GOALS from Luke Burbidge and Tony Lee proved not enough as Wimborne Town squandered a two-goal lead at Southern League South rivals Hartley Wintney.

Magpies were 2-0 up at the interval at Memorial Playing Fields before strikes from Dean Rule and Reece Miller within two minutes of each other ensured the spoils were shared 2-2.

A point leaves Wimborne 16th in the table, two points and a place above Hartley.

Magpies coach Dave Walsh told Radio Wimborne: “Overall I think we can come away being very happy, but with a tinge of disappointment we were 2-0 up and not come away with three points.

“We were fantastic in the first half. We did everything right in and out of possession, the boys were working really hard. It was an extension of how we played against Poole.

“Defensively we were very, very strong.

“But they weren’t going to play any worse than what they did in the first half.”

He added: “We didn’t deal with their quick little spell they had, which was disappointing.

“They had that 10 or 15 minutes but the response from the players after that was fantastic in all fairness.

“As the game grew towards the end, I think we looked more of a threat.”
