TOBY Holmes struck six of the best to send Wimborne Town through to the last eight of the Dorset Senior Cup.

The clinical frontman was in red-hot form during his side’s 8-2 home win over Dorset Premier League Gillingham Town.

His goals, along with a James Stokoe penalty and a strike from Sam Bayston, helped the Cuthbury outfit set up a home clash against Dorchester Town on Tuesday, November 28 (7.45pm).

Striker Holmes had already netted four times as Wimborne went in at the break 5-0 ahead.

And despite conceding twice following the interval, Magpies cruised into the next stage of the competition.

Asked about hotshot Holmes’s display, manager Matty Holmes told the Daily Echo: “What pleased me more was that his work off the ball was better.

“He had a real focus. His work-rate and movement were brilliant and they could not handle him.

“All of his goals were very clever and great finishes.”

Meanwhile, Verwood Town also booked their place in the last eight with a 2-1 victory over Western League Division One Sherborne Town.

A brace from Kris Anderton set up a quarter-final tie for Potters, who will travel to Wessex Premier Portland United in the next round.
