DAN Munday maintained his fruitful start to his Bashley career by netting twice in their thrilling win over Sydenhams Wessex Premier rivals Team Solent on Tuesday.

Bashley's 3-2 victory made it four wins in a row and left them in sight of a top-10 finish in their first season back in the Wessex League.

Former Wimborne, Totton and Blackfield & Langley striker Munday paved the way for the Bashley Road triumph when he skipped through a static defence and rifled home an unstoppable shot eight minutes before half-time.

Semal Wiseman restored parity six minutes into what turned out to be a pulsating second period before two top-drawer saves from Joe Coombes, deputising for injured Bash skipper Joe Prodomo, prevented the revitalised visitors from taking the lead.

Munday netted from close range to restore Bash's lead following good work by substitute Harry McGrath midway through the second half.

But Team Solent quickly hit back when Pip Nolan squeezed home a header after Bash had failed to deal with a corner.

Bash regained the lead almost immediately when a precision pass from Lewi Brailey sent Hugh Dathan scampering down the wing.

And his cross was collected by Kabba Jack who rounded off the scoring with a composed finish.

Both teams had efforts cleared off the line in the closing stages of an absorbing contest which was a tremendous advert for the Wessex League and a credit to the clubs.

Bash: Coombes, Head, Pooley, Wright, Rolls, Lucas, Dathan, Brailey, Jack, Munday, Drake. Subs: McGrath, Gould, Slade.
