Here’s the report we sent to the Non-League Paper.
In the first-ever meeting between the two teams, Wimborne came from 2-0 behind to get their first season at Step 3 up and running.
However, it was Harrow who had the better of the opening exchanges with skipper Ryan Moss nudging Lewis Cole’s corner over the line to give his team the lead on 12 minutes.
On 33 minutes Michael Bryan seized on a mis-placed pass to coolly double Harrow’s lead.
Wimborne pulled one back just before half-time, and the momentum of the game changed. Toby Holmes lifting Luke Burbidge’s pass over keeper Hafed Al-Droubi.
Wimborne looked increasingly dangerous at the start of the second period and the lively Curtis Young was brought down for Jack Lovell to rifle the penalty home.
On 65 minutes Harrow’s Mark Mcleod was shown a straight red for a lunge on Young. And almost immediately his side fell behind when Sam Davidson was quickest to react at a free-kick.
Harrow were reduced to 9 men after 70 minutes when Shaun Preddie was shown a second yellow. Wimborne flooded forwards, and only defiant keeping by Al-Droubi denied the hosts a hat-full.
Stefan Penny fed Young on 80 minutes and the youngster opened his account for the Magpies to make it 4-2.
George Moore pulled one back for Harrow on 87 minutes, before Holmes completed the scoring two minutes later.
