Football: Cuss to give youth a chance at Wimborne

Bournemouth Echo: YOUTHFUL OUTLOOK: Wimborne Town boss Steve Cuss YOUTHFUL OUTLOOK: Wimborne Town boss Steve Cuss

BOSS Steve Cuss will turn to Wimborne Town's rookie reserves to boost his threadbare squad after revealing there is little prospect of adding fresh blood.

Magpies' injury woes worsened this week when crocked duo Mark Gamble and Ollie Phillipson-Masters were joined on the sidelines by James Stokoe (ankle) and assistant manager Paul Roast.

Following last weekend's 3-1 reverse at Clevedon Town, Cuss said he could draft in extra support, but while the Cuthbury manager stopped short of ruling out any moves, he anticipated no movement before Saturday's home clash with Taunton Town (3pm).

Cuss told the Daily Echo: “We're limited as to what we can do so we're looking to our younger lads to stake a claim for a first-team place. At the moment, we're just looking at what we have.”

Magpies: (from) Harvell, Arnold, Maybury, Oliver, Costello, Blake, Griffin, Davidson, Roast, Grose, Kemble, Webb, Stokoe, Phelps, Brimson, Burton-Hemmings.

  • Experienced duo Nic Jones and Warren Kenna should return for Bashley's home match with play-off chasing St Albans City in the Southern Premier (3pm).

Bash: (from) Jones, Rolls, Flint, Ansell, Marden, Bulpitt, Roberts, Soetan, Kenna, Joyce, Brookes, Odam, Strickland, Morris, Gazzard, George.

  • In the Wessex League Premier Division, Hamworthy United host league leaders Alresford Town, while Verwood Town travel to bottom club Downton.

Christchurch face a tough trip to reigning champions Blackfield & Langley with Bournemouth Poppies travelling to Horndean.

In Wessex One, New Milton Town host title chasers Petersfield Town while Ringwood Town entertain third-placed Cowes Sports (all 3pm).

Why does it sound like we are desperate for players? You should watch the reserves more often as the football is played the right way, on the floor not in the air, as I have seen with the 1st. Why is it that Steve is frightened to put the reserves in the starting line up? Will it upset the 1st team. Roastie has been a great player for Wimborne but he is not the future. The game against Didcot he was injured after about 10 mins and wasn't subed until the 80th minute.

Totally agree curryandstella and I expect they will do it for free to get the opportunity. I have watched both first and reserves & the reserves have played some great football better than the first at times. Their is also the young lad Donachy that is at Xchurch on a dual signing, he has won MoM twice in the time he has been there why not get him back. Haven't seen him myself over there yet but getting good reports back about him. Go on Cussy give the youth a chance you may well be surprised !
