Wimborne Town 8 Whitchurch United 1

JWL basement boys Whitchurch crashed to their to their heaviest defeat of the season with last Saturday's eight-goal mauling and manager Brian Drury admitted: "It was men against boys, they were much too good for us, and had six different players on the score sheet."

Wimborne scored four times in each half and Drury added that the running off the ball by the Dorset side was exceptional.

Whitchurch were 2-0 down within 10 minutes but Danny Winterbourne gave them a brief hope by pulling a goal back. "We had them rocking for about 15 minutes but then they just started again," summed up Drury.

The Whitchurch manager said that they three substitutes that Wimborne brought on were better than anyone on his side. "It's very hard," he added. "There are a lot of good teams in this league and leaders Eastleigh can even afford to bring in Saints players to help with their coaching. How can we compete with that? It's just unbelievable. We're trying to do the best we can but it's been much the same for the past 10 to 12 years, and the one good season we had we managed to finish mid-table."

Dury took on mighty Dr Marten's League premier side Havant & Waterlooville in the Hants Senior Cup this week as well as North Hants League outfit Vernham Dean in the Andover Open Cup but the game he will be concentrating on most is the JWL bottom-of-the-table scrap with Blackfield & Langley at Longmeadow this Saturday.
