August 2017 was an interesting month, with a collection of friendlies, league, and cup matches, with Steve Claridge trialing several new players and what with injuries and holidays we saw quite a lot of players on the pitch. August started with a friendly 2 -0 win (Francis 2) against Basingstoke Town on 5th, followed by another friendly 1 -2 (Shepard 1) away loss to Gosport on Tuesday 8th August. We started our League Season on Saturday 12th August with an impressive away 5 – 0 win at Mangotsfield with goals from Herbert (2), O’Keefe (1), Francis (1P) and Perrett (1). The first home match and second League game was against Paulton Rovers on 15th August and ended with a 2 – 2 draw with goals from O’Keefe and Whelan. On Saturday 19th August we played Fareham Town in the FACPr at home with a 3 – 2 win with good goals by Colson, O’Keefe and Young. When we traveled to North Leigh, near Oxford, we saw a bad tempered game (not from us) with us losing 2 – 1 with O’Keefe scoring the only goal. On the Bank Holiday Monday we hosted AFC Totton in a League match and won with Brooks scoring both goals.
So there have been seven matches in August, two friendlies, 4 Leagues and 1 FAC and lots of players to choose from, who are listed below. I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone!
