AFC Portchester moved up two places in the Wessex League Premier division table thanks to a 3-0 away win at bottom-of-the-table Romsey.

Despite difficult playing conditions at The Bypass Ground, the away side raced into a 2-0 lead at half-time thanks to goals from Louie Bell and George Way.

And the visitors made the points safe in the second half when Steffan Gaisie added to the home side’s misery.

‘It was another good three points on what was a difficult day to play football,’ said AFC director of football Mick Jenkins.

‘It was also pleasing to get another clean sheet, and we can now look forward to Thursday night’s game with Verwood Town.’

Portchester’s victory allowed them to leapfrog Horndean, who drew 1-1 at strugglers Lymington Town.

Meanwhile, Moneyfields v Downtown, Fareham Town v Bournemouth Poppies and Hayling United v Verwood were called off without a ball being kicked due to waterlogged pitches.

In the Ryman League premier division, Bognor enjoyed a 2-1 win at Thurrock to remain unbeaten during the month of April.
