Wimborne's win sets up derby date with Poole
WIMBORNE Town will renew hostilities with arch-rivals Poole Town in the Red Insure (Southern League) Cup after last night’s 3-1 success at AFC Totton.
First half goals from Jamie Davidson and Matt Kemble put the Magpies in control before the hosts pulled one back through Luke Roberts with 20 minutes to go.
But hot-shot Mark Gamble was on hand to plunder a crucial third in injury time to end Wimborne’s seven match winless run and secure the Cuthbury outfit’s first win on the road this season.
And with fierce foes Poole lying in wait, Wimborne manager Steve Cuss said he was looking forward to a rare derby date.
Cuss told the Daily Echo: “One of the down sides to being in the South & West this season is the lack of local games and this is an opportunity to generate some interest by playing one of our neighbours.
“Matches with Poole are always well contested so we were pleased to get through the Totton tie.”
On the match, the Magpies chief added: “I thought the performance was excellent. We started very brightly before withstanding some pressure during the second half. It was a good boost ahead of this weekend’s league game.”
Magpies: Ackerman, Arnold, Maybury, Wilson, Costello, Griffin, Davidson, Hubbard, Stokoe (Gamble, 61), Kemble, Webb (Blake, 52). Unused subs: Brian, Smith, Harvell.
Hamworthy United manager Simon Browne was left to rue missed chances after seeing his side slump to a 4-0 defeat at Alresford Town in the Wessex Premier.
Presentable opportunities were spurned by the visitors before Town striker Zach Glasspool opened the scoring after 21 minutes.
Hammers continued to create but when Glasspool netted his second the game was up with Warren Bentley and Steve Brown adding a harsh tint to the scoreline in the final three minutes.
Browne said: “We were a little unfortunate to lose by four goals but we wasted chances I would expect our lads to gobble up and that proved costly against one of the league’s better sides.”
Hammers: Knights, Penny, Legg (Ayling, 70), Tayler, Horlock, Hester, Claremont, Lanahan (Biles, 61), Stacey (Saunders, 77), Pekun, Allen.
Potters: Fawcett, Evans, Homer, Kelly, Oldring, Gajic (Murray, 79), Saxby, Webb, Dan Munday, Lovell, Dyer. Unused subs: Elysee, Gilham, Darnton.
