BUCS Western 2A
Southampton University 0 Southampton Solent University 0 (att 20)
University football's Southampton derby proved a bit of disappointment, and resulted in my first goalless draw after a run of 139 games without one.
To be fair I've seen worse games with goals, and there was no shortage of effort and there was some decent skill on show. But ultimately both sides cancelled each other out, and clear chances to score were few and far between.
Southampton University play Saturday afternoon football in the local Southampton League, while Solent run a side several divisions higher in the Wessex League. However, Solent's BUCS side apparently bears little resemblance to the Wessex team.
The venue was Southampton University's Wide Lane sports ground in Eastleigh. Like most university venues it was a busy place on a Wednesday afternoon, with various sports taking place. The first team football pitch was roped off along one side, and was parallel to a part-railed pitch, with dugouts, that didn't seem to be in use.
