The Magpies won their first trophy of the new season with a comprehensive victory over their Wessex League neighbours who played an hour of the match with ten men.
Dan Strugnell opened the scoring on 5five minutes when he turned Charlie Gunson’s in-swinging corner into the net from close range. The game was effectively ended as a contest after half-an-hour when Lewis Beale was tripped from behind as he lined up a shot, and the offending defender was invited to take an early shower at the new New Cuthbury ground.
But it wasn’t until the second half that Wimborne were able to extend their lead. Callum Chugg headed home Gunson’s free-kick on 48 minutes; Beale converted Conal Morrison’s low cross on 72 minutes; and five minutes later Aidan Shepherd’s pull-back from the by-line presented Harry Morgan with an easy tap in.
Wimborne’s Southern League season begins on 14th August. Details of their remaining pre-season fixtures can be found on the club’s website: www.wimbornetownfc.co.uk
