Bashley stormed into the third round of the Hants senior Cup with a 5-1 win over local New Forest rivals Lymington & New Milton at Bashley Road.

Craig Davis gave the home side the lead after 20 minutes, before Stuart Hussey doubled Bob Higgins' team's advantage. Matt Town was brought down inside the Bash penalty area, and Richard Glenister pulled a goal back just before half-time

The second period produced a tight local encounter, but with just minutes remaining, the Dr. Martens Eatern Division outfit showed why they play in a higher league, with three goals in four minutes. Hussey notched his second of the night, before substitute Richard Gillespie struck twice to seal the Linnets fate.

Lymington & New Milton : Kearn, Drew, B. Phillips, Kemp, Morris, Gazzard, G. Grace, Keeping, Glenister, Town, Marwood [Smith 55], unused subs : Bailey-Pearce, Metcalf.
