Basingstoke and District Saturday League round-up
THE Basingstoke and District Saturday League Premier Division will have just eight clubs for the remainder of the season following the withdrawal of Sherfield.
The club has received the maximum fine allowable, their record has been expunged and the 23 players they had signed on have had their registration withdrawn for 42 days.
Old Basing Rangers failed to raise a team for their game against Welly Old Boys, so there was just one fixture in the top flight, leaders New Inn beating Sherborne St John 4-1.
New Inn went ahead after 20 minutes through Tol Sotonyp and while Sam Hylton levelled on 65 minutes, goals in the last 10 minutes from Lee Chambers, Matt Bennett and Alex Spencer won the day for New Inn.
Skewers returned to the top of the Basingstoke and District Saturday League Division One table with a 1-0 win at Overton United A, Dan Manton scoring the only goal of the game.
Tadley Calleva A had an easier afternoon, beating hosts Herriard 6-1. Herriard took the lead through Sam Weaver but an own-goal and Dave Hicks' strike had Tadley ahead before half-time.
Substitute Kyle Theodore scored a hat-trick in the space of 20 minutes to take the game away from Herriard, with Stephen Burgess completing the scoring.
Chineham Albion lost 2-0 at Hook Reserves, Pete Sylvester netting a penalty and Jack McKee making the game safe in the second half.
Welly Old Boys Reserves have a new manager in Graham Jenkins. He brought in three new players before the game against Bramley United but Welly still lost 3-1.
Stuart Leddy, Ben Squibb and Tim Barnett put Bramley, who also missed a penalty, three up, with Jamie Ballantyne pulling one back for Welly in the second half.
DJS Telecoms lost their unbeaten record in Basingstoke and District Saturday League Division Two, losing 3-0 to Bounty United, with Jordon Willis, Matt Love and Matt King scoring for the winners.
AFC Aldermaston A are off the bottom of the table thanks to a 5-2 win at fellow strugglers Sherborne Reserves. Kevin Flain put Aldermaston ahead and while Mike Shillingford levelled, Andy Hynes gave the visitors a 2-1 lead at half-time.
Flain's second and a Tony Mayne penalty made it 4-1. Connor Perrin pulled one back for Sherborne but Mayne's second of the game completed a good win for Aldermaston.
