Sydenhams Wessex Premier: Lymington Town FC 4-1 Bashley

LYMINGTON Town FC claimed back to back 4-1 victories over Bashley in consecutive weeks after a dominant second-half display.

Lewis Ross gave the away side the lead just after the half time interval following good work from youngster Josh Cook. However, two goals each for Dominic Falco and Luke Churchill meant the home side ran out comfortable winners.

The match failed to get going in the first half with chances few and far between for both sides. Bashley midfielder Ross, who started the game in an unfamiliar number-nine role, was the away side’s biggest threat during the first 45 minutes.

A neat combination with Cook and Harry Morgan allowed Ross to get in behind but Lymington keeper Nic Jones was quick off his line to deal with the danger.

Lymington showed promising signs during the first half with Micky Finch and Sam House unlucky with shots from distance.

Bashley took the lead in the second half while most of the crowd were still enjoying their half-time tea.

Almost straight from kick-off, young Cook harried his marker into a poor back-pass from near the corner flag. Ross latched onto the loose pass and slotted home past a surprised Jones from an acute angle.

Despite taking the lead, the away side failed to build on it, and it was one-way traffic from that point on with Lymington taking control.

The equaliser came from Churchill who lofted in a long free-kick which remained unchallenged until it found the bottom corner of the Bashley goal.

Ten minutes later, play continued despite for a centre-field clash of heads that left Morgan on the floor and the Bash physio rushing from his seat. This allowed Dominic Falco to score while a static Bash defence waited for the whistle.

Churchill and Falco added to Lymington’s lead, both scoring in the final few minutes.

The defeat leaves Bashley in 11th place while Lymington are up to seventh in the Sydenhams Wessex Premier table.
