WIMBORNE'S run in the Dorset Senior Cup is over after they were beaten by Southern League South rivals Dorchester Town in the semi-finals.

Danny Holmes made wholesale changes for the clash and saw his charges well beaten 4-1, with Aidan Shepherd netting a late consolation.

In a battle of the Magpies, Dorchester took an early lead in Leigh Robinson's first home game in charge.

Tom Blair did the damage, latching onto a Luke Winsper pass before slotting under goalkeeper Lewis Gunstone-Gray.

Wimborne looked to respond with James Stokoe and Shepherd going close while Antonio Diaz saw a goal ruled out for offside.

But it was the hosts who doubled their tally shortly before the break when Gunstone-Gray turned a Tiago Sa corner into his own net.

Holmes turned to his bench at half-time, introducing Ben Morgan and Will Prior, but the game was soon put to bed with Blair bagging his second of the night.

Shepherd pulled a goal back with 15 minutes to play, but Dorch had the last laugh, adding a fourth of their own moments later when Cherries loanee and man-of-the-match Jack Torniainen slammed in from the edge of the box.

Dorchester will face either Weymouth or Wessex One outfit Verwood Town in the final. Their last-four clash was postponed last night due to a waterlogged pitch.

Magpies: Gunstone-Gray, Doe (Morgan, h-t), Poole, Helyar, Buck (Prior, h-t), Makhloufi (Bradley, 58), Stokoe, Young, Diaz, Burbidge, Shepherd.

Unused subs: Chipangura, Phillips (g/k).
