Basingstoke and District Saturday League Division Two round-up
BASINGSTOKE Labour Club travelled from Brighton Hill to Berrydown to play Overton United B at the last minute as the pitches at their Brighton Hill home were deemed unfit for play.
It was a decision they were soon made to regret. Darren White was Overton’s star with four goals in their 6-2 Basingstoke and District Saturday League Division Two victory, while Scott Winterbourne and Nick Breeze got the others. Andy Carr and Dave Bessant replied for Labour.
The game involving Basingstoke Athletic and Twenty-Ten was postponed due to loose turf in the penalty areas at the Brighton Hill pitches. Pure Spartan were offered the chance to travel to Berrydown and play but declined.
DJS Telecoms, known as Chineham Albion Reserves last season, proved too good for Bengal Brasserie, winning 6-3.
Lee Neal was their star turn with four and Bengal did well enough in the first half, which ended 2-2, thanks to Kyle Buckland and a Josh Taylor penalty. DJS got to six thanks to Alex Brown, Neal (2) and George Lagden, leaving Buckland to net a consolation.
Hampshire Irons, who transferred from the Sunday League, had the biggest win of the day, hammering Sherborne St John Reserves 8-1.
Craig Hopper opened the scoring and, by the break, a straight hat-trick came from Mo Barry and a second for Hopper.
Although James Brown did make it 5-1, Sherbourne were outclassed, with James Arnold scoring twice and Tom L’Heureux getting the eighth.
AFC Berg and AFC Aldermaston A drew 1-1 as Kevin Flain scored for Aldermaston, an own-goal by Leon Gregory salvaging a point for Berg.
