New Year Weekend Sports Report

Portland United travelled to play Bournemouth Poppies on Saturday and returned to Grove Corner with 2 goals to 1 Wessex Premier League victory.

The Blues took an early lead through Connor Bent then the Poppies equalised with a penalty.

Going into the final minute of the 90 Sam Gadsby lashed the ball into the Poppies net to secure victory for his team.  Portland play their next home league fixture on Tuesday evening against Shaftsbury, kick off 7 45.

Dorchester’s Southern Premier League match at Tiverton on New Year’s Day was postponed due to a flooded pitch.

The New Year’s Day ancient tradition of Nurdling took place on the Old Roman Road in Upwey near the Ship Inn where 2 teams, Red and Blue attempt to out-nurdle each other. The rules are somewhat fogged in the passage of time, but local builder Bill Crumbleholme was there to keep order.

There are claims this game is so ancient it dates to pre-Roman Britain. There are references to it being played as far back as 1602 in Cornwall. Another account says it was also played in Dorset in 1583.

Also on New Year’s Day Weymouth Football Club’s senior men’s team hosted Weston Super Mare at the Bob Lewis Stadium and trailed by 3 goals to 1 until the 78th minute of the game when Brandon Goodship scored his second goal, the first a penalty 6 minutes into first half overtime to put the Terras back into contention.

Manager Bobby Wilkinson bought on sub Ezio Touray and his decision paid off in the 88th minute when Touray headed the ball into the back of the Seagull’s net to claim a share of the National League South points.

Our Man at the Match said, “I thought that at 3 goals to 1 down we were going to lose, but all credit to the players they kept plugging away in very difficult conditions and to win 4 points from Weston over the weekend I will settle for that. As for my Man of the Match it’s hard to pick 1, but if I have to, it has to be Goodship who is in a rich vein of form at present and long may it continue”.
