VIEW FROM THE BAR v Blackfield & Langley 08-09

The View from the Bar  I didn’t make it to Brockenhurst on Saturday, but despite the defeat (and the fact they missed two penalties), it sounds like we were rather unlucky not to come back with at least a draw. Of course, we have the opportunity for a measure of revenge this coming Tuesday whenRead More


The View from the Bar  Sometimes I opine in this column that there’s not much to talk about. Now that’s definitely not the case this time. In fact, I’m pretty sure that to stop this running to half a dozen pages, I’m going to have to spread it out – as best I can –Read More

View from the Bar – Hamworthy United 22-02-20

The View from the Bar Last weekend was a bit of a washout, all things told. It was gutting that our day out at Brockenhurst fell foul of the weather, although truth be told had we gone, even with drying-out time in the licensed hostelries, it had been shaping up to be a soggy one.Read More

View from the Bar – v Baffins Milton Rovers 04-02-20

The View from the Bar If you’re reading this, then at least we got the game on tonight (although after Saturday’s Reserves postponement and the weather over the last couple of days I wouldn’t be surprised if this column gets consigned to the growing pile of VFTB’s never to be read. And, if you areRead More

View from the Bar – v Fareham Town 28-01-20

The View from the Bar Evening all. It’s always a pleasure to welcome Fareham and their merry band of japesters to Westwood – hopefully a decent contingent will have overcome the vagaries of the local ferry timetables to make it over tonight. I’ve always had a soft spot for Fareham and their support (and haveRead More


The View from the Bar Art’noon. Looks like another straigtforward affair this afternoon, then. Ahem… Gulp. Just what we need when we’re battling for points down the wrong end of the table, eh, a visit from AFC Stoneham? They pipped Amesbury, Hythe and Romsey to the Division 1 title in a four-horse race last year,Read More

View from the Bar – v AFC Portchester 04-01-20

The View from the Bar New year, new decade, but a familiar challenge facing us here at Westwood. We’ve had some almighty battles and heroic efforts to keep us in the top tier over recent years. Can we do it again? Well, watch this space, but I’ll be here watching with you and, win, loseRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR – League Cup v Totton & Eling 03-12-19

  The View from the Bar Blimey! All things being well, I’ll actually be at the game tonight. So what’s been going on in my absence? Have I missed much? Well, through the magic of modern communication, I have been able to keep a vague track on events. The last game I actually saw wasRead More

VIEW FROM THE BAR v Lymington Town 19-11-19

The View from the Bar And welcome to my new column. Well, that’s what it feels like, anyway. I almost feel like I need to reintroduce myself, but hopefully some of you can actually think back to the heady days of mid-October when I last made it to a game. Or wrote a column, comeRead More

View from the Bar – v Hamble Club 05-10-19

The View from the Bar I hate missing games, but today I’ll be absent from Westwood, unfortunately. And this promises to be a game not to miss, too. But I’ll get onto that in a minute. First up, the next batch of match posters are out today, so if you normally collect one or moreRead More
