Hawks boss has grounds for concern

Have your say

Horndean forward Louis Bell is aiming to get one over his dad when AFC Portchester make the trip to Five Heads Park tomorrow (3pm).

The two teams lock horns in an FA Cup derby clash.

Bell’s dad, Louis, is first team coach at Wicor Rec.

He said: ‘I am hoping to buy my dad a drink afterwards to help him drown his sorrows,’ said Bell jnr.

‘We usually talk football together all the time but we have not given anything away to each other this week.

‘Family bragging rights are up for grabs and hopefully I can give my dad some grief.

‘When he was manager at Blackfield I scored two against them in a 5-0 win and he didn’t speak to me much after that.

‘It will be tough. If we turn up in the right frame of mind then we should be okay.’

Fareham Town boss Matt Parr is hoping to shock Southern League premier division visitors Weymouth at Cams Alders (3pm).

The Reds fancy their chances of securing a win.

‘We will look to take the game to them and make the most of our home advantage,’ said Parr.

‘There is enough quality in our squad to surprise them.

‘It should be entertaining because we play an attacking style looking to score goals.’

Fareham have centre-back Kieron Lewis back but left-back Sam Doswell is on holiday.

Depleted Moneyfields go to Southern League Bashley.

They could be missing up to eight players.

‘We have problems all over the park and at the moment it is just a case of trying to get a side out,’ said manager Miles Rutherford.

‘It is not the greatest time to be playing this FA Cup game.’
