Meanwhile Wimborne ran into financial problems twelve months ago with reported debts of around £100,000 but chairperson Paula Henley says the club is on a much firmer footing now.

"We were fortunate in a way, because a lot was owed to people who were friends of the club," said Henley as reported by the Daily Echo last week. 

"But nevertheless, it was money owed to them and we paid that back.

“We unfortunately had to make some redundancies and I had to remove the playing budget until we got back on an even keel, which we managed to do within about four months.

“The position we’re in now is typical of a non-league football club. We don’t have any debt but there’s a way to go. We still need to generate more income to support the club.”
