Pre-Season: Saturday 5th August
Southampton Sport Centre
Burridge recorded a comfortable victory in their first fixture without the recently departed trio of Allan, Bryant & Wilson. The fixture was originally scheduled at The Clump, but rearranged for the sand based astroturf more suited to hockey games it was designed for. In spite of this Burridge adapted to the conditions quickly, Greg Baker made his way through on goal from the left and neatly side footed home across the path of the goalie; Kristian Hewitt then intercepted a pass and was given too much time from outside the penalty area - his right footed strike found the keeper's bottom right-hand corner. Burridge continued to control the second half but were unable to add to their tally, ending the game comfortable winners.
4-3-3 (then 4-4-2 in 2nd half): Alex Clegg (Sam Schwodler), Luke Sanderson, Paul Dyke, Kev Willsher, Mark Sanderson, Jay Schwodler, Greg Baker, Kristian Hewitt (c), Bryn Schwodler, Lee Fielder, Paul Andrews (Matt Burkes)
