Hamworthy United 10-0 Lower Parkstone CFC

Tuesday 5th September 2017

Bournemouth Senior Cup Round 1

After a 13 season break the Bournemouth Senior Cup was back on the football fixtures list and commenced the 2017 campaign with a round one match between Hamworthy United of the Sydenhams Wessex League and Bournemouth FL Saturday Premier Division side, Lower Parkstone CFC.

Lower Parkstone dealt with the early pressure from Wessex Premier Division side Hamworthy and created a handful of opportunities to open the scoring.

Sadly for the Bournemouth Hayward League team, Hamworthy’s Edgar Zanin and Mark Ford were soon smashing the ball into the Lower Parkstone net repeatedly netting two a piece in the first half to end the first period at 4-0 to the hosts.

In the second period, Lower Parkstone again started brightly but any realistic chances the Bournemouth League side might have had left were soon squashed before the hour mark with two more goals from Matt Ford and a third from Zanin for 7-0 lead. Hamworthy’s subs Sam Carter and Ben Lake added two more after they entered the fray before Lower Parkstone did get on the score sheet but it was only to put the ball into their own net and complete the double figures scoreline for Hamworthy.

The away side were a credit to themselves, despite the rapidly increasing scoreline, Lower Parkstone refused to cave in and kept working hard, as well as maintaining their discipline till the very end . despite some desperately tired legs and being increasingly outclassed by Hamworthy’s young guns.

In the end Hamworthy United breezed into the Quarter finals of the Bournemouth Senior Cup to await the draw along with Sway and Verwood Town who were drawn with Byes in the first round.

Bournemouth Senior Cup Round 1

report by Mike Cranidge


With conditions mimicking those of a minor hurricane, Bashley and Bournemouth Manor rewarded those hardy spectators willing to brave the elements with a hard-fought game of attractive cup football; the Wessex Premier team’s superiority on the night reflecting their higher position in the league structure.

Bashley kicked off with the swirling wind and driving rain in their faces and it took a good twenty minutes before    either side adjusted to the conditions. The home side then took the lead when Harrison White’s hopeful drive from 35 yards was helped into the net by a convenient deflection that left goalkeeper Aaron Parsons stranded. Ten minutes later Bashley added a second goal when Kabba Jack met White’s inch-perfect cross with a goal-poacher’s classic header from close range. Manor, who had been defending well, were not helped when they lost the services of the experienced ex-Bash and current New Milton manager, Shane Sheridan, forced by injury to leave the field.

Bashley made changes at half time with Tyrrell Sampson and Harry Cooper entering the deluge and within two minutes Sampson made it three by being in the right spot to give the final touch to a fine in-swinging corner launched by Conor Whiteley. Now riding the storm, Bashley took full advantage of the climatic conditions especially Lewis Aimson whose wind assisted punt from halfway line to net will be remembered for some time. This was closely followed by Whiteley adding his name to the scoresheet by judging the gale-force perfectly and netting direct from a corner. The sixth and final goal was another classic with Dan Thompson’s perfectly weighted cross being met on the run and hammered home by the fast advancing Rae’mur Henry. Despite the score line Manor were always in the game and never let the weather or the occasion affect their play. They fully deserved the applause given as they left the field of play.

Downton 3-1 Bournemouth Sports

Tuesday 19th September 2017

Bournemouth Senior Cup Round 1

This was a hard fought and spirited game, played in the best manner and was a credit to both teams and the competition. The BFL side had the better of large portions of the game with solid defensive play that quick transitioned into sustained direct attack, so much so that when Downton’s opening goal came, it was a surprise and against the run of play . It came on 9 minutes, Declan McGregor breaking free of his marker to smash the ball home passed Kyle Roberjot in the Sports goal.

Downton were never out of this game and buoyed by the their lead , now gained the upper hand if only slightly. Their quick passing and slow build up was in contrast to their opponents style and they went close a further two times but Roberjot was equal to their efforts. Sports were dangerous on the break always looked more likely to score when pressuring their opponents goal.and so it was when Ian Musselwaite got a superb equaliser on 37 minutes with a drive from 18 yards out that hit the top corner beyond Nathan Hall’s outstretched fingertips.

Half Time 1-1

Downton started the second half the brighter of the two sides and the addition of Ali Ward on 55 minutes for Dan Paddington gave the home side more zest down the left wing. But Musselwaite and Nathan Edwards led their teams fightback and the game remained up for grabs deep into the second half with both goalmouths being peppered regularly.

Downton got the go ahead goal from a corner when Ben Smith headed home in the 81st minute. As time ticked down, it was Sports who looked certain to get an equaliser and force extra time. Edwards was unstoppable on the right and the home side took to some desperate defending to keep the Bournemouth league side away from their goal, but the pressure was relentless and Downton were increasingly confined to their own 18 yard box On 88 minutes, the goal came but at the other end. A lofted clearance from the Downton box bounced past the Sports defender and Declan MacGregor , the only Downton man not in his penalty area, pounced on it and raced toward the Sports goa,l hotly pursued by a couple of defenders , but to no avail as McGregor fired into the net to settle the outcome.

Full time 3-1- a scorline that flattered the home side a little on the night, but it is they who go into the hat for the Quarter finals.

Tuesday 19th September 2017

Bournemouth Senior Cup Rd 1

Lymington Town have joined Hamworthy United and Bashley in the quarter finals of the Bournemouth Senior Cup after beating Bournemouth Electric at the Sports Ground.

Wessex League Premier Division side Lymington Town put themselves ahead after just three minutes as Charlie Willett forced in his first of three. A brilliant second followed from Nick Magee as he lobbed Ryan Thorpe with a beautiful goal midway through the half.

Lymington dominated the first 35 minutes of the game but Electric began to find their feet soon after, forcing Jordan Tewkesbury to tip their first shot on target over his bar.

The visitors would then have two efforts in the first two minutes of the second half but the hosts extended their lead further with an easy finish from Nathan Hurst.

Still Electric had chances to get back into the game including a flicked header and then a volley from Neil Stone that flashed over the home side's crossbar.

In the end, Lymington ran away with the game as Willett completed his hat-trick and Steve Walker added a further two, although Thorpe spoiled the latter's hat-trick attempt by pushing away a penalty.

Poole 4-0 Westover Bournemouth

Wednesday 20th September 2017

Bournemouth Senior Cup round 1

Poole Town FC are through to the quarter finals of the Bournemouth Senior Cup after beating a brave Westover Bournemouth side at the Black Gold Stadium.

Although officially it was Poole Town (1st) entered in the competition, the National League south side understandably elected to field their development side for this fixture.

This was still a tough challenge for Bournemouth Saturday League side Westover but the away side put in a hard-working effort defensively to reach half time at 0-0.

Ultimately, Poole Town's talent shone through shortly after the break as they capitalised on Westover losing concentration. Tom Cole ran onto a low pass from the corner and put the Dolphins in front.

A second followed after from Oli Balmer before Sam Herrington put the game beyond the visitors with 15 minutes to go.

Poole reserve goalkeeper Tom Rees had to be called on to keep out Sean Daly's late effort but the scoreline would eventually be 4-0 after Balmer added a second.
