Have your say

Moneyfields head for the New Forest where they can do local rivals Hayling a huge favour by beating Brockenhurst (3pm).

‘We are badly hit by injuries and suspensions but will be doing our utmost to win the game and help Hayling,’ said manager Miles Rutherford.

‘The youngsters who did a good job for us last week will be out there again.’

Moneyfields: Hook, Evans, Bailey, Needham, Brown, Horrell, Wain, Middleton, Gauntlett, N’Doye, Singh, Gregory, Kendall. n Fareham Town end their Wessex League premier division campaign with a visit to Bemerton Heath Harlequins, who have their eyes set on the runners-up spot (3pm).

The Reds are looking to bounce back from their 5-1 defeat at Hamble ASSC on Easter Monday, when their recent hectic schedule finally caught up with them.

Playing their fourth game in eight days, fatigue saw them concede four goals in the final 20 minutes.

‘We have had to play a ridiculous number of games in a short space of time,’ said manager Matt Parr.

‘It was bound to catch up with us in the end.

‘But we have now had a good few days rest and are looking forward to go again one last time.

‘Bemerton still have something to play for and it is nice at this time of the season to play in games where that’s the case.’

The visitors are without Dan Hayes and Dan Byrne, who are on holiday, and striker Graham Lindsey remains a doubt due to his knee problem.

‘We are eighth in the league and have finished above teams with bigger budgets than ours,’ said Parr.

‘The loyalty and work ethic of the players has been tremendous and we are aiming to head into the summer on a positive note.’

Fareham Town: Harrop, Warren, Buckland, Wood, Jones, Martin, McKie, Cotton, Kirby, Darke, Lindsey, Spiers, Burt, Thompson, Redman.
