BOSS Matty Holmes served the first of a three-match stadium ban during Wimborne Town's 2-0 defeat at Didcot Town today.

The suspension was handed out by the Football Association in the wake of Magpies' 2-1 loss to Mangotsfield in January.

Assistant Danny Holmes was ordered to the stands during the Southern South & West fixture and players Billy Lowes and Sam Davidson were dismissed for receiving two yellow cards apiece.

Substitute Jamie Davidson was also red-carded in the aftermath of Sam Davidson's dismissal.

Former Cherries star Matty Holmes expressed his frustrations to referee Stephen Oakey after the final whistle.

While Danny Holmes was given a two-game touchline ban, Matty Holmes was slapped with a harsher punishment, understood to be over the views he expressed to Oakey.

Shane Traynor and John Macey took the reins for today's loss to Didcot.
