WIMBORNE Town assistant James Stokoe revealed Magpies are still looking to bolster their squad.

The Cuthbury outfit suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Southern League South rivals Swindon Supermarine on Saturday, with goals coming from Conor Mcdonagh and Alex Henshall.

Boss Danny Holmes gave a start to new recruit Ashley Wells at right-back, the experienced defender has dual registered from National South Weymouth.

And Stokoe revealed the club were still trying to enhance their defensive options.

He told Radio Wimborne: “I spoke to a defender this week and I heard on Saturday another one has potentially come available at the moment.

“We are actively looking and speaking to people.

“It’s just trying to find the right available person at the right price, with the right quality to fit in the squad.

“We are trying at the moment. It’s not done overnight but we are speaking to a couple of players and trying to get some bodies in.”

Defeat to Supermarine left Wimborne 13th in the table, with 22 points from 20 league games.

Stokoe added: “It was a tough game against a very well-drilled, well organised side. Ideally we needed to do better.”

The assistant also confirmed goalkeeper Cameron Plain, who is on loan from Cherries, missed the contest through injury.
