Bashley boost survival chances
BASHLEY enhanced their Southern League survival hopes with a 2-1 win over Chippenham - but just 87 spectators turned out to watch it.
Early goals from Mark Gamble and James Stokoe secured a potentially vital victory for Bash against their relegation rivals at the Recreation Ground last night.
Lee Phillips replied for the visitors in front of Bashley's lowest home crowd of the season for a Premier Division match.
The New Forest outfit, who are in advanced talks to join forces with neighbours New Milton Town, have the lowest home attendance in the division.
Bash: Moore, Strickland, Oliver, Finlay, Middleton, Richardson, Casey, Colson, Stokoe (Gradwell, 79), Gamble, Knight. Unused subs: Hill, Foster, Gazzard, Kearn (g/k).
- Cherries prospect Harry Cornick scored a fine solo goal to seal Christchurch's route into the semi-finals of the Russell Cotes Cup.
The talented winger struck with three minutes remaining as Priory claimed a 3-1 victory over Southern League Division One Central outfit Fleet Town.
After Fleet had taken a 1-0 lead, prolific striker Ben Osborne netted twice before Cornick fired home having dribbled through the visiting defence.
Priory: Frampton, Thompson, Legg, Magookin, Lloyd, Burden, Smith, Griffin, Osborne, Cook, Cornick. Unused subs: Crutchley, Yelland, Puckett, Dand, Collins (g/k).
- Bournemouth Poppies host Moneyfields in a rearranged Wessex Premier clash tomorrow night (7.45pm).
Poppies, on the back of three successive victories, are likely to face a stern test against the high-flying Portsmouth outfit at Victoria Park.
Poppies: (from) Jones, Ayrton, Jackson, Corby, Clarke, Saadi, Lockyer, Phillipson-Masters, Joyce, Ward, Phillips, Martinez, Bautista, Turner, Batchelor, Hales, Watt, Vaughan.
