Come from behind win for Whitchurch
Whitchurch United 2 Verwood Town 1.
It wasn’t pretty but Whitchurch’s win over Verwood makes it five games unbeaten for Jim Macey’s side.
Injuries, holidays and suspensions all played their part in team selection, although there was some good news with the return of Scott Hassell following three weeks out with a quad strain.
Verwood set the early pace with Nathan Saxby showing his speed down the right wing and ten minutes in they took the lead.
‘Keeper Tom Hindmarsh’s throw was intercepted by Jack Lovell who found Saxby and his excellent strike found the net.
With both teams failing to take control it took a handball from Verwood's Matthew Oldring to give Whitchurch the chance to draw level.
Luke Walker did not disappoint, his spot kick sending the keeper the wrong way.
The second half saw a more determined Whitchurch and on the hour James Tennant picked up a sloppy pass and cut across to drive the ball in and the hard working Hassell nodded the winner.
The Jam Boys now have a break until October 22 when they will take on Andover Town in the North Hants Senior Cup.
