Boss Steve Wilson believes Bourne Town’s youngsters are learning to develop.

He was “very pleased” with “a professional job” as the Wakes saw off rock-bottom Burton Park Wanderers on Saturday.

Wilson said: “It could have been a banana skin because they are going to win a game sooner or later.

“Conditions weren’t great and we are not a physical side so I stressed before the game that Burton would see this as a big chance for their first win of the season.

“Our lads were spot on with their focus and they totally deserved to come away with three points.

“Against the wind in the first half Alex Brown made a couple of saves before we changed the formation and responded.

“We showed quality on the ball in the second half and that brought us two goals to finish off good moves.

“It was a professional job by a young side who are taking what we tell them on board and learning in every game.

“Unfortunately we seem to have a habit of following up a good performance with a bad one.

“Hopefully that won’t be the case again on Saturday when we are at home to Whitworth.

“They have picked up a couple of good results so it should be a decent test.”

Zak Munton gave Bourne the lead after 59 minutes and Craig Rook confirmed the success with four minutes remaining.

Dan Smith and Dan Wilson, who were unused substitutes on Saturday, could be fully fit to face Whitworth.

Bourne: Brown, Bottreill, Zealand, Moss, Jesson, Blanchard, Munton, S Wilson, Mason, Rook, Sculthorpe (Firth).
