Striker Tom Jeffes had made what was supposed to be his last appearance in a Magpies shirt in the Easter Monday victory over Winchester after taking a new job in London.
However, he surprised Wimborne fans by appearing on the bench in the 0-0 draw at Hungerford. What is more Jeffes played the last 30-minutes of the game.
“Tom rang me on Saturday morning saying he was available if needed,” said manager Steve Cuss. “We’d played just 48 hours earlier so he was needed.”
Wimborne’s punishing schedule saw them visit Sholing the previous Thursday night where they suffered the heartbreak of conceding an injury time goal, losing 1-0.
This Tuesday night (April 9) the Magpies face their biggest game of the season when they take on Poole Town in the Dorset Senior Cup Final. (More details next week).
This coming Saturday Wimborne are home to Evesham United, kick off 3pm. The following Wednesday (April 17) they visit Bishops Cleeve.
