FA Cup heroes Winchester City will not be kings of the county this season.

Craig Davis’s side bowed out of the Hampshire FA Senior Cup last night following a penalty shootout with Hartley Wintney.

The Citizens had more than enough chances to have won the tie in normal time, including a second-half Tyrell Mitford penalty which was saved by keeper Adam Debois with Winch hitting the post in ensuing scramble.

Simba Mlambo had lobbed Desbois in the first half and hit the side netting and, prior to Mitford’s penalty miss, Brett Cunningham had an effort cleared off the line and Joe Cook struck the crossbar.

The shootout went to 6-6 and then 7-6 in Hartley’s favour before on-loan Reading goalkeeper Debois – an England U19 youth international - made the match-winning save.

QK Southampton could have been forgiven for breathing a sigh of relief when Sholing withdrew top scorer Dan Mason at half-time in the Southampton Senior Cup second round last night.

Mason had scored twice and Owen Roundell once to give the Sydenhams League leaders a 3-0 half-time lead.

But, unfortunately to QK, the second half was even more damaging as Mason’s replacement Lee Wort weighed in with four goals and young Brad Targett got one to set the seal on an 8-0 victory.

Mason now has 21 goals this season, while Wort’s tally stands at 18.

There was an even bigger SSC scoreline at Alresford Town where the Magpies dismantled Hedge End Rangers 9-1.

Sam Burt and IK Hill led the way with a hat-trick apiece, Louis Russell twice and Sam Doswell once.

Elsewhere Brockenhurst beat Bishops Waltham Dynamos 4-1, while Totton & Eliing bowed out 3-0 at Hamble Club.

Hamble Club’s Reserves also progressed in the competition, beating Team Solent 2-1 at Test Park on Monday courtesy of two-goal Rafael Ramos.

In the Sydenhams Premier Division Lymington Town stumbled to their second defeat in four days, losing 1-0 at Baffins Milton Rovers, Fareham Town beat Hamworthy United 3-1 and the game between Shaftesbury and Christchurch ended goalless.

In Division One, Matt Bainbridge brought AFC Stoneham back on terms for a 1-1 home draw with East Cowes Vics, while ten-man Romsey Town let slip an early two-goal lead to stumble 3-2 at home to US Portsmouth. Liam Magee and Pearce Farren had struck early for the Bypass boys.
