Match Report

Sherborne Town Reserves manager Jason Lock praised his team for returning to winning ways against Sturminster Newton United, but still wants more.

The visitors to Barnetts Field were comfortable 3-1 winners in the Dorset Premier League, but the boss wants his players to be more clinical in finishing off games.

Lock said: “It was a struggle, but we won and managed to bounce back after losing to Portland United last week.

“It was not the prettiest of games and it was painstaking to watch. At the end we were in control, but we let ourselves drop to their standards. I want a bit more hunger and desire to kill off teams, well and truly.”

Injuries hampered Sherborne’s start to the match seven days earlier, and Lock must have feared the worst when Chris Cowley limped off within the opening 20 minutes.

However, the away team stuck together and thought they had taken the lead through Ian Jenkins, only to be denied by an offside decision.

Sherborne keeper Matt Warren kept his team in the game soon after, producing a fine save after a defensive mistake resulted in one-on-one opportunity.

Three minutes before the half hour mark and Sherborne did finally break the deadlock when Tim Trevett bundled in Jenkins’ cross.

Warren was called into action again before the break to keep the score at 1-0, with Sherborne doubling their advantage ten minutes into the second period.

Sturminster Newton paid the price for not clearing their lines at a corner, as Ryan Trevett’s deflected shot hit the net.

The victory was wrapped up in the 70th minute, but only after Jason Bond failed to find the goal with a header from a corner.

Dwayne Forshaw did not make a similar error as he profited from a slick build up involving himself, Ryan Trevett and Jordan Butler to secure the win. The hosts grabbed a late consolatory goal as Sherborne dropped their game

Lock said: “We played good football in very small patches and when we did we tore them apart. We are going to need a big squad now because we have got a lot of games coming up.”

 

Sherborne Town Reserves: Matt Warren, Jason Bond, Nick Jacobs, Matt Ward, Tim Trevett, Dwayne Forshaw, Chris Cowley, Shane Case, Ryan Trevett, Ian Jenkins, Jordan Butler. Subs: Chris Hedges, Lee Holt, Kyle Chesterman (injured in warm-up), Jason Lock.
