Fareham under-14s were unable to qualify for the last eight of the National Knockout Cup on Sunday.

The youngsters played three pool matches at Henry Cort School, losing two but winning their final match against Oxford.

The hosts lost 2-0 to Bournemouth in the first game, conceding a goal in each half.

They then took on Cheltenham but were caught on the break and were 3-0 down at half-time.

Henry Beardsall scored a fine consolation goal in the second half to pull the score back to 3-1.

In the final game, Fareham beat Oxford 2-1, with both goals coming from Owen Pastides.

Fareham coach Derek Bradbury said: ‘It was a great event that we hosted, with all four teams playing some great hockey.

‘This gives our youngsters a valuable experience of competitive hockey that I expect them to benefit from for next season.’
