Bournemouth FC fell to their second defeat in a row as Hamworthy United claimed all three points in the Wessex Premier Division, moving the Poole-based club up to fourth.

Despite Harrison Guscott saving two penalties, Poppies conceded twice at Victoria Park on Tuesday night as they continue to struggle for points.

The Hammers opened the scoring early on, with a fine finish from Max Wilcock who broke the deadlock after just three minutes. Hamworthy doubled their lead in the second half when a misjudgement in defence allowed Lee Francis to fire home from point blank range and Poppies paid the price.

Bournemouth did revitalise the game with a clever goal scored by Nil Canadell who finished a well worked move from 12 yards out.

The win moves Hamworthy continue their unbeaten run whilst Poppies remain in eighteenth on just nine points.

Despite the defeat, Poppies keeper Harrison Guscott was happy with the two penalty saves.

Speaking to NERVE SPORT, he said: “I’ve been working on them a lot in training, so I guess it’s paid off.

“[I am] really happy to pull them back.”

The home side felt they culd have got something from the tie and after the game, Robert Gillett of the Bournemouth management team, said: “It was unlucky to lose it, we should’ve got a result but that’s football I suppose.”

“We need to look after the ball a bit more, in the right areas, at the right time - we go again Saturday, that’s all we can ask for."

Bournemouth FC head to Fareham Town next whilst Hamworthy travel to Moneyfields FC.
