WOOL United won the Dorset Junior Cup in an exciting 3-1 victory over Okeford United at Hamworthy’s County Ground.

The final was in played in a very good spirit in front of a vociferous set of supporters who attended to cheer on their team.

Both teams attacked at every opportunity in the first half, but Okeford came the closest to breaking the deadlock on 23 minutes, when a cross-field shot from the right hit the foot of the post and rebounded into the grateful arms of Damien Fisher in the Wool goal.

After a goalless opening half, Wool cleared a shot off the line on the hour mark and then went ahead seven minutes later through substitute Matt McKeown.

However Wool’s lead only lasted two minutes, as Tim Westlake rounded a defender on the Okeford left flank before neatly firing a shot into the Wool net.

Wool regained the lead with a well-struck shot from Richie Sheppard from just outside the penalty area, which managed to escape the fingertips of Mike Sheppard in the Okeford goal.

In the closing minutes, with the Butterboys from North Dorset looking for an equaliser, Wool caught them with a swift counter attack as Martin Rolfe rounded the goalkeeper to place a shot into the empty net to complete the scoring.

After the final whistle, Rob Stillman, Wool captain sportingly permitted Joe Brown, a long-serving player of the club to receive the trophy from Alison Clarke, a member of the DCFA Governance Committee.
