Lee Wort treble helps Sholing smash through 100-point barrier

Daily Echo: LEE WORT LEE WORT

NEWLY-crowned Sydenhams Premier champions Sholing burst through the 100-point barrier with an 8-0 romp over Christchurch last night.

Having clinched the title with a 3-0 win at Moneyfields on Tuesday, Dave Diaper’s FA Vase finalists went goal crazy in their penultimate league game of the season.

Leading scorer Lee Wort warmed up for next Saturday’s trip to Wembley by burying a hat-trick, making it 11 goals scored in his last five games.

In all, the hot-shot now has 55 league and cup goals to his name in 2013/14.

Skipper Byron Mason weighed in with a brace and there were singles from Barry Mason, Nick Watts and Danny Cox as the buoyant Boatmen extended their lead at the top to four points.

Sholing, who have belted 16 goals in their last three league games, conceding none, will be presented with the Wessex trophy ahead of their final league game at home to Graham Rix’s AFC Portchester tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Boatmen’s reserves will be taking on Alresford Town in the Wyvern League Challenge Cup final at Winchester City FC (3pm).

Shame Christchurch could only muster 10 players, not Sholing's fault for beating what was in front of them & in fact, the visitors showed a lot of heart, certainly a lot more than their teammates who couldn't be bothered to turn up.

Something is seriously wrong at Christchurch. The inability to raise just one team from 2 squads underlines the fact that the 1st team Manager has failed to engage the players. Too many had left pre season and too many of their replacements felt unable to work with the man and also subsequently left. I would suggest a change in the summer is definitely required.
