Late brace keeps the Magpies top of Division One South

Pitching In Southern League Division One South leaders, Wimborne Town, were made to work hard for their latest victory at the weekend as it took a last minute penalty to see them turn around a one-goal deficit to win 2-1 at Bristol Manor Farm.

Trailing to Ben Bament’s early goal with just ten minutes to go, Harry Morgan was the hero with both goals, the second of which saw him hold his nerve in what was a tense situation.

“It was a tough game,” said Morgan at the end. “It’s always such a hard place to come to so this was a massive win for us.

“To be able to come from behind and get the victory shows that this is a team that can go on to do good things.

“We didn’t play particularly well, but we did what we had to do to get the three points. It was a case of digging in on a tough pitch and our character and never-say-die attitude really came to the fore.

“My first goal was not the prettiest and then for the penalty it seemed to take so long before I was able to take it. The ‘keeper looked absolutely huge in the goal and I think he managed to get a hand to it; there’s also a massive divot where I slipped but thankfully it snuck in.

“We’re on the right path, we just need to keep going and take things game-by-game.”

That’s two away wins in a row for the Magpies who return to home action for the first time in six weeks at the weekend with the visit of Bemerton Heath Harlequins.
