Luke Gould scored twice, but goalkeeper Rory Kemp (pictured) was arguably man-of-the-match as Fareham seconds pulled off a creditable 3-1 win over third-placed Hampshire/Surrey Regional Division 1 rivals Basingstoke at Henry Cort.
Paul Metcalfe gave Fareham the lead, which Gould doubled before the break – but Basingstoke were constantly repelled by Kemp’s saves.
Will Jewkes pulled a goal back for Basingstoke after the break but Gould’s seventh goal of the season clinched Fareham’s sixth win in ten games.
