BASHLEY 2 SHOLING 4 (Tuesday 14th October 2014) Red Insure Cup

By Bashley Football Club | Mike Cranidge | Wednesday 15th October 2014


A much changed Bashley produced an encouraging display against Southern
League opponents Sholing in the Preliminary round of the Red Insure Cup.
Bashley, who gave full first team debuts to midfielder Niki Brown and striker
Lewis Crook, were unrecognisable from the team that were decisively beaten by
AFC Totton on Saturday and were unlucky to concede two late goals when
pressing for a late winner.

Bash started with confidence and despite falling to an early goal in the fifth
minute when a defensive mix up allowed a surprised Dan Mason a free shot, had
the edge in a busy first half. Chances fell to bustling Ricky Dugdale including
one cracking shot that required a fine reaction save from Lee Webber in the
Sholing goal. Webber was again centre stage and lucky to still be on the pitch
after bringing down the goal bound Clive Makoni. The resulting penalty was firmly
struck home by a vengeful Makoni (36 mins).

The Boatman were a constant threat especially left-side where tricky winger Tobi
Adenkunle was a constant danger. Bashley came close to taking the lead in the
41st minute when a fine move involving Dugdale and Makoni gave the unlucky
Crook a chance to open his account only for the ball to escape his outstretched

The second half started with Bash in the ascendancy but after a series of crew
changes, the Boatman looked the better team and took the lead when Mason
doubled his tally with a smart goal (58 mins).Bashley then replaced the tiring
Crook and Brown with Bouwe Bosma and Mitchell Speechley-Price.

Sholing continued to press and Bash replaced Jemel Rose with Matt Head. The
Bash now started to click and in an all-out attempt on goal the ball broke out
from a penalty box melee to Makoni whose snap shot was gleefully lashed into
the net by Speechley-Price (76 mins) to bring the scores level.

Bashley then went for the winner and in doing so left space at the back which
was manna to Sholing front-man Alex Boldachinno who helped himself to two
well taken goals: one in the 79th minute followed by a second on the whistle (90

Bashley entertain the Boatman again on Saturday this time in an important FA
Trophy tie; this game has prize money as well as reputation at stake.
