Wimborne get back on track with win over Godalming Town
GOALS from Mark Gamble and Micky Hubbard handed Wimborne Town their first win of the season in an entertaining win over Godalming Town.
The Magpies put Saturday's defeat at Yate Town behind them to get their Calor Southern League Division One South and West campaign up and running at Cuthbury.
The visitors had also suffered defeat on the opening day of the season, but dominated the opening stages.
The Magpies took the lead against the run of play when James Stokoe headed against the crossbar - allowing Gamble to fire home on the rebound.

Wimborne's lead lasted less than a minute as Dan Seabrook's rocket leveled the score.
The Magpies began to take control of the game and the pressure paid off before the break when Jamie Davidson was tripped in the penalty area - with Hubbard scoring from the spot to restore Wimborne's lead.
The hosts continued to dominate, with Godalming goalkeeper Justin Courtnage keeping the visitors in the contest.
Wimborne pushed for a third goal but lost momentum when Davidson suffered a nasty injury - thought to be a broken wrist.
The Magpies remained on top, but Jason Harvell was forced into a late save to deny Graeme Purdy rescuing a point for Godalming.
