Whitchurch United v Fawley
A selection of colourful boots lining up at five to three. It's been a long season, but we're nearly there now. Nearly all over. What's yours been like? Some of you will be players. You've scored with that incredible volley from thirty yards that you'll nev...

Stockbridge v Bush Hill
This sign appeared in the book "Got, Not Got" a few years back! This is the tale of two football clubs whose fortunes could not have been more different this season. There's the old, traditional village club, who have struggled to compete. Then there's the ...

Cowes Sports v Sholing
One of the two entrance signs at Cowes Sports. This is the dirty older one, but I liked the daffodils. Lists. My life is full of them. Sometimes, if I didn't have a list of things to do, I wouldn't even get up in the morning. I mean, I don't actually have a...

Upham v Michelmersh & Timsbury
Upham FC ready for action. As a child, I would regularly have nightmares. Always the same thing...ghosts. I would wake up screaming because I was convinced I'd seen a headless highwayman in my room. Whilst my eyes were adjusting to the light, the ghost woul...

Weymouth Reserves v Folland Sports

Paulsgrove v Colden Common
Watching Paulsgrove attacking in the first half. We all do it. We all daydream about what we'd do if we suddenly had millions of pounds to spend. A lottery win, an unexpected bequeathment from a rich great-uncle, a hand-me-down banking job in the City of Lo...

Banstead Athletic v Eversley & California
Standing on a raised concrete slab to gain a better view of the players' arrival. It's funny the things you remember. Back when I lived in Portsmouth as a late teen / early twenty-something, I knew this lad who just couldn't talk to girls. So tongue-tied, s...

Hamble Club v Totton & Eling
Leaving the changing rooms at 2:55. Minutes away from kick-off! Mine was one of the last generations to grow up before the internet took over the world, before everything you could possibly want to know was just a click or two away on your PC, tablet or sma...

The Sixth Annual Festive Parade of Rusty Rollers
Bridport FC. Well camouflaged. I hate to be the bringer of bad tidings at this time of celebration, but I've noticed a worrying trend over the past few months. I've travelled hither and thither watching football matches since August, often reporting on them...

Southampton Women's FC v Swindon Town Ladies FC
Hats for sale at Southampton Women's FC! I'm going to start this match report with a question... Tell me, which is Hampshire's most successful club in national competitions? To which, the Saints fans reading this would reply, "We are! We've been in the top ...
