HAMBLE Club manager Ben Kneller said he knew what his side had to do to beat Westfields in the FA Vase.

The Southampton based club are experiencing their first season in the competition following promotion to the Wessex League Premier Division last season.

Westfields were the dominant team in the first half and should have been more than 1-0 to the good.

And Hamble Club made them pay for their missed chances by stunning them with four unanswered goals.

“We came here to watch Westfields against Loughborough University and were very impressed with how they played out the back," said Kneller.

"We knew they would do that and that's the right thing to do.

"But we knew if we went man for man and got in their faces and press them, we could nick it and that’s where two goals came in the second half.

"They could have gone 2-0 up with the chances they had, but to score in the 47th minute and then score again took the wind out of them.

"But you've got to respect the way they play – they still wanted to play and that's why we nicked it.

"The lads worked so hard and we had a few out injured and Doug Rowe, who was our top scorer last season, was sent off a couple of weeks ago.

"So we came here with a few injuries, but the lads were fantastic and they deserved and their second half performance was very good.

"Our league position lies.

“We are inconsistent but on our day we can put in that sort of performance.

“We knew there would be goals and they’re a powerful side but we’re absolutely delighted to go through and what it means for the club.

"We’ve got some good players here who have played at higher clubs and they enjoy it."
