ANDOVER TOWN enjoyed their biggest win of the season so far when they easily beat the visiting leaders of the Wessex League Division One Hythe and Dibden 3-1 last Saturday.

However, it was no all plain sailing for the home side at Portway as after five minutes they found themselves 1-0 down after Sam Woodward lobbed Andover goalkeeper David Tasker

The visitors continued to dominate but they were unable to add to their tally and on 15 minutes the home side levelled things.

Harrison Hale closed down an attempted pass out from Hythe goalkeeper and then rounded the shot stopper to score and that was the way the score stayed to half-time.

After the interval, Andover started to dominate the game and Zach Hine fired just over, before man of the match Hale scored from distance to give the home side a deserved lead on 75 minutes.

Five minutes later, Andover made sure of great win as Josh Bertie scored after good work from sub Kieran Diaz-Benitez.

The victory moved Andover up to tenth and this Saturday they are at home to Laverstock and Ford who are currently one place below them in the table.

Then on Tuesday night, Andover travel to in form Petersfield for a first round tie in the Russell Cotes Cup.

Andover New Street also enjoyed a victory last Saturday in the Wessex League Division One as they won a five-goal thriller at Alton.

The Street’s three goals came from Luke Hooper, Alex Dockree and Callum Sweeney.

The result keeps them very much in the promotion shake-up as they are fifth with 11 points from 10 games and puts them three points off top spot with a game in hand.

Next up for Street is a trip to lowly New Milton on Saturday.

On Tuesday night, the side were in Russell Cotes action and lost 6-1 to Premier high flyers Brockenhurst 6-1 with Ilyas Warshow was the man on target.

Stockbridge also made their exit from the same competition on the same night losing 3-2 to Hythe and Dibden as Josh Graham and Callum Buck scored.

Last Saturday, the Robins won away at Clanfield 2-0 as Matt Hawkes and Callum Dart both finding the net.

This leaves them fourth in the Hampshire Premier League and their next game is on October 26, when they face Hayling United.

Hayling travel to north Hampshire this weekend when they face Overton United in a league encounter.
