Next up for the Magpies… The Rams

The Magpies hit the road again this Saturday heading for Buckinghamshire to tackle The Rams at Holloways Park stadium. Beaconsfield Town have been sruggling badly so far this season losing all 6 of their league matches. Although Tuesday night Beaconsfield Town defeated Harrow Borough 3-2 with only 77 people in attendance in the Southern League Challenge Cup to progress to the next round, their first win this season!

Meanwhile the Magpies, after giving chances to several young players to impress new manager Danny Holmes on Tuesday night, stunned the Poole Town supporters with a 4-2 win at the Black Gold stadium, Tatnam in the Southern League Challenge Cup to progress to the next round, this was manager Danny Holmes first win at the helm of the team.

Danny revealed in his after match interview with Radio Wimborne that Luke Holmes was likley to sign for our local rivals Poole Town but didn’t rule out a return to J & B’s Stadium, Cuthbury at some point in the future. He also confirmed that he now has a nice headache after good showings by the youngsters that together with Matty Holmes, the youth and development management teams, have been progressing, teaching and developing for the future possible roles in the first team.

With players like Matt Dodd, Harry Heylar, Josh Hall and Lewis Gunstone-Grey showing up well together with Sam Bayston slotting into the number 11 shirt, looking like he wants to own it. Also Charlie Tilsed and Aiden Shepherd had chances to shine after coming off the bench in the second half. With good competition for the starting eleven this can only be positive for the Magpies in the long term, and that competition for places is starting to hot up.

Travel details for this Saturday to Beaconsfield Town are as follows. The coach departs J & B’s Stadium Cuthbury at 10:15 sharp, the cost for Non Vase Members is £10:00 and for Vase Members is £5:00.

Wimborne Town FC Appoints Community and Academy Director of Football

Wimborne Town FC is pleased to announce the appointment of Matty Holmes as Community and Academy Director of Football.

In this role, Matty will be responsible for continuing the development of the club’s coaching work in the community and for setting up and overseeing the new academy that the club is launching in October 2019.

Matty Holmes joined Wimborne Town FC in May 2016 as 1st Team Manager and oversaw the club gaining promotion in just his second season. In addition to being 1st team manager, Holmes also began developing the club’s role in the local community. Today, the club has contracts with several local schools, bringing a high level of coaching to children in the area. Holmes has also set up and oversees the soccer schools during school holidays, the walking football and the Saturday morning walk-in football.

At the same time, Holmes has overseen the development of the club’s youth section, growing it from 5 teams in 2016 to 16 youth teams today, plus 2 girls/ladies teams and 2 disability teams.

“The time is right now for Matty to move into this new role. He has done a tremendous job in managing the 1st team, introducing a coaching and playing style and bringing a level of professionalism to the club on the playing side”, said Club Chairman, Tony Grant.

Holmes added: “When I first joined the club, it was always the intention that I would move into this role once the demand had been created. We are now at that tipping point. I am really excited about the future that this club has. We’ve a new ground being built, with new facilities, plus a tremendous amount of coaching commitments that I have been successful at winning. I’m also excited about getting my teeth into launching the new academy, which will help introduce a flow of talent from youth football into the senior sides in the future.”

At a 1st team level, Holmes’ coaching team of Danny Holmes and Shane Traynor will continue to coach and manage the 1st team until such time as a new manager is appointed. “Matty has introduced a certain playing style, which all the lads buy into”, stated Director Graham Bell. “It’s really important that we continue with this same style and playing ethos, so we will be looking to appoint a new manager who shares this same style and will continue the great work Matty has done.”

Bell went on to say: It’s a very exciting time at the club right now and I know that children in the community and academy will benefit immensely from Matty’s expertise in coaching and player development.”

And finally our President Ken Stewart said; “The Club would like to wish Matty all the best in his new role at the club which we all feel is perfect for him and a very important new venture for all of us and we thank him for his sterling work. We also would like to thank Danny and Shane for stepping up with the first team while a new manager is considered.”

Next up for the Magpies… White Tigers

The Magpies take a break from Southern League action this weekend with a long trip to Cornwall to tackle the White Tigers, Truro City, in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday afternoon at Treyew Road with a 15:00 kick off.

The team coach is fully booked and departs at 08:00 from the J & B’s Stadium, Cuthbury. Should there be a draw after 90 minutes there would be a replay at Cuthbury on Tuesday next week.

The Magpies will be looking to carry on from where they left off last Saturday after defeating Walton Casuals 4-1, with Luke Burbidge, Sam Bayston and Tony Lee on the scoresheet management and fans will be looking for more of the same with good prize money on offer for the winners.

Following this weekend the Magpies have a break from matches at the Cuthbury with away ties due on Tuesday 10th September at Poole Town in the League Cup and a visit to Beaconsfield Town on Saturday 14th, travel details for this will be released this weekend. Once all of these matches are over we welcome our FA Cup opponents Truro City in Southern League action on Tuesday 17th September so the matches are coming thick and fast for the Magpies.

The 2006/7 season was the most successful in Truro City’s history. At the first attempt they won the Toolstation Western League First Division by a record margin; retained the Cornwall Senior Cup and capped the season by winning the FA Vase at the New Wembley Stadium with a 3-1 win over AFC Totton, the first time the Trophy had been won by a Club playing at Step 6 in the Football Pyramid and in front of a record crowd of over 37,000.

Success continued for the White Tigers in 2007/8 season winning the Toolstation Western League Premier Division by a massive 17 points and thereby becoming the first ever Cornish Club to gain entry into Southern League football.

2008/9 was another successful season with City winning promotion to the Southern League Premier Division as Champions. This meant that City equalled the British record with four successive promotions.

Season 2010-11 proved to be another momentous one. Vying for the League lead for most of the season with favourites Salisbury City, Truro were finally crowned Champions by four points after a fabulous 6-0 win away at Salisbury and finishing the season with seven straight victories ensuring Blue Square Bet Conference South football for the first time. This set a new British record in that no senior club had ever previously won 5 promotions in 6 seasons.

The eve of the 2018/19 season saw Truro move from Treyew Road to ground-share with Torquay United, then this year as recently as June, the Club was sold to the Cornish Pirates, a professional rugby team, who have played in the English Championship, the league below the Premiership, since 2002 via a business transfer under an asset deal. This wiped the historical slate clean, heralding the start of an exciting new era for the Cornish club.
