Hamworthy United 6 Bournemouth 2
Sydenhams Premier League (Tuesday 20th November 2018)

After some good recent results United had climbed to 9th in the league, but in this game they would face a stern challenge from in-form neighbours Bournemouth Poppies, who have surprised many pundits by reaching 5th place in the table. United were without Dan Cann and Eddie Hodge, but welcomed back to action Nathan Peprah-Annan, and weekend substitutes Micky Finch and Sean Wright both starting. To add extra spice to this derby, recently "swapped" front men Micky Finch and River Smith were both facing their former club.
The Hammers started well and forced a corner from their first attack, but it was the visitors who set the early tone. A fierce shot by Fawzi Saadi just missed the post, and another brilliant effort by Stepan Neronski, did find the net, but it had been already ruled out for offside. United soon settled and Micky Finch's angled shot was well pushed away by Poppies' keeper Sam Jones. Luke Stone then put what looked to be an easy chance just wide, after the keeper had spilled the ball when colliding with his own defender. On 22 minutes, the hosts drew first blood. Jamie Gleeson's through ball down the line found Micky Finch. He played it through to Luke Stone who ably slotted it home into the bottom corner, thus atoning for his earlier miss. Three minutes later the hosts doubled their advantage. A defence splitting through ball by Sam Bayston found Luke Stone in space, who ran on to beat Jones with a top class finish. After withholding a period of Bournemouth pressure, United added a third on the stroke of half time. Mark Jamison got his head to Finch's free kick just in front of a hesitant goalkeeper, to find the net. However, Poppies did manage to pull a goal back seconds before the interval whistle. Just as Neronski was about to pull the trigger, Gleeson made a strong contact which the referee adjudged to be a penalty. Ali Zintany powerfully hit the ball home despite a determined dive by Tom Rees. Despite the late set back it was a very happy Hamworthy side that left the field at the interval.
H/T 3-1
Poppies had been creating problems with deliveries from the right flank for much of the game, and almost made it pay when substitute Pepe Smith glanced Saadi's corner onto and over the bar. It was no surprise when this route finally paid dividends on 72 minutes. Sami Makhloufi whipped in a ball across the goal, for Neronski, lurking at the far post, to power it into the opposite corner of the net, giving Rees no chance to save. With their lead now pegged back to one goal, a few United nerves maybe began to jangle. However the hosts' two goal cushion was restored on 83 minutes, with a superb solo goal scored by Sam Bayston. After cutting in following a long run, he lifted the ball over his defender and two other defenders before slotting the ball home from the edge of the six yard box. Bayston also had a hand in Hammers' fifth goal four minutes later, putting the ball through to Luke Stone. He turned his defender before threading the ball just inside the far post, and just outside the keeper’s reach to complete a fine hat trick. The United party was still not over as they were to score again from yet another Bayston lay-off. Under 18 player Jack Delves who had only just come onto the pitch, seemed at first to have mishit the ball, but it somehow spun upwards and then into the back of the net for his first senior goal. This will do the sixteen year old's confidence a power of good. This was the Hammers second derby demolition job within a few days that also put to bed their three week Tuesday night losing hoodoo. This win moved them up into seventh place and on this form they would give most Wessex League clubs a run for their money.
