Panburton3A total of 4 Isle of Wight teams – Brading Town, Shanklin, Pan Community and AFC Wootton – will be in the draw for the last 8 of their respective Hampshire Cup competitions.

Pan Community progressed to the last 8 of the Hampshire Vase after beating AFC Burton from the Bournemouth Saturday League 3-1 at Downend.

“The boys did us proud today with the way they played and worked hard for each other against a tough and well-organised side. What made the win more special is we have not played for over 5 weeks and only managed 2 indoor sessions due to the hall not being available, so to put in the performance and work-rate was really good to see. Also, we have a good squad as a couple of regulars were out and the players we brought in slotted in well.

“Hopefully, we can get to the final this year. We have played 3 games in this cup scoring 33 goals and conceded just 2, and every team we have played so far were sitting comfortably at the top of their leagues.”

In the only other game to be played in the Hampshire Vase competition on the Isle of Wight this Saturday, Shanklin Reserves were beaten 2-5 at the County Ground by St Francis of the Southampton Saturday League. St Francis are a formidable side as they had already knocked out W&B Reserves 0-1 in the previous round of the competition. The scorer of both goals for Shanklin Reserves was the former Newport player and dead-ball specialist Iain Seabrook, through a free kick and a penalty.

Pan Community will join AFC Wootton in the last 8 of the competition, after Wootton won 5-6 against Winsor United Green the previous Saturday.

Hampshire Trophy: Warsash Wasps 2-2 Shanklin

Last season’s Trophy finalists Shanklin have scraped through to the last 8 of the competition after beating Southampton Saturday League side Warsash Wasps.

Warsash opened the scoring after 20 minutes against the run of play. However, Nick Vyse equalised 10 minutes later when he dispossessed the Wasps’ keeper close to the corner flag before scoring from a tight angle.

However, in the 5th minute of extra time, Cory Sanderson scored with the final kick of the game to keep Shanklin in the competition.

BembridgefcBembridge 2-4 Meon Milton

The visitors scored first in the 20th minute. Bembridge equalised with a header from Charlie Dyer 10 minutes later to leave the score 1-1 at half time. Meon Milton then took a 2 – 1 lead in the 55th minute, followed with a 3rd and 4th on 60 and 65 minutes. Bembridge scored a consolation penalty from Micheal Brown late in the game.

After the game, Bembridge manager Justin Malin said:

“They are a very good side and overall deserved to go through. We put them under pressure at times, and they defended well. At the same time, their front line was very lively throughout. Proud of the boys who gave us everything and battled till the end.”

W&B 0-0 Hook (Hook won 3-1 on penalties)

The Isle of Wight champions were unable to break down a stubborn Hook side despite having a goal from Aiden Sainsbury disallowed for offside in the last minute and ended up losing the game on penalties. After the game, Dean Rayner, on behalf of Whitecroft & Barton, said:

“It was a very scrappy game, and W&B looked rusty. Whitecroft & Barton had most of possession, but no clear-cut chances. Hook defended brilliantly the whole game.”

Shanklin will be joined in the quarter finals of the Hampshire Trophy by current holders Brading Town who had a walkover victory against opponents Bishop Waltham Dynamos, who were unable to raise a team.
