Hamble ASSC consolidated their recent ascent into the top half with a 2-2 draw at home to high flying Wimborne.

Wimborne were 1-0 up at the break but Hamble hit back with a Nicky Clark free-kick five minutes into the second half, before the visitors recaptured the lead with an excellent free-kick of their own.

"We put them under a lot of pressure after that," said manager Larry Clay, whose side were rewarded with a Robin Ackroyd strike drilled home from 12 yards.

Clay added: "I'm very pleased with this result because we showed that we're not an easy touch any more against a very good side and .

"We worked hard and didn't really deserve to lose on that basis, although they had a high percentage of the chances, as you would expect."
