The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Jeremy Fox

GOSPORT BOR­OUGH’S rel­e­ga­tion wor­ries deep­ened with a 4-1 home de­feat at the hands of Hunger­ford Town.

Boro sit just two points above the drop zone, as Alex Pike’s new look side were well beaten.

With the trans­fer em­bargo im­posed on the club by the Na­tional League lifted this week, Pike drafted in six new play­ers who went straight into the squad. Four of them, Richie Whit­ting­ham, Ra­mone Rose, Rowan Vine and Sam Lana­han started.

Early on, Boro had a new life about them and looked lively only to fall be­hind af­ter 20 min­utes, Manny Wil­liams pok­ing home a loose ball af­ter a goal­mouth scramble.

Jon Board­man made it two, scor­ing a con­tro­ver­sial goal with keeper Nick Jor­dan ap­pear­ing to be fouled.

Early in the sec­ond half, Gosport grabbed a life­line, when Ben Wright con­verted a penalty won by Tom Bird.

How­ever, it was a tem­po­rary re­prieve. Nat Jarvis headed past Jor­dan to re­store the Cru­saders’ two goal lead be­fore Ste­fan Brown’s long range ef­fort wrapped up the points. STAR MAN: Luke Wil­liams (Hunger­ford) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
