Non-League Day is tomorrow Saturday 12th October when the Magpies welcome Tiverton Town to the J & B’s Stadium Cuthbury for a 15:00 kick-off.
Last season on Saturday 1st December 2018 the Magpies defeated Tiverton Town 2-1, goals from Toby Holmes (49′) and Luke Burbidge (87′) secured the 3 league points in front of 299 fans.
Hopefully the Magpies can repeat last season’s success tomorrow afternoon although, Tivvy have won their last 4 matches and have only lost once this season away to Taunton Town, other than that just 2 draws and another 3 wins see the Devonshire side from Ladysmead Stadium sit at the top of the Southern League Premier Division South table.
Just a mere 9 points between Taunton Town placed 5th on 16 points, down to the relegation 20th placed Hendon on 7 points while the Magpies are occupying 12th place with 12 points giving a very tight league table this season. Just a couple of wins or losses and it’s a jump of several place or sinking a few, the match tomorrow and the away matches at Farnbouough next Wednesday and Chesham United next Saturday are very important for points on the board.
Manager Danny Holmes reflecting about tomorrows match told Radio Wimborne; “I fancy us against anyone at home. At home, we do well. We just quickly have to learn not to give silly goals away early doors, but this is a completely different game all together. You have to respect your opponents at this level, and we have to be ready to go on the front foot.”
With Non-League Day Magpies are offering half priced admission for any season ticket holder from AFC Bournemouth, Southampton or indeed any Premier League or Championship club on production of their season ticket to the Tiverton Town match.
