Evesham United looked on course to end a run of four games without a win, until a floodlight failure after 37 minutes against Wimborne Town forced the game to be abandoned with the Robins holding a commanding 3-0 lead. Debutant striker Carl Brown fired Evesham into an 8th minute lead with a clever back-heel following David Kalonji’s good run and cross. Then two goals in two minutes put Evesham firmly in the driving seat. A corner on the left eventually fell to defender Henry Eze who volleyed home from the edge of the area and on the half-hour the impressive Brown got his second and United’s third with a close range finish to convert Lee Osborne’s cross. Leading scorer Marcus Palmer rattled the Wimborne cross bar before the Jubilee Stadium fell in darkness to bring a premature end to proceedings.
Family and friends of former United player Neil Emms observed a minute’s silence before kick-off following his untimely death on 16th November.
