dr martens shop wollaston Alarm bells will ring as fireman signs for Fareham
In his absence it was two tigerish teenagers, Jamie Musselwhite and Peter Woods, who turned the tie Fareham’s way just four days after Town had been overpowered 3 1 in the league by Thatcham at Waterside Park.
Eighteen year old Musselwhite, unhampered by a soft plaster cast on a fractured wrist, opened the scoring on 58 minutes shortly after coming on as substitute.
Matt Czastka equalised on 72 minutes, but back came Fareham with a sweet chip by dangerman Woods after player manager Mark Chamberlain’s shot had rebounded off a defender.
Director of football Duncan Pratt said: “I’m pleased for the boys. We’re asking a lot of this young side but I always say that encouragment breeds confidence and confidence makes you double the player.”
Bashley’s new boss Bob Higgins masterminded a convincing 3 0 result over Ryman Division 1 high fliers Bognor Regis Town in only his second game in charge.
The Foresters may still be without without a Dr Martens Eastern Division win, but they defied the odds to score through a sixth minute Fraser Quirke header, a penalty from fit again skipper Darren Robson, after Stuart Hussey had been tripped, and a stoppage time third from midfielder Anthony Tilley.
The referee had a busy afternoon, cautioning 12 players eight of them from Bognor and sending off Rocks defender Kevin Murphy for a second cautionable offence on 70 minutes.
The luckless Sussex side also had striker Simon Funnell stretchered off with a head injury, hit the post through Nicky Wyatt and had a major penalty claim waved away on 78 minutes.
A happy Higgins reflected: “The lads worked very, very hard. I asked the team to go out and give 100 per cent and they were absolutely spot on. It was a brilliant day for the club.”
Bash now face a testing trip to Wessex champions Andover,
who trimmed Moneyfields 2 1 at the Portway Stadium.
Alan Kennedy had a hand in both first half goals which sealed the Lions’ win.
He opened Andover’s account in the seventh minute and then laid on the second for Vince Rusher on the half hour.
But much improved Moneyfields hit back through Tom Beddow midway through the second half to have assistant Andover manager Mick Burford conceding: “It got a little hairy at times after that.
“We didn’t play that well, but Moneyfields aren’t a bad side now under Calvin Hore.”
A Craig McAllister hat trick and a pre interval brace by Stuart Roberts earned Eastleigh a 5 2 win at Chessington Hook United and set up a visit to one time cup giant killers Sutton United in the next round.
Eastleigh’s height advantage in the box paid major dividends McAllister’s first minute opener and Roberts’s double all coming from set piece headers.
Although the Surrey club clawed two goals back either side of half time, Eastleigh maintained control with McAllister scoring twice in the last ten minutes to complete his hat trick.
Brockenhurst needed an injury time equaliser from Alex Rossi to salvage a 3 3 draw against Combined Counties League side Bedfont at Grigg Lane.
Chris Collinge’s men must now win in Middlesex tomorrow night (Tuesday) if they are to land a money spinning second qualifying round visit from those perennial FA Cup giant killers Kingstonian.
Rossi’s dramatic header, from an Andy Jones cross, denied Bedfont, who went 3 2 ahead six minutes from time after cancelling out a Phil Stone double.
Gareth Barnes had a penalty saved with the tie in the balance at 2 2.
Gosport Borough thought they were going to stroll past Littlehampton after early headers by Jason Mann and Neil Scammell gave them a 2 0 lead inside the opening 15 minutes.
But some sloppy defending allowed the Sussex Leaguers to pull level before Jon Wallsgrove restored Borough’s advantage from the penalty spot.
Littlehampton made it 3 3 on the stroke of half time, leaving Gosport manager Mick Marsh fuming.
“We ought to have killed them off long before half time. We missed chances and then got punished for some poor defending,” he moaned.
The winners of tomorrow (Tuesday) evening’s Privett Park replay (7.45) will visit either Lewes Town or Sittingbourne, who drew 1 1.
Form team Christchurch, now second in the JWL, beat Bristol Manor Farm 2 0 to line up a home tie against Cirencester, who thumped Bournemouth Poppies 5 0.
Alan Nicholas and Luke Gogan scored either side of half time to set up the Christchurch victory over Bristol Manor Farm.
“They scored their second and third in the 90th and 91st minutes,” said manager Andy Leader. “We were right in it and pushing for an equaliser. Even their bench thought were deserved to take them back to Southampton for a replay.
