The only game on Monday saw two clubs without a win, Whitchurch United & Andover Town, meet at Longmeadow in a Division One clash. Whitchurch won the game with a Kieron Fuller goal midway through the second half.

On Tuesday there were 3 F.A. Cup replays and there was no doubt about the performance of the night as Division 1, AFC Stoneham, went to AFC Portchester and won 3-0 with goals from Sergio Caballero, Alex Welch and Matt Palmer. The other two results were also away wins with Hamble winning 2-0 at Alresford (Nathan Lynch & John Cole) and Brockenhurst defeating Christchurch by the same score with goals by James Thomson & Matt Sheedy.

Also on Tuesday there were 5 Division One games – all of which are local derbies. The goal scoring performance of the night was by Romsey who put 6 past Fawley – five different scorers including a double by Harry Draycott. Ben Bolton scored for Fawley. The largest crowd of the evening (152) was at The Dell for the Wiltshire derby between Laverstock & Amesbury this despite Salisbury being home on the same evening. The visitors won a close game 2-1 with Robbie Owen scoring the winner.

Petersfield built on their Cup win by beating Alton 3-1 with the pick of the goals being by Harry Tremlett. New Milton won the local derby with Ringwood 3-1 to maintain their good start to the season. Two goals by Ben Cooper at the start of each half were decisive and Downton came from behind to defeat Totton & Eling 2-1 with goals from Charlie Cooper & Shaun Prentice.

On Wednesday there was a further F.A. Cup replay when Lymington broke their string of 3 draws with a 5-1 win against Sandhurst who took an early lead. Zak Pickett and Taz Roberts replied before half time and further goals by Charlie Willets (2) and Mike Gosney completed the victory. In Division One former Saints player, Jo Tessem scored the winner for Hythe & Dibden against Verwood. Both teams had exchanged goals in the middle of the first half.

Friday saw Christchurch learn the hard reality of Premier Division life. Sholing were coasting home on the back of two 1st half goals by Bradley Targett & Dan Mason when Grant Cormack gave Priory a glimmer of home with an 80th minute goal. But a Lee Wort hat trick between the 82nd & 88th minute meant Sholing ran out 5-1 winners.
