Baffins Milton Rovers were formed in 2011 following the amalgamation of two Sunday League teams, Baffins Milton and Milton Rovers. They started out using the pitch at the southern end of Langstone Harbour Sports Ground (visited 8th April 2009, East Lodge 3 Fair Oak 0, Hampshire League 2004) but in 2015 they obtained a 50 year lease to develop a ground at the northern end of the complex. They moved at the start of 2015/16 season and the ground is still a work in progress. The new clubhouse structure is finished, but still needs kitting out, whilst there are currently half a dozen portacabins behind the goal at the entrance end of the ground being used for changing rooms/toilets/clubhouse/tea bar.
Both these two are in the Wessex League, Premier Division (9th v 14th) so it was a pretty even match up. Late in the second half, Fareham hit the post and then missed a far post header that looked impossible to miss. Just as it looked like we were heading for penalties (sensibly, there is no extra time in this competition) the visitors snatched victory in stoppage time, when a right wing cross was headed into the top corner, going in off the underside of the bar.
This now completes visits to all the grounds in this division.
