Bournemouth were knocked out of the FA Vase last night, as they went down 3-1 to United Services Portsmouth.
Poppies did initially take the lead against the run of play, as Jack Kinge-Phillips’ cross went straight in.
However, the Wessex Division One side deservedly equalised midway through the first half as Dec Seidon scored.
Andy Todd then put the RN in front minutes later, and James Franklyn rounded off the scoring early on in the second half.
The original tie, on 30th October, was called off due to a waterlogged pitch, so it was rearranged to be played on the last day before a month-long national lockdown began.
The venue was also changed to nearby AFC Portchester’s Crest Finance Stadium, so a larger crowd could be accommodated.
USP opened the match with confidence as Seidon, Todd, Harry Sargent and Callum Glen all sent efforts wide of Sam Jones’ goal.
Jones also had to be in top form to deny two efforts from Tom Cain, as USP piled on the early pressure.
It was perhaps unsurprising to see the attacking prowess from USP, considering they had already defeated Wessex Premier Division sides such as Tadley Calleva, Brockenhurst and AFC Portchester in cup competitions this season.
It was perhaps a surprise then when, against the run of play, Poppies took the lead.
Kinge-Phillips was in possession on the left-hand side, and sent an innocuous-looking cross into the penalty area.
However, it sailed over the head of goalkeeper Tom Price and nestled into the net.
This began a better spell of play for Poppies, who broke up USP’s attacks in far more often.
Liam House then went agonisingly close to scoring a second, as his strike across goal whistled past the post.
Dan Seymour then saw his lob over Price be cleared off the line by a USP defender, after the goalkeeper had dropped a ball under pressure near the edge of his area.
USP grew back into the match though as they deservedly equalised on 33 minutes.
Seidon received the ball on the edge of the area, took one touch and fired home, with Jones getting a hand to it, but being unable to keep it out.
Just four minutes later and USP had their second. Franklyn played in Todd who drilled across goal into the bottom corner.
Bournemouth needed to up their game in the second half if they were to win the tie, but USP carried on in the same vein after the restart.
Jones denied Liam Kyle’s effort across goal, and Sonny Harnett-Balkwill headed against the crossbar from the following corner.
Todd then should have scored his second of the match, with his effort from three yards being deflected onto the crossbar after some heroic last-ditch blocking.
Martin Warren saw Bournemouth’s best chance of the half fall his way, with his header hitting the crossbar.
Inevitably, USP’s third came moments later. A ball was flicked on to Franklyn who slotted past Jones in the one-on-one.
The rest of the game went by with little attacking threat from Bournemouth, as USP looked to add to their scoreline.
Seidon’s dink over Jones hit the side-netting, Glen fired over, and Jones denied Franklyn with his legs in a flurry of chances.
In the end Bournemouth denied USP from scoring any more, but the scoreline could have been far greater in USP’s favour.
When the season hopefully resumes in December, Poppies will have Wessex Premier Division action to focus on.

A late header from substitute Ethan Fishlock earned a point for Bournemouth in a 1-1 draw with Fleet Town.
Leo Decabo had put the Blues in front early on, and it took until the 81st minute before Fishlock struck to make sure it finished all square.
Last week Bournemouth had been involved in an incredible FA Vase match, in which they came from 2-0 down to defeat Blackfield & Langley on penalties.
They were brought back from that high just eight minutes in.
Decabo struck an effort from 20 yards which found the bottom corner. even with Poppies goalkeeper Sam Jones getting a hand to it.
The two sides had played out a 2-2 draw earlier on this season, and in similar fashion to that the game was quite tight.
Jones was the busier keeper for the first half an hour, denying a couple of strikes from Dan Bone and another long shot from Decabo.
Bournemouth did eventually manage to assert themselves into the game, and arguably should have got back on level terms midway through the half.
Mario Schaller advanced into the box, cutting back to Liam House in the centre. The striker took his time in taking a shot, and was eventually blocked out.
House almost made amends a shot while later. Lewis Proudley curled a ball through to him, and his rising shot rattled the Fleet Town crossbar.
The open nature of the game continued into the second half, although it took about 20 minutes for a real chance to be fashioned.
Mal Thomas went through on goal, but in cutting back to try and get around Jones, Proudley was able to nick it off his toes.
Substitute Shane Barney was inches away from getting his head on the end of a delightful Jack Kinge-Phillips cross, while Fishlock used his head superbly at the other end to deny Fleet on the line.
Fishlock then got his moment to shine on the attack just a short while later.
He dove to meet an inswinging cross that was placed past goalkeeper Ryan Bone.
A minute later and Bournemouth had the ball in the net again. A cross had bounced off Martin Warren, which set up Jonathan Efedje to empathetically slam home, but it was disallowed for an offside.
Right at the death Decabo was so close to bringing all three points back to Fleet, but Jones got down well to deny his free-kick.
By all accounts a point for either side was fair. Bournemouth’s next match is away to Christchurch on Tuesday 20th October.

Bournemouth came back from 2-0 down to dramatically win on penalties over Blackfield & Langley, to progress to the 1st Round proper of the FA Vase.
In a breathless game, Blackfield & Langley scored twice before half-time, following a nasty incident which saw Jamie Wilson and Flavio Tavarez sent-off for either side.
Poppies incredibly came back with a header from Jonathan Efedje and a late penalty from Lewis Harvey to force a shootout.
In that Sam Jones was the hero of the hour, denying Harry Cooper to send the players and fans into furious celebrations.
Before this encounter Bournemouth had got back to winning ways in the league by defeating Amesbury Town 2-0.
That positive feeling was taken into this FA Vase 2nd Qualifying Round, as they made a strong start.
A free-kick sent in by Dan Seymour was held up by Lewis Harvey, allowing Jamie Trimble to have a shot, but it was cleared off the line.
Wilson then struck from distance just a minute later, which forced Harrison Guscott to get down to make a save.
The Watersiders then slowly started to apply pressure to the Bournemouth defence, with Tavarez causing plenty of problems on the left flank with his quick turn of pace and deft ball control.
Jones made a marvellous save to keep Bournemouth on level terms on 23 minutes, whilst Fatah Mahkloufi saw his shot go just wide of the post.
Just after the 30 minute mark the game took a nasty turn, as Wilson and Tavarez fell to the floor with both appearing to have their hands around the other’s neck. Both were understandably sent-off.
Blackfield & Langley were able to readjust themselves quickest after that commotion, as they took the lead in the next passage of play.
Jones kicked the ball against his own defender, allowing River Smith to get round him and slot home into an empty net.
Just two minutes later, and the Watersiders doubled their lead. Ali Zintany was allowed to advance on goal, and hit a smart finish into the bottom corner.
In the second half the game opened up, no doubt benefited by the added space left by having two less players on the pitch.
Jones did superbly to parry a powerful strike from Mahkloufi, whilst Trimble’s shot past Guscott was hacked away by Jack Barton.
B&L captain Edward Orvis was the next player to be denied by Jones, with his lobbed shot being tipped over. The defender then stopped substitute Max Norrish from pulling one back, clearing his shot off the line.
B&L then should have arguably had the game out of sight as Fawzi Saadi’s free-kick from near the touchline was tipped onto the bar from Jones.
It had by all accounts been a frustrating half for Poppies, as they had spurned numerous chances and it seemed like the opportunity of getting something from the game was slipping away.
However, on 77 minutes they gave themselves a chance.
A free-kick was flicked on by Efedje over Guscott and couldn’t be prevented from being cleared off the line for once by a B&L defender.
Bournemouth had the initiative and it paid off on 85 minutes.
Efedje was brought down for a penalty, which Lewis Harvey struck straight down the middle to spark wild celebrations.
All the hard work and yielded penalties. After Jones had saved from Josh Taylor, and Luke Bennett had skied his penalty it was down to Efedje to win it.
Agonisingly Guscott guessed correctly, and Saadi scored the next one to bring it to sudden death.
The following three penalties were converted, leaving it to Harry Cooper to keep B&L in the competition. Jones superbly denied him though, leading to rapturous celebrations, and a place in the 1st Round of the FA Vase.
Poppies XI: Jones, Seymour (Norrish), Proudley, Nicholls (C), L.Harvey, J.Harvey, Schaller (Martins), Trimble (Carvalho), Warren, Wilson (Sent off 35′), Efedje
Subs: Kowalczyk, Chambers, Martins, Carvalho, Norrish

Bournemouth got back to winning ways after defeating Amesbury Town 2-0.
An own goal and a Martin Warren header were enough to end the Poppies winless streak and get them a second league win of the season.
The previous game had seen the Poppies on the end of an 8-0 thrashing at Lymington, so they were keen to bounce back from that result.
They were quick off the blocks and took the lead in just the fourth minute.
Jonathan Efedje got on to the end of a through ball just before Amesbury goalkeeper Felix Davies, and his cut back hit the knee of a defender before going on.
The Blues almost conceded a second own goal just a minute later. A attempted clearance ricocheted off a another defender and almost crossed the line before being hacked away.
Amesbury did almost get an equaliser soon after as Osamu Allman ran through on goal. Thankfully, Sam Jones was alert to deny the striker.
It had been a breathless opening ten minutes, and Amesbury did slowly grow into the game after that.
Luke Greenway had a shot deflected wide, while Ant Croucher forced Jones into a save with his 30-yard effort.
Warren went close when heading over from a free-kick, whilst Adam Holloway hit a thunderous effort just over the crossbar after having acres of space to run in on goal.
Owen Holloway then curled into the arms of Jones, before Amesbury captain Chris Morris headed narrowly over from a corner.
Bournemouth ended out the half with Liam House stinging the palms of Davies, whilst Allman curled over from the left-hand side.
Amesbury had threatened on numerous occasions in the first half, and Poppies needed to reassert themselves in the game, and thankfully they did five minutes into the second half.
A superb corner was whipped on to the head of Warren who crashed in an effort off the crossbar.
It was the two goal cushion that they needed, and the following ten minutes should have yielded more goals for them.
Davies was on top form to stop a Kinge-Phillips volley and a powerful shot from House.
Amesbury then pressed for a way back in, as Greenway shot wide from an ambitious 35 yards and Lewis Harey brilliantly blocked two sharp efforts from Adam Holloway.
The rest of the game passed with relatively little incident, and Bournemouth were able to put Saturday’s performance against Lymington behind them.
Bournemouth XI: Jones, Seymour, Raney, Nicholls (C), L.Harvey, J.Harvey, Kinge-Phillips, Wilson (Martens), Warren, House (Carvalho), Efedje (Matthews)

Bournemouth unfortunately fell to a 8-0 defeat away to Lymington, as they extended their winless streak to five games.
A brace from Sam House, as well as efforts from Owen Fee and Steven Flynn saw the Linnets lead 4-0 at half-time.
Poppies weren’t able to keep the scoreline down in the second half, as a further two efforts from House, another strike from Free and a goal from substitute Conrad Chruchill saw it finish 8-0.
Lymington had won their first three league games of the season, and set out with intent.
Within just ten seconds from kick-off they had taken the lead. Fee struck an effort that found its was beyond the reach of Kacper Kowalczyk, and already the odds were against the Poppies.
The home side had to wait another 22 minutes for their second. A clearance had been blocked, and Flynn jumped higher than Kowalczyk for the looping ball and headed in.
Kowalczyk then redeemed himself saving two efforts from Dom Falco and a long-range Nathan Hurst shot.
However, a third goal came soon enough as House fired a penalty under the Poppies goalkeeper.
Bournemouth then finally fashioned their first proper chance of the match as Jack Kinge-Phillips shot wide across goal after the ball had been flicked onto him.
Just before half-time poor defending from Poppies led to Lymington’s fourth. Flynn intercepted a pass on the edge of the area, and laid it back to House to roll into the bottom corner.
Misplaced passes were often the downfall of Bournemouth’s attacking moves, and this carried on into the second half.
Aside from Lewis Harvey heading over from a free-kick on 48 minutes, the Poppies barely created a threat.
Fee got his second in the 59th minute after waltzing into the penalty area and placing the ball past Kowalczyk.
Lymington then got a flurry of goals towards the end of the game, as firstly Churchill slotted home after a superb block from Mac Raney fell back to him.
House then applied a simple finish to a cut-back just a few minutes later, before finally rounding off the scoring with another penalty.
It had been an abject performance from Bournemouth, with much needing improvement ahead of Tuesday night’s home game against Amesbury Town.
Bournemouth XI: Kowalcyzk, Mathews, Raney, Chambers, L.Harvey, Marteens (J.Harvey), Kinge-Phillips (House), Nicholls (C) (Carvalho), Warren, Wilson, Efedje
Subs: Heustice, House, Carvalho, J.Harvey

Bournemouth earned a 1-1 draw with Hamble, after an electrifying first five minutes that preceded a largely uneventful affair.
In the third minute striker Max Norrish cracked a delightful effort in off the crossbar, before Hamble’s Josh Batt tapped in from close range just two minutes later.
Bournemouth were playing just their second home league game of the season, after going down to a 2-1 defeat to Fareham in midweek.
They sought to make amends for that result with a blinding start. Norrish cut in on his right foot, and sent a brilliant effort in off the crossbar to put Poppies in front.
However, they couldn’t savour their lead for long, as Hamble equalised just two minutes afterwards.
A low free-kick on the right-hand side found its way through the penalty area allowing Batt to have an easy tap-in.
From that point on the game turned quite scrappy, with occasional half-chances breaking up the play, with most of those coming from Hamble.
Both Ryan Turner and Luke Mitchell sent efforts over the bar, whilst Brandon Chebby hit the side-netting from a tight-angle.
The closeset the Monks came to taking the lead came right before half time, when Michael Byrne headed just wide from a corner.
Poppies had not had much control on the game, but improved slightly at the start of the second half.
Norrish got close to intercepting a backpass to Hamble goalkeeper Ellis Grant, but whilst he got the ball round him it ended up trickling out for a goal-kick.
Poppies then had a huge let-off as Byrne somehow headed wide from point-blank range as a free-kick was whipped in superbly.
The game then became slightly more engaging with ten minutes remaining as Hamble’s Ricky Bull received a second yellow card for what the referee perceived to be a deliberate handball.
However, it ended up being Hamble who looked more likely to get a winner as substitute Jack Nicholas went through on goal, but it was deflected wide for a corner.
Lewis Harvey dragged a free-kick wide, after substitute Efedje was brought down, and that was the last of the Bournemouth chances.
Hamble then did get the ball in the net in the last minute, as a free-kick was headed in, but the referee disallowed it for a foul on goalkeeper Kacper Kowalczyk.
The full-time whistle blew soon after, with a draw probably being favourable to Bournemouth, but with the positive of it being another point gained.
Bournemouth XI: Kowalczyk, Martins, Raney, Chambers, L.Harvey, Nicholls (C) (Johnston), Kinge-Phillips, Fishlock, House (Carvalho), Wilson, Norrish (Efedje)

Giancarlo Bocchetti @GBitsMedia —
The nightmare and the hard days seem to be over at Poppies. Last couple of victories against Brockenhurst (home) and Cowes Sport (away) have raised the morale and confidence of the whole team.
Leonardo Cabeleira, manager of Bournemouth FC, shared his thoughts about the last two performances for Poppies and the upcoming match against Christchurch, a side rival that he knows well.
He confirmed that the back to back win against Cowes (4-1) on the Isle of Wight, was not a coincidence.
“We have been working since the pre-season trying to assemble the puzzle and we can finally see the fruits of our labour. Our victories in the last two games were not by accident but the result of our hard work inside and outside the pitch,” said the manager
The gaffer said that he’s not a superstitious man and the results have come as “a learning curve for the management and the players. We have had difficult days, but patience has paid off“, asserted the manager.
When enquired about the last performances, he confirmed that the team was lacking of, “the experience, without any doubt. We believe a lot in our youngsters, but we understood that it was very important for our game play to mix both. We all have learned from these mistakes, making us a stronger side“.
Edgar Zanin finally found his goal this weekend, the brazilian-bolivian player scored on the ’81 to finally be on the score sheet, a goal that according his manager, he was looking for so long. “I am very happy for him. He’s a young lad that works very hard on the physical side and during our trainings. Although he had a difficult start this season, I was convinced that his quality was going to show at any point“.
A special taste left the performance of Callum Farrugia during the game against Cowes, and Leo confirmed the quality that the management saw on the player
“We always saw something on him. Although he had Tyrone (Carkeet) as the main man on that position (left back), he keeps showing all of his talent and that he has a lot of potential as a player“, confirmed the manager.
Sam Jones made his official return to the club after a brief experience with Hamworthy United and Lymington Town. Leo did not skimp to praise the keeper.
“He is without any doubt one of the best goalkeepers of this league. His brief time on Hamworthy and Lymington surprises me. Sam is bringing his experience back to this club which will help James (Mayo) to fully develop all his potential and quality“, affirmed the manager.
Bournemouth FC will travel to Hurn Bridge this tuesday to face Christchurch for the Sydenham’s Wessex League. Ollie Cherrett’s side currently runs 4th and aim to continue their success against Poppies. Cabeleira admitted that playing against them is always special.
“I have good memories about my time in Christchurch and I will always be grateful for the opportunity they gave me. When I go there I feel welcome by so many people, that are the heart and the soul of the club. As a team, we have a lot of enthusiasm and excitement about this match. We will play a good side on a good pitch. They have on their squad some of our ex players, which has helped to improve the quality on their game so far this season. I look forward to see them all and stretch their hand again“.

Bournemouth FC is looking to obtain two league wins in a row for the first time this season, as they take on Cowes Sports away from home.
Poppies were able to overcome Brockenhurst 1-0 during midweek thanks to Matt Nicholl’s superb 50-yard effort, which gave them only their second three points of the league campaign.
They currently sit in 17th position in the Sydenhams Wessex Premier Division with eight points. In comparison Cowes Sports are one position and one point behind the Poppies, albeit having played two less games.
The importance of the match cannot be understated for both teams, as a win would help either side pull away from Solent University and Amesbury Town just below them.
The Yachtsman’s form has been underwhelming with one win and four losses in their last five matches, including comprehensive defeats to Horndean (6-1) and Hamworthy United (5-2).
Bournemouth’s form is exactly the same, having also suffered some heavy losses to sides like AFC Stoneham and Portland United, before the success over Brockenhurst.
Last season Bournemouth came out on top in both encounters, with 3-0 and 3-1 wins. However, this match looks to be a closer affair given the sides’ places in the table.
For team news, Bournemouth have goalkeeper Sam Jones returning to the squad after playing for Hamworthy United FC and Lymington Town FC .
Cowes Sports vs Bournemouth FC will take place at Westwood Park on Saturday 16th November at 3pm.
