WIMBORNE Town’s Southern League Division One South clash away at Larkhall Athletic was abandoned in second-half stoppage time after midfielder Jez Bedford required medical attention.

Magpies were trailing 3-1 in the 94th minute when a collision between Larkhall goalkeeper Arthur Nasta and Bedford injured the latter, leading to a lengthy wait for an ambulance.

The hosts had taken a two-goal lead into the break, Max Williams and Eben Mortimer-Taylor providing Larkhall with the goals.

A penalty for Larkhall immediately after the break gave the home side the perfect chance to seal the game, only for it to hit the post.

Harry Baker pulled one back with 20 minutes to go, giving Wimborne hope, before Williams steered home at a corner on 87 minutes to restore Larkhall’s lead.

It is currently unclear whether the result will be awarded, or whether the match will be replayed in full.

Magpies remain top of the division, although second-placed Frome moved level on 40 points after their 1-0 victory over Paulton Rovers.

Wimborne are back in action next Saturday, when they welcome fifth-placed Evesham United to New Cuthbury.

Magpies: Flitney; Hanger, Walker, Jackson, Scorey (Arnold, 45); Griffin (Beale, 80), Morgan, Bedford, Neale, Carmichael (Baker, 61); Lovell.

Unused subs: Munn, Griffiths.
