DORCHESTER Town Reserves carried on their remarkable run of form by beating a Wimborne Town development side 2-0.

The result sees the young Magpies make it five wins on the bounce and moves them up to second in the Wyvern Combination Midweek Division.

Manager Rich Robson had spoken before the game of his side’s moral, and it appeared that it was this confidence that saw them through.

An eighth goal of the season from young starlet Billy Mitchell, and a penalty from Owen Nicolson wrapped up the points for Dorchester on a potentially tricky evening.

It was also another sturdy performance from the Magpies’ defence, who made it four games without conceding a goal.

This was despite the threat made clear by Robson in his pre-match interview, in which he highlighted Wimborne’s pace and ability to knock the ball around as a potential banana-skin.

The result will be particularly pleasing with the addition of several youngsters to the match day squad, and bodes well for next week’s Memorial Shield match against Basingstoke Town.
