Bournemouth Sports FC 6 Sturminster Marshall 1

Sat 17th Feb, Chapel Gate 2PM KO

Bournemouth Sports scored six goals at home again for the second consecutive week this time against basement boys Sturminster Marshall to run out 6-1 winners.

The hosts really struggled to find momentum in the opening exchanges and often saw their vast possession of the ball being wasted and creating no real chances to speak of against a packed out and stubborn Sturminster backline.

However the deadlock was broken on 20 minutes when winger James Bergin outpaced the full back and saw his near post cross converted by striker Jack Voisey. Sturminster were back on level terms immediately from the kick off when striker Ian Male scored with a great strike outside the area past Sports keeper Marc Davies.

Sports debutant Taylor Edwards saw a fantastic low strike from outside the box nestle in the far corner on 25 minutes to restore his teams lead, but other than that the half was a bit of an anti climax. HT 2-1

The men from Chapel Gate started brightly in the second half when winger James Bergin saw his near post corner creep in and Bergs would add his sides 4th goal on the hour mark following a good run and shot inside the box. New striker signing Max Mountford would grab his first goal for the club on 75 minutes converting from close range at the far post before that man Taylor Edwards would grab his second of the afternoon just before the end of the game scoring directly from a free kick just outside the area. FT 6-1

Bournemouth Sports FC 6 – Westland Sports 2

Chapel Gate 10.02.24 – KO 2PM

Westland Sports were hit for six against a resurgent Bournemouth Sports on a pleasant sunny afternoon at Chapel Gate.

The hosts took the lead in the 12th minute when striker Sam Darlow powered home a header from an excellent cross by Karol Borowski. Bournemouth had most of the possession in the first half and were rarely troubled. Westland Sports were reduced to 10 men midway through the half when a player kicked out at Darlow. 

Full back Matt Ellis went close to putting Bournemouth 2-0 ahead with a great solo run and shot that cannoned off the crossbar. At the other end and on a rare attack a Westlands striker saw his effort hit the side netting when in on goal. 

In form Sports striker Sam Darlow would grab two goals just before half time, a shot inside the box and a header from a corner to grab his hat-trick and send his team 3-0 ahead at the break. HT 3-0

Sports started where they left off at the end of the first half when a through ball by Jamie Trimble saw Jack Voisey played in, but his shot was well saved by goalkeeper Sam Watts. However in the 51st minute Darlow would grab his 4th of the afternoon with another finish inside the box. 

The hosts seemed to switch off for the next period and conceded two quick goals against the run of play. First of all from a free kick in the 54th minute a player headed home and in the 58th minute following some confusion in the Sports defence saw a player capitalise and score.

Bournemouth striker Jack Voisey raced clear of the Westland defence four minutes later and cooly fired past Watts to put the hosts 5-2 ahead before scoring again 3 minutes from time following a cross into the box by Karol Borowski and with his back to goal scored an overhead kick to complete an impressive display and performance from the men from Chapel Gate.

Bournemouth Sports 2 – Bridport Reserves 1

20.01.24 Chapel Gate

Bournemouth Sports secured back to back wins for the first time in three months with a 2-1 win against Bridport Reserves.

The first half was a scrappy affair with a cross field wind making it difficult for either team to find any rhythm. The visitors from West Dorset went close to scoring when the hosts lost possession in the middle of the pitch which resulted in a Bridport player taking a long range shot, but an outstanding acrobatic save from Sports goalkeeper Tom Straetmans denied him. 

The visitors did take the lead in the latter stages of the half when striker Josh Baker got onto a through ball over the top of the Sports defence to calmly finish past the advancing Straetmans. The hosts from Chapel Gate had the majority of possession in the first half, but were unable to create any real clear cut chances and at times their decision making in the final third could have been better. HT 0-1

Into the second half and Sports looked far more determined and played with more intensity and levelled early on when striker Sam Darlow headed home at the far post from a James Bergin cross. Indeed Darlow almost put his team ahead shortly afterwards, but saw his powerful shot from the edge of the area was well blocked by Bridport captain Jake Mansley from close range. 

Bridport rarely threatened in the second half as the hosts dominated in terms of possession and won a number of set-pieces, but were unable to capitalise on any of these. 

However it was Sports in form striker Darlow that would head home another cross from James Bergin in the 80th minute to give his team the win and three points. That’s six goals in the last four games now for Darlow as Sports look to climb the table into familiar territory.

Bournemouth Sports 7 – Sherborne Town Reserves 0

Saturday 30th Dec 2023. Chapel Gate. KO 12.30

Bournemouth Sports signed off a somewhat erratic 2023 with a big win and fine performance.

It was a somewhat tense opening 20 minutes of the game with chances few and far between at either end of the pitch. However the hosts broke the deadlock in the 24 minute when Sports striker Sam Darlow was fouled inside the box and scored himself from the resulting penalty kick. 

The hosts then doubled their lead on 33 minutes when Jamie Trimble converted from close range following a goal mouth scramble from a corner. Sports were further ahead 3 minutes later following excellent play from Karol Borowski which saw him round Sherborne Keeper Ryan Knibbs and his goal bound effort was tapped home by Sam Darlow.

Rampant Sports added two more goals before half time when central defender Cameron Shaw finished off an excellent solo run into the box and again that man Shaw would convert from close range following a corner just before the half time break. HT 5-0

Into the second half and the men from Chapel Gate seemed to drop off in terms on momentum whilst the visitors packed out numbers behind the ball to ensure damage limitation following the dismissal of one of their players in the first half. Sports added a couple more goals in the second half from Jack Voisey and substitute Dan Haywood, but could have got into double figures on another day.

An important win for Bournemouth Sports as they look to build on this result and performance going into 2024.
