We shuffled our team for this game but still approached it with the intention of
winning. To say we were disappointed is an understatement.

We were comfortable in possession until we conceded a needless penalty. Even
though we were disappointed to be a goal behind, our loss of shape and the long ball
football we began to play was not how we set up. We came in 2 -1 down at half time
and although we came at Team Solent strong in the second half the performance
continued to be poor and we missed numerous chances.

All in all this was a performance that is not acceptable for Bashley FC regardless of
the score and the players have been made aware of the standards expected.
Ultimately the responsibility lies with me and all I can do is apologise to our
supporters for letting both ourselves down and our fans. I would like to wish Team
Solent all the best in the next round and congratulate them on their deserved victory.

On a positive note I completed the signing of much sort after Clive Makoni who was
an ex-AFC Bournemouth apprentice and we have two approaches with two other
clubs for permission to speak with their players. I am also hoping to add another
quality signing next week which I believe will strengthen the squad.

Shivan Roushbaiani suffered a nasty injury during the game when his knee appeared
to get stuck in the ground, it is thought that his knee became dislocated and popped
back in. He has been to the hospital and is now awaiting an MRI scan as he has
ligament damage as soon as I know more I will update you. We wish Shivan a
speedy recovery.

Thank you all for your patience.
