. Romsey B beat Winchester 2-0 with goals from Marcus and a lovely shot from Tom before winning 5-0 against Southampton with goals from Sebastian, Tom and Sofia. Romsey B then won 5-0 against Trojans Carrots before drawing 1-1 in their penultimate game against Bournemouth. In their last game against Trojans Broadbeans Romsey won 3-0 with two goals from Seb and a well aimed shot from Zoe. A great team performance as a result of their hard work throughout the season.

Harry Appleton (5), Lewie Brown, Harry Channell, Oliver Channell, Milly Chatterley, Tilly Duncan, Harriet Field, Toby Fuller, Poppy Hanslip, Marcus Lake (2), Phoebe Lewis, William Norman (2), Zoe Phillips, Finn van Zyl and Sebastian Wells (1)

Romsey got off to a good start in their first match against Bournemouth.  Phoebe led the charge putting in some excellent tackles in midfield. Bournemouth then went on the counterattack. Oliver and Poppy stood firm and unfazed in the face of a persistent and determined Bournemouth onslaught.  After going down one goal, Romsey were back on the offensive.  Harry executed a deft pass to William who found the goal with a decisive strike to level the score.  The team all played well together and were unlucky to go down another goal on the break (1, 2).  In the next match against New Forrest Otters, Sebastian, Finn, Milly and Marcus played well in midfield passing the ball up to Lewie and Zoe playing up front.  Our defensive line up of Harriet and Toby showed great teamwork and coped very well with some strong attacks (0, 1).  Next up was Southampton A.   From the start Romsey were in control and most of the game was played in the Southampton half.  The match was clinched by a Harry Double Act.  Harry Appleton scored the goal, set up brilliantly by Harry Channell (1, 0). Our next match was against the Southampton B team.  Toby made a great run through midfield showing his newly acquired reverse stick skills.  He ran into heavy traffic just in front of the D and so couldn’t capitalise on his break (0,0). Against Southampton C, Harry Appleton quickly put us in front, followed shortly by a great goal from Marcus, both Romsey goals being set up by lovely passes from Toby. Trojans proved to be tough competition.  Marcus managed to put one away but the team was undone by three goal Trojan goals (1,3). Against Winchester the team fought resiliently. Phoebe made a couple of great passes in midfield which resulted in narrow misses at goal.  Continued pressure from Winchester produced a lot of great defending by the team and Tilly made a crucial clearance in the D to thwart another Winchester goal (0, 3). Romsey had a great match against the New Forrest Otters.  Our first goal was scored by William and was set up by Harry Appleton.  Marcus made an inspired run into space up the wing and crossed into Sebastian who had put himself in a great position within the D to score the second (2,0).  Against Winchester B, Harry Appleton skilled his way through midfield, evaded his defenders in the D and put away the winning goal for the team (1,0). The penultimate match was against Trojans B.  Harry Appleton opened Romsey’s account and increased our lead further by converting a great long pass up from Toby (2, 1). Our final match against the New Forest Badgers was a closely fought match with a few chances that we were unable to convert (0, 0).  Well done to the Romsey U8 squad, you showed great skills and enthusiasm today!
