Men's Hampshire Division 2 January 25, 2020 - 4:30 pm


A romantic fixture under moonlight awaited the Island side due to a very late match start. With no time to prepare the Island were unable to find their groove and the mood lighting didn’t help the situation. Havant, having had time to adjust their eyes to night vision, were first to score – this gave the Island the wake up call they needed and a competitive competition broke out. Havant scored a further two goals in the first half and then an action packed second half ensued with Havant having two of their players sent off. Sam Challis put in a sterling performance until losing his footing during a delightful tackle which took out the opposition and was ultimately awarded a yellow card. Lewis Heavan-Gandy was over worked and under paid in defence, and not wanting to be out done earnt a rest on the side lines by receiving a yellow card for breaking down play. Stephen Woodford battled hard in midfield but was punished with a yellow whilst trying to take a quick pass, which took him into contact with his opposite number. Havant scored their forth, but the Island continued to push and Wightlink Man of the Match Tom Young swivelled quickly and shot low and hard earning a much deserved goal.
