Non-League: Adie hails side's 'best performance by a mile'
VERWOOD boss Adie Arnold has hailed his side’s 3-1 home win over Bemerton on Wednesday night as the club’s ‘best performance of the season by a mile.’ The Potters hero was their recent signing from Bemerton Lee Burch who scored twice against his old club. Jack Satterley was also on target for the hosts.
“Bemerton are a good side and we had to be at our best,” said Arnold. “We’ve played well in patches recently, but this is the first time we’ve performed for the whole 90 minutes. Now we have set the benchmark to show what we are capable at this level.”

“It’s probably the worst time to play them on the back of a couple of league defeats and their Vase exit,” said Browne. “But I know their manager ‘Chalky’ (Ian Chalk) well and he will have them fired up to get a result against us.
“They are one of the strongest sides in our division and have been unlucky not get promoted in recent seasons,” added Browne.
Hammers: Knight, Murray, Hester, Horlock, Ayling, McCormack, Penny, Bassiriki, Wyatt, Shovelton, Chudy, Pekun, Bradley, Lanahan, Muller, Sturgess.
