Danny Holmes admitted he had been left “a bit miffed” with the match officials after he watched his Wimborne charges squander a two-goal lead against Taunton Town.

Buoyed by a first win in four last time out against rivals Dorchester, Magpies looked comfortable against a side in the play-offs of Southern League South for much of their FA Trophy first qualifying round encounter, writes Jack Tanner.

Thanks to two Sam Bayston strikes either side of half-time, Wimborne were cruising until a contentious penalty decision was given against them by referee Barrie Small, allowing the visitors back into the game and draw 2-2.

Holmes told the Daily Echo: “This season I’ve been a bit miffed by some of the decisions with the officials, but you just have to get on with it.

“I felt overall we were a bit hard done by – we could have nicked it at the end.

“Fair play to them, they came back and were resolute, and brought it back to 2-2. On the whole, we maybe deserved to nick it.”
