Hamworthy United beat Wimborne Town last night to reach the final of the Dorset Senior Cup.
The Hammers went 1-0 up in the first half as Lee Francis opened the scoring against his former club on a frostbitten night at the County Ground.
However Wimborne equalised early into the second half with Regan Mason slotting one into the Hamworthy net.
But it was ex-Magpie Jack Lovell who ruined the evening for Wimborne, with a dink over the Wimborne keeper putting Hamworthy 2-1 up.
Hamworthy then held on to secure a place in the final for the first time since 2014.
Wimborne won’t be happy with this performance, nor will they be happy with the situation of the club.
The Magpies currently sit rock bottom of the Southern League Premier South, having amassed a measly 11 points since the beginning of the season in August.
They were beaten 3-1 by Taunton Town at the weekend and their last win came against Gosport Borough last month.
Hamworthy have experienced a successful season thus far.
The club are sitting pretty in third place in the Wessex League Premier Division, four points behind leaders Horndean but with three games in hand.
Promotion could be on the cards for Hamworthy, who celebrated a 3-2 win over Glebe in the F.A. Vase, another competition that they have done well in this season.
Hamworthy Assistant Manager Chris Senior was full of praise for both sides
“We made a couple of changes and it was nice to freshen things up.
“I think we knew it was going to be a tough game, with Wimborne two leagues above us.
“It’s a final, it’s always nice to be in a final and it keeps the run going.”
He also looked ahead to the final against local rivals Poole Town, who ply their trade in the Southern League Premier South.
“I’d be lying if I said it’s going to be an easy one.
“We’ll make sure we give a competitive performance and who knows, with a bit of luck we may be able to lift the silverware.”
