Eastleigh 2-3 Farnborough

EASTLEIGH V FARNBOROUGH 29TH MARCH 2006 HAMPSHIRE SENIOR CUP SEMI FINAL LEG 2 Eastleigh crashed out of the cup as they conceded to a late Warren McBean super strike. After going down 0-2 in the first half, Eastleigh fought back tremendously to bring the tie level once more just as they had done in the first leg – but this time they were beaten with an 89th minute winner which was Warren McBean’s second goal of the game. In the opening stages of the game Eastleigh looked impressive. Inside the first minute Dave Town went on a dazzling run from outside the eighteen-yard box but as he bore down on goal his touch took him away from goal. The ball eventually found Ashford on the left wing he whipped in a great cross for Danny Smith in the centre whose glancing header flashed across the face of goal and out for a goal kick. After this somewhat explosive start from the home side it was now Farnborough who were beginning to strike. Carl Gibbs, the Farnborough number 9, used his s

Eastleigh 0-2 St. Albans

EASTLEIGH V ST. ALBANS 18TH MARCH 2006 CONFERENCE SOUTH St. Albans score two-second half goals to take all three points. It was the visitors who started the game the better side. Paul Hakim, the St Albans centre forward, skilfully played in his strike partner only for his effort to go just wide of Wayne Shaw’s goal in only the second minute of the game. Eastleigh slowly began to get in the game and could have gone ahead. Ryan Ashford was brought down outside the St. Albans goal and it was Ashford who stepped up to fire the ball from 30 yards. The superb strike was matched by an even better save as Paul Bastock dived through the air to prevent Ashford’s effort from going into the top left hand corner. The home side built on this pressure with a few more Ashford free kicks coming close and Martin Thomas also had a good chance as he ran on to new signing Richard Hodgson’s through ball to shoot at goal but the shot lacked the power to cause any trouble. Paul Hakim somehow w

Eastleigh 1-2 Histon

EASTLEIGH V HISTON 4TH MARCH 2006 CONFERENCE SOUTH Histon score two second half goals to cancel out Stuart Douglas’ ninth minute opener after Eastleigh completely dominated the first half and stole the points in a game of two halves. This result now makes it three straight defeats for Eastleigh. Eastleigh were simply brilliant in the first half and created numerous chances, with early pressure from both Stuart Douglas and Andy Forbes winning corners for Eastleigh in quick succession within five minutes of the game being played.
