Club Statement: Toby Holmes

Wimborne Town FC can confirm that Tobias Holmes has agreed terms and signed for Salisbury FC.

Toby, the league’s second top scorer with 30 goals, joins a Salisbury side who finished fourth in the Evo-Stik Premier Division South and whose season ended with a narrow 3-2 defeat in the Play Off semi-final to Met Police.

Having been an instrumental part of the Magpie’s success over the last three years, including promotion from the Southern League, an emphatic 7-0 Dorset Senior Cup success in 2018 and survival in the Club’s debut season at the Premier South, Toby leaves with the best wishes and gratitude of everyone at Wimborne Town FC.

First Team Manager Matty Holmes:

We thank Toby for his services over the last three seasons. His contribution to the team has been superb and he has been a big reason why we have finished in record high league positions for the past three seasons.  

We wish him well in his new venture.

Toby Holmes scored 30 goals and registered 6 assists in 39 league appearances this season, the statistics improving to 37 goals and 9 assists in 43 games within all competitions.In total, his record stands at an incredible 132 goals in 143 appearances for the club.Having signed from Dorchester in the summer of 2016, Holmes went on to win the League Golden Boot, “Manager’s player” and ”Fantasy player” at the 2017-18 season awards.

Toby’s final goal came as a consolation in a 2-4 home defeat to eventual relegated side Basingstoke Town in late March.

As a fan favourite and well liked individual, we wish Toby all the very best of luck.
