DAVID JOSE MEMORIAL TROPHY - BASHLEY 1 NEW MILTON TOWN 0
By Bashley Football Club | Monday 3rd August 2015
DAVID JOSE TROPHY FOR THE BASH
This friendly match was a good pre-season work out for both New Forest clubs,
Bashley with a trialist team, consisting of several trialists with some of last
year’s squad members competing for the David Jose Memorial Trophy. Both
sides played out an evenly matched game with play end to end.
New Milton were the better start initially a James Shering long range lob forcing
George Passingham to tip the dipping ball over his bar. This brought the home
side onto action with a Carl Foster 6 yard shot saved by New Milton's keeper
Tom Rees, who minutes later saved a 12 yard effort by Clive Makoni. New Milton
had a rare chance on goal with a shot going wide off the mark from Sam Carter.
Several more chances came the way for Bashley Olli Dennett latched onto a
Stefan Williams cross with Rees again saving New Milton by tipping the ball
around the post.
The only goal of the match came from Makoni on 37 minutes after the visitors
pressed forward he made a break and found a way through to delight the home
crowd, with Bashley going in one up at half time.
The second half neither team was able to break through, the highlights were a 72
minute shot from Makoni just wide of the goal while at the opposite end Carter
for the visitors was unlucky on a one to one with second half Bash keeper
Callum Maher who only just got to the ball first. Apart from this both keepers had
little to worry about, numerous substitutions with managers looking at options
before the season kicks in this weekend.
It was a tight game in the middle of the park which kept the 124 supporters
happy to the final whistle. There was a heart stopping moment for Bash on 86
minutes with a 20 yard shot hitting the crossbar from Rob Woolner.
