Fleet Town maintained their unbeaten start to the season and condemned Bashley to
a second successive defeat with a goal just before the quarter hour mark from Rob
In a scrappy encounter, the home side had the better of the opening stages and it
came as little surprise when Carr picked up possession in midfield and was allowed
to advance forward before placing a low drive beyond Callum Maher from the edge of
the area.
Former Bash star Craig Davis, now player-manager at Fleet, prompted his troops
from a deep lying midfield role, but the Bash defence held firm, prompted by skipper
Jamie Thoroughgood. Jack White picked up the first caution for the hosts, with
Leighton Speechley-Price soon following him into the book as tempers began to
flare. Simba Mlambo missed a glorious opening to extend the Fleet advantage just
before the interval but Bash remained in contention at that stage.
Carr and White both missed presentable chances to extend the advantage early in
the second half, with the latter especially culpable. Maher made a brave block to deny
Carr before White clipped the bar from close range. Despite the home side being on
top, Bash almost struck back when Husan Aurow forced Ryan Pryce into a smart stop
at his near post. Mlambo again fired just wide before Bash forced a succession of
corners in a furious late onslaught as they pressed for an equaliser.

Speechley-Price and Thoroughgood both saw efforts fly off target, before the latter
picked up a suspected dislocated shoulder in added time as he tussled for
possession inside the Fleet area. Ultimately no points, but plenty of spirit from a
young Bashley side who are on a steep learning curve in Southern League football.
