WHITCHURCH United are facing their biggest game of the season against Fawley this Saturday, in what is a massive Wessex League Premier Division relegation showdown at Longmeadow. The Jam Boys boss Carl Bennett believes his side need to win both their remaining games to stand any chance of avoiding the drop.

Bennett said: “Saturday is a massive and Fawley could still escape, but if they lose they are down, so it is going to be a real battle with so much at stake for both sides.”

Bennett added: “We will still be without Scott Hassell for the game, but Jack McCarthy is back from injury which is great boost for us.”

Whitchurch will hopefully start their great escape this weekend against Fawley and then a week on Saturday they are away at Hamworthy, who are 16th in the table and so will have nothing to play for Going into this weekend, all the bottom six have two games remaining.

Amesbury and Bournemouth Poppies are on 37 points, Cowes Sports have 35, Whitchurch are three behind on 32 and Fawley currently have 31.

This Saturday, the Jam Boys play Fawley, while Cowes Sports are away at Alresford, Bournemouth take on bottom side Verwood, while Amesbury are at home to Team Solent.

If Whitchurch win and all three teams above them lose, it will set-up a final day showdown, where Cowes entertain Amesbury, so it would mean if the the Jam Boys won at Hamworthy, they would secure their place in the Premier Division for another season.

Last weekend, the Jam Boys were unable to spoil the party at Moneyfields as they clinched the title with a 6-0 victory.

The home side scored three times in each half and Bennett said: “They are a good side and have three players who joined them from Gosport Borough. We will take the loss on the chin and move on.”
