WIMBORNE Town were left to ponder a 2-1 defeat to Chesham United in Southern League Premier South, despite playing the majority of the second half against 10 men.

Ben Scorey opened the scoring for the home side at New Cuthbury on 22 minutes, with a strike which found the net from 20 yards out.

And James Stokoe’s side were then given a numerical advantage when the referee brandished a red card to Chesham’s Lewis Rolfe four minutes into the second half.

But despite being down to 10 men – the Generals rallied.

Jaden Thompson-Brissett converted from close range following a free-kick to restore parity, before Kyle Davison-Gordon headed in the winner with 10 minutes remaining.

Wimborne substitute Addwell Chipangura and Davison-Gordon then clashed heads late on but having received treatment, the youngster was thankfully able to walk from the field.

Defeat meant Magpies were left inside the bottom three, with four points from six games.
