WIMBORNE secured another season in South West One East with a dominant 41-17 victory against Swindon.

The Wiltshire visitors took the lead with a penalty goal before Wimborne snatched control with four first-half tries.

Darren Degeura touched down the first and fewer than five minutes later, the Minstermen had another when Harry Teversham crossed the whitewash in the corner.

Further tries followed thanks to forceful runs and finishes from Steve King and Jack Mason.

Joel Mariner found his range to add a conversion after the latter score and put Wimborne 22-3 ahead at the interval.

In the opening minutes of the second half, Jack Young added a fifth try for the Leigh Park outfit, with Mariner adding the extras.

A lapse in concentration allowed Swindon a brief hint of a fightback when they crossed for their first try on the hour, only for Wimborne to reply when Mariner outstripped the Swindon defence to score under the posts.

In the closing stages, Marcus Atkins touched down to break the 40-point mark and Swindon breached the Wimborne defence for a second converted try.

Meanwhile, New Milton stormed to a 66-20 win against Hampshire Premier rivals Portsmouth II.

The hosts ran in 10 tries to secure their ninth victory of the season.

Portsmouth claimed an early lead before Milton took control with tries from Nathan Smith and Ali Gunn.

The visitors rallied with their second score before Oli Baker-Clipston, Gunn, Charlie Jewiss and Jack Corbett dotted down.

Exemplary kicking from Adam Lavis resulted in successful conversions for all six first-half tries.

After the interval, Baker-Clipston added his second and third tries, either side of Jewiss’s second score.

Portsmouth continued to battle and reaped the rewards with two tries for a losing bonus point.

But Corbett touched down for a second time and Lavis completed the rout with a converted try.
