Sunday saw the Gosport Team beat Portsmouth and Southsea 1st X1 3-1, with their last league fixture of the season.

Men’s 2nd XI
A hard fought victory against local rivals Fareham 6th team, saw the Men’s 2nd team finish the season with 33 points, safe in mid table of Hants Div 5.
Gosport tried hard not to win this game with Dean Tutt, returning from injury, missing a hat full of chances, and the defensive unit working hard to keep the scores level at half time. But in the second period two goals, from man of the match Mike Higgins were enough to win the game, despite Fareham grabbing a late consolation goal to make the last 30 seconds of the game exciting.
Skipper Mark Shaw summed up well a very up and down season as “a great spring board for next season with the team bonding well, and producing some great performances”.
A depleted Gosport side travelled to Poole for this bottom of the table clash and potential relegation decider, short of some regular players and with several players nursing injuries.
A good performance by Gosport in the first half saw the sides turn round level at 0-0. However the injuries that some players were carrying started to affect Gosport in the second half and Poole started to man mark Rannoch Foster, our best player, and in spite of some brave defending the final score was 3-0 to Poole
Gosport are now bottom of the division with 2 games remaining, 3 points behind Poole and 4 behind Yately 4 with a game in hand on both and to play Yately on the 6th April
Man of the match was Rannoch Foster closely followed by Andy Johnston and Sander Meysen

Gosport 1′s vs Fareham 4′s
Saturday’s game against Fareham IVs presented Gosport with their first chance to secure promotion. Gosport were quick out of the gate, scoring in the first 5 minutes; “Tiny”, seizing the opportunity presented from a short corner, flicked the ball in the top left of the net. Fareham bravely fought back bringing the game to 1-1. They soon succumbed to overwhelming pressure from Gosport and by half-time the score was 4-1. The beginning of the second half proved challenging as neither team wanted to be the first to concede the first goal of the second 35 minutes. Once again Gosport used a well-practised short corner routine to push into the lead, with Rob Forrest flicking a fantastically placed ball into a bottom corner. Gosport, with their superior communication, slick passing and admirable fitness took unswerving control of the game; the score line finishing just shy of double-figures at 9-1. Scott Rodwell, Gosport’s centre-mid, was voted man of the match, nobody is sure why! In light of their promotion, Gosport would like to extend special thanks to Gaynor Toms for her inspirational coaching, critical tactical decision-making and unwavering belief in the ability of the team.
Scorers from Gosport were as follows:
- Rob Forrest – 1
- “Tiny” – 2
- Steve Loneragan – 2
- Ben Lewis – 1
- Jamie Lewis – 1
- Pete Campbell – 1
- And a scorcher from Dean Tutt

Gosport Men’s 2XI vs Andover 3rds (home)
The Men’s second X1 lined up for only their second game of the new year after the snow disruption of the previous weekend, still missing a few key players, but welcoming back a number for the second half of the season. The game started with a young Andover side pressuring well, and Gosport not really getting into their stride, until about the 10 minute mark when Richard Kemp found himself clear to finish well on his reverse from the first Gosport chance of the game. The game got a bit scrappy then with Andover equalizing when awarded a penalty which Richard Astbury in the Gosport goal could do nothing about. Rich Kemp grabbed his second of the game shortly afterwards to put the home side back in front, only to see Andover once again equalize at 2-2. With the game evenly balanced step forward Gosport Captain Luke Tickner to score rare goal from him, with a very fine effort from a short corner.
That was the story of the first half and the way the scores remained until full time, although Richard Astbury in the Gosport goal pulled off a number of good saves in the second half, and man of the match Paul Masson did a sterling job at full back to keep the 3 points with the home side.
Gosport 1898 vs Havant 6 (home)
Gosport 1898s had a shocking start at home by losing a goal within 5 minutes when a slow mishit crossed ball into the ‘D’ slipped through the triangle made between the stand in goalkeeper’s glove, stick and the ground. The 1898s managed to equalise quickly but sustained pressure from the Havant team brought a succession of short corners which lead to several goals. By halftime Gosport were 4-1 down. However the 1898’s held their nerve and fought back well in an exciting, open second half in which the 1898s scored once to reduce the deficit. Havant hit Gosport’s post once as they also continued to attack but the final score remained a 4-2 win for the visitors.
Man of the match for Gosport was Sander Meyerson for his calm, assured defending and the quality of his clearances.
