CHRISTCHURCH'S journey in the FA Vase is over after losing 2-1 at home against Sutton Common Rovers.

Almost 200 fans turned up to Hurn Bridge for the fourth-round clash, but the majority were left disappointed with goals from Phil Page and Adam Allen doing the damage before a late Max Wilcock consolation.

In Wessex Premier, hat-tricks from Cameron Beard and Harry McGrath guided Bashley to a big win over Shaftesbury.

Harry Morgan was also on target for the hosts, who smashed the Rockies 7-2 to jump into the top half.

James Shorey's late strike earned Brockenhurst a 1-1 draw against Hamworthy United at Grigg Lane. Hammers had led through Ollie Davis, but had to settle for a point.

Struggling Poppies lost 2-0 after two late goals from Hamble's Nathan Lynch.

In Division One, New Milton Town were thrashed 7-1 at Newport despite a Joe Petty goal, while strikes from Ryan Hamm and Ben Harris cancelled out an Ethan Maddocks strike in Ringwood Town's 2-1 win at Verwood Town.

Verwood return to action tomorrow in the Dorset Senior Cup semi-final, hosting Weymouth.

Wimborne Town are also in action, travelling to Weston-super-Mare in Southern League South.
