STRATFORD Town returned to action following three successive postponements with a 4-2 victory over Wimborne Town at the DCS Stadium on Tuesday night.
It was their third consecutive four-goal triumph, which moved them into 10th place in the Calor Southern League Division One South & West league table.
In a game played in terrible conditions, the Magpies took a 16th minute lead when Jamie Davidson’s free-kick was deflected past Stratford keeper Andy Kemp. But the teams went in all-square at the break when Richard Gregory equalised from the penalty spot.
In the second-half, Wimborne regained the lead with a spectacular 35-yard, wind-assisted strike from left-back Ian Oliver that rocketed into the top corner.
Stratford leveled again six minutes later, when man-of-the-match Jamie Sheldon’s free-kick also got the benefit of the wind and sailed over Wimborne keeper Jason Harvell into the net.
Further goals from Gregory and Chris Sterling wrapped up the points for Stratford.
Stratford manager Carl Adams said: “Firstly I think that both teams deserve immense credit for playing so well in such appalling conditions. Once again though I felt that we were outstanding, especially in the second-half when the introduction of Simeon Tulloch made a huge difference.
“To win three in a row in this league scoring four goals each time is some achievement and I couldn’t be more pleased.”
