Wimborne Town find themselves at the summit of the Southern League Division One South, with fans hopeful of winning the league after a good run of form.
The club has had an encouraging start to their league season, averaging two points per game. Their only two defeats in the league came at the hands of Bideford AFC and Westbury United, who both sit comfortably mid-table.
Wimborne have registered an impressive 10 wins and stayed unbeaten in 14 matches out of 17 games in all competitions this season.
General manager Jimmy Glass said: “After disappointment last year, the team has improved, the club has improved, everything has been improved. Our aspiration this year is obviously promotion, and the plan for the club is to take them into the National League in the next four to five years, so every promotion we get is massively important.”
Wimborne fan Alfie Shattock said: “We’ve started well, and we look good but we’ve only played 12 games so we can’t get ahead of ourselves. We have a tough run of fixtures coming up, so if we are still sitting at the top come Christmas, we can start to feel confident.”
This great start comes after a fruitful campaign for The Magpies in the 2022-23 season, as they excelled, reaching the playoff semi-final, only to fall short to Sholing as they lost 2-1 in May.
Head bar man Clive Bailey said: “We’ve brought in eight or nine new players for this season, and some of these boys are from a higher level than we are. It’s a great sign for the club that things are going in the right direction.”
Wimborne’s next match sees a tricky away fixture on Saturday(November 18) against Cribbs who have also had a good start to their season, and find themselves just inside the playoff places.
