ROMSEY proved once again not to be a happy hunting ground for Andover Town.

Having lost their 6-0 in mid-October, the visitors on Saturday went down 7-0.

In less than two minutes, Romsey took control. Jack Odam was able to beat his chasing defenders and deliver the ball so well only the slightest touch was needed to score their first goal.

Andover protested that the ball had passed over the touch line but the officials awarded the goal.

Andover had their own chances, but each time their attractive midfield play resulted in the Romsey defence either blocking the attempt or forcing an inaccurate shot.

One such chance was an inspired three-man attack started by Waledin Ahmed followed through by Josh Bertie and ended with Shaquille Gwengwe.

The shot was good and demanded an equally impressive save from Charlie Philpott, who put it wide for a corner.

Nic Turpin was the next Andover forward to be thwarted by Philpott from a pass through from Gwengwe.

The second goal arrived as Odam slotted home a rebound.

Then only a few minutes later Romsey found the back of the net again from a corner.

During the next 20 minutes Andover had a couple of attempts led by Jordan Raguette.

Due to an earlier Romsey injury the first half continued into added time.

The home side used this time to increase their lead by two.

The first was set up by Oliver Jenkins who unselfishly passed to Geoff Dunn to take the glory.

The second was almost an action reply but this time with Odam passing to Jenkins to make it 5-0 at the break.

After the interval the game was lot more even and Andover had the first chance as Ahmed’s shot was saved by Philpott.

Just after the hour mark Romsey added a sixth goal, when a free kick from just outside the area was cleared to Joao Aldeano to fire home.

As the game entered the last 10 minutes Turpin had his best chance. He controlled and turned with the ball in front of goal, passed out to Gwengwe who managed to pass it back to the centre forward whose shot was saved.

Then, with only a couple in minutes left to play, sub James Clifton headed in his team’s final goal from a free-kick.

Andover are on the road again on Saturday with a trip to in-form Downton.
