Trojans overwhelmed New Milton 74-13 in their Hampshire 1 clash at Stoneham Lane, yet the Trojans' coach, Richard Cheal, was frustrated his side had not scored even more points.

Cheal lamented: "It was a performance typical of a match-rusty side.

"We appeared to have lost most of our continuity, although it was quite a good warm-up game for the harder ones to come.

"I was disappointed we didn't put more points on as they were there for the taking."

Flying winger, Oluseyi Segun helped himself to four of the 12 tries that Trojans scored.

There were special celebrations for the try Kevin Baker scored, since it was his first in over 100 first team games for the club.

Millbrook gained an 18-8 victory over Ventnor that prop Richard Goodridge described as 'comfortable'.

Ventnor made a spirited start to both periods of the game, and were first to score.

They could have increased the lead but for a deliberate knock-on that occurred too far out for a penalty try to be awarded.

However, Millbrook scored one excellent try in the first-half and another in the second to seal victory, before Ventnor gained a consolation late in the game.

Ventnor spokesman, Warren Fresle said: "We were a bit disappointed, but the game was more encouraging and some positive things came out of it for us."

Hamble lost 15-3 at Guernsey and spokesman Pete Woolcock said: "We never looked like scoring a try.

"Guernsey scored early and late in the game, but our forwards gave them a torrid time in between. Unfortunately our backs lacked the bite to score tries."

Farnborough continued their march towards the Division 1 title with a 30-19 beating of Romsey, and Petersfield maintained the pressure on Trojans for second place with a 28-13 home victory over Sandown & Shanklin.

Eastleigh suffered another Hampshire 2 defeat, going down 32-6 to Nomads. The hosts started and finished brightly but were no match for Nomads between whiles.

AC Delco fielded a number of inexperienced players who played quite well against Kingsclere, but the well-drilled visitors ran out 50-7 winners in their Hampshire 3 meeting.

Alresford scored 16 tries in thrashing Brockenhurst 100-0.

Mike Deaton lead the way with three, New Zealander Zahi Khouri grabbed a brace and Ed McDermott adding 10 conversions to his couple of penalties.
