Have your say

Graham Titheridge hit a hat-trick as AFC Middlecroft slammed AFC Seaway 6-1 in Gosport & Fareham League division three.

Lewis Caswell got two, and Lloyd Cowell also scored for the victors.

Locks Heath WMC bagged six points from a double-banker with Redlands.

Stuart Stock and Mike Trench netted for Redlands in their opening 3-2 reverse.

Pete Harris, Liam Harris and Jon Stevens were on the mark in the return game when they went down 4-3.

Only the two pitches at Bay House School were declared fit last Sunday, as the backlog of games continues to rise.

It will be a busy end to the season when the battle for honours commences again.

Last season, CJ Glass completed a league and cup treble.

They are still on course to repeat the achievement.

Recently, they have been only playing cup fixtures and bounced back from a county cup semi-final defeat to overcome Locks Heath WMC to reach the Gosport Borough Supporters’ Cup final once again.

With five games remaining, they are top of division one and clearly have the winning mentality to finish at the summit.

In the War Memorial Cup quarter-final, they face Dove Travel.

Newly-promoted Locks Heath WMC sit level at the head of the table with a perfect six-game record.

Their division two-winning squad has been bolstered this season and winning the championship is in their own hands.

Another promoted club to make a mark are Mayfair.

This young side saw the value of hard work to overcome Bridgemary Eagles and reach the Supporters’ Cup final.

Their victims will be keen not to end the season empty handed when they face Locks Heath WMC in the delayed War Memorial semis.

Newcomers Go Bowling have led from the start in division two.

But two defeats have allowed the chasing pack to close slightly.

Whiteley are only five points adrift on level games.

These two are due to meet twice before the end of the season and these clashes are likely to decide the destination of the trophies.

Locks Heath Sports & Social Club were division four winners last season.

They are putting together a run of results that should seal another title.

Their closest challengers in division three are Heathfield Royals and their recent 3-1 win over the Locks reduced the arrears to three points, with the Royals having a game in hand.

Mid-table Glencoe have only lost one league game this season and could still power their way into the race for the title.

This could signal a league and cup double as they beat Parkway Athletic to reach the Fareham Town Supporters’ Club Cup final.

Fighting Cocks Reserves are leading division four with 30 points from 11 games but have to face their closest rivals.

Holbrook have only dropped two points from seven games and inflicted the only league loss on AFC Gosport Select.
