MONEYFIELDS took the derby spoils as they beat Fareham Town 3-1 at Cams Alders last night.

Jake Slater, Jack Lee and Steve Hutchings were all on the mark to settle the Wessex League premier division clash.

That was after an own goal from keeper Dave Hook had seen Fareham lead.

Moneys started well and on four minutes, Michael Birmingham struck the Fareham bar with a free-kick.

Dave Birmingham, playing against his brother, crafted a good chance for Fareham when he set up Kieran Lewis.

But Moneys keeper Hook stood strong with a fine save.

Dave Birmingham soon had to be replaced after taking some heavy challenges, with Louie Martin stepping off the Reds’ bench.

Prolific Moneys striker Hutchings was thwarted by Reds keeper Luke Douglas.

Fareham then hit the front, five minutes before the interval.

Moneys keeper Hook touched the ball over his own line after a high cross, under pressure from Fareham’s Marc Cotton.

The visitors then spared the keeper’s blushes on the stroke of half-time.

Alex Miroy’s header was not dealt with by Douglas and Slater slammed the ball home for 1-1.

The impressive Miroy was then unlucky to see his shot deflected wide early in the second half.

Hutchings went close next, before Lee powered a header past Douglas for 2-1.

And just before the final whistle, Hook made up for his first-half error.

The keeper’s huge clearance set Hutchings free to drive on and blast Moneys’ third.

Gosport Borough got off the mark in the Evostik Southern League Premier with an excellent 2-0 win at Bideford.

Jamie Brown gave Borough the lead, before Justin Bennett secured the points.

Hayling United won 6-4 at Bournemouth Poppies in the Wessex premier.
