Wimborne Town claim victory in the end as Bishop’s Cleeve can’t keep Magpies’ attack at bay in high scoring affair which finished 6-3.


The Mitres managed to keep it close for most of the first half before a 45th minute goal from Harry Morgan and 46th from Harry Baker saw Wimborne take a 3-1 lead.

The Magpies took a lead as early as the 5th minute when Lewis Beale netted off a poorly dealt with corner. While their fourth was in the 59th as fullback Oakley Hanger was played in behind the backline and which made it 4-1.

Bishop’s Cleeve equalised in the 22nd minute, through a Harrison Reeves header off debutant Ross Langworthy’s cross. But that was their only real threat of the half.

With a similar story for Cleeve’s second goal as Langworthy finished one of two clear cut chances of the half in the 76th minute. Before he scored his second in the 86th with the Mitres’ other chance.

Langworthy’s goals are split on the scoresheet by Baker’s second in the 78th. While it was Aaron Roberts who rounded off the scoring with a close range effort.

Throughout those first 10 it was Wimborne on top of the game as they challenged the home team on several occasions. But Lewis Clayton proved strong for the most part.

Langworthy was the factor of most of the Mitres’ attacks, however fellow debutant Jack Holmes had a shot hit the post from range.

Wimborne have looked most dangerous down the right side of the pitch, forcing Linden Dovey who’s was central in a back three to make some great defensive efforts.

The fourth for Hanger was Cleeve’s biggest breakdown in the defence as once again it was that right side that let the ball through, and Hanger slotted it on one-on-one.

Same can be said for their fifth and sixth goal, as once again it’s down the right side, as Aaron Roberts pulled it back for Baker, who converted nicely. Before Robert’s goal, and Wimborne’s sixth also a result of an attack down the right.

The link up between Jez Bedford and Beale was electric, as they created a dangerous opportunity which resulted in the corner which Beale initially scored off of. When the ball found him about 10 yards out and he shot it past Clayton into the roof of the net.
