FDSFL REP 1 HAMPSHIRE POLICE 0

A fast paced, entertaining and closely fought match but one lapse of concentration and the Police Vets Team were bang to rights. A goal from Paul Curtain was enough to unlock the thin blue line 20 minutes in to the match. The visitors could do nothing about Nick Oram-Tooley speeding down the left wing at the Alton enclosure. A penalty appeal by the FDSFL Midfield was judged inadmissible by Referee Trevor Beard, meanwhile at the far end the host’s water tight defence meant the Police had no case and were unable to test keeper Keith Harrowing. After the match Jim McKell and Clive Ventham spent the evening behind bars but with good behaviour all were released at 11:30 to return home after a fine evening.

FDSFL were represented by Badshot Lea (Chopper, Jamie Gowring & Craig Moore), French Horn (Clive Ventham, Peter Browning, Semo, Steve Green & Steve Stairs), Headley (Dave Hawtin – Manager, Richard McCann & Nick Oram-Tooley), Hollybourne (Dan Biggar & Kim Lydon), Overton (Stuart Graham), Milford and Witley (Keith Harrowing) and Old Wimbledonian (Paul Curtain)

Wednesday 25th October FDSFL Veterans Rep Team V Gosport FC Veterans 

Goals from Nick Oram-Tooley (2), Keiron Robinson, Paul Seaman and Craig Moore sealed an impressive 5 - 2 victory for the Rep Team against Gosport Veterans under lights at Farnham Town FC.

The Match started at very fast pace with both sides passing and keeping possession well, good entertaining football. FDSFL defence looked solid though and after 20 mins we took the lead with a tap in after a goalmouth scramble. 5 minutes later we went 2 up when Oram-Tooley chipped a defender and keeper from edge of the box. A few minutes later a through ball was headed down, and laid off 1st time inside for Robinson to fire an unstoppable shot bottom corner from 20 yards, 3 nil. Five mins before the break we went 4 up, I missed it fetching a stray ball but by all accounts as good as 3rd. A couple of players came off nursing injuries at half time and were duly substituted. We lost a bit of shape and penetration in the 2nd half and Gosport pulled a goal back 20 mins in to the half. 10 minutes later it was 4-2 and Gosport were starting to grow in confidence. FDSFL re-grouped and with 5 mins remaining Moore was tripped in the box and got up to blast in the penalty to make the final score FDSFL 5, Gosport 2.
