Team Solent win Hampshire Senior Cup

Southampton Solent University soccer team Team Solent, sponsored by SES Autoparts Ltd, beat off stiff competition to win the Hampshire Senior Cup at St. Marys 3-2 against Hamble last month. Trailing 2-1 at half time to the Hampshire Premier League Champions, former Tottenham academy player Jesse Waller-Lassen became Team Solent’s hero with two goals on the night, and put through Sam Byles to score the winner with seven minutes to go to gain a great victory.

Southampton Solent University is where Lisa studied to get her BA 2-1 in Business Management before setting off on her travels around the world. SES Autoparts is Lisa’s parents’ family business, which started sponsoring Team Solent in 2013.
