Jamie Brown breathed new life into Gosport Borough’s hopes of staying in the Skrill South with the only goal of the game in a vital 1-0 win at Weston-super-Mare.

The Borough skipper netted the crucial winner early in the second half as he used the strong wind to fire home a looping long-range effort to clinch the points.

Meanwhile, the Hawks’ Skrill South clash with Maidenhead United at Westleigh Park fell foul to the weather.

And it was a similar story in the Wessex League premier division as AFC Portchester, Fareham Town, Horndean and Moneyfields all had their respective games postponed.

Paulsgrove beat the weather and neighbours Fleetlands to progress to the quarter-finals of the Hampshire Premier League Cup with an emphatic 5-1 victory at Marsden Road.

Harry Griffin and Aiden Hatton both completed doubles and Wayne Harding was also on target for Darren Robson’s men.

Fleetlands – who will feel the scoreline flattered the victors – hadled in the tie through Danny Jackson’s early strike.
