PREVIEW | Dorchester Town v Yeovil Town

Glovers head to Dorset for pre-season encounter

24 July 2018

Alex Fisher holds off his man PPAUK

Manager Darren Way will take a mixed Town side to Dorchester on Tuesday night (7.45pm) for their latest pre-season friendly.

The Glovers make the short trip across the border to the Avenue for the first of three matches on the road before the Sky Bet League Two season kicks off on August 4th at Bury. 

Before Saturday's trip to Corby Town, a mixed Yeovil side will lineup against the Magpies with a combination of first-team players, trialists and under-18s making up the matchday squad. 

Newest recruit Korrey Henry could make his first appearance as an official Glover whilst Academy prospects Gabriel Rogers and Tyrique Spencer-Clarke have featured in the last three matches. 

The injured duo of James Bailey and Jake Gray will miss out along with Chelsea loanee Nathan Baxter who's yet to link up with the Green & Whites having spent the first portion of pre-season with his parent club.

Fresh from the 5-1 thumping of Plymouth Argyle at the weekend a buoyant Town side will take on Steve Thompson's outfit who are so far unbeaten in pre-season. 

Victories over Salt Ash and Portland as well as a draw with a Plymouth Argyle XI will see the Evo-Stik Southern Premier League South side pose a test for Yeovil.

Tickets for the match are available to buy directly from the turnstiles with prices as follows:
Adult - £10
Concession - £6 
Under-16 - FOC

REPORT | Dorchester Town 0-2 Yeovil Town

Youthful Glovers see off the Magpies

24 July 2018

Korrey Henry in action PPAUK

A youthful Yeovil Town side came away from Dorchester Town with a comfortable 2-0 win in their latest pre-season fixture.

In an opening 45 minutes dominated by Town it took until seven minutes before the break to take the lead. 

Trialist D's long-range strike wound up in the back of the net following a goalkeeping error to separate the two sides at the halfway stage. 

After the break Korrey Henry bagged his first goal as an official Glover with a cool finish, whilst Town finished the match with seven Academy prospects on the pitch in a display of youth in Dorset. 

After four competitive outings against Swansea, Bristol City, Bristol Rovers and Plymouth Argyle, manager Darren Way took the opportunity to rest the majority of his first-team. 

Only Gary Warren, Henry and Alex Fisher started in Dorset, with five trialists, goalkeeper coach Steve Phillips and the Academy duo of Declan Rose and Gabriel Rogers completing the starting eleven.

Forming the substitutes bench, six of the Under-18s completed the matchday squad. 

Seeing plenty of the ball in the opening quarter-of-an-hour Town encamped themselves in the Magpies half, but couldn't test home keeper Kingsley Latham despite long-range strikes from Trialist B and Rogers.

Getting his first taste of first-team action 16-year-old central defender Rose provided an accomplished display, whilst newest recruit Henry looked lively up front as the Green & Whites pressed for an opening goal. 

Looking more and more likely, Fisher fired an acrobatic volley just over from 12 yards before Trialist C drove a strike into the arms of Latham after a strong run from teenager Henry. 

Playing out almost like a training match with attack versus defence it took Way's mixed eleven until 38 minutes to break the deadlock. 

Trialist D speculatively unleashed a half-volley from 40 yards catching Latham by surprise, who could only deflect the ball into his own net. 

Proving to be the difference at half-time the same eleven emerged after the break but came under their first spell of pressure. 

The Magpies enjoyed their best territory of the match up until the hour-mark but couldn't test the veteran Phillips between the sticks for Town and subsequently fell two behind. 

Fisher spotted the run of strike partner Henry and the West Ham Academy graduate made no mistake with the finish when one-on-one. 

Now trailing further the hosts squandered a glorious chance to reduce the deficit when Alex Stafie latched on to Tyrique Spencer-Clarke's backpass, but having rounded Phillips the Magpies man could only drag a shot wide.

Giving yet more game time to the youth, Way's side ended with seven Under-18s on the pitch with Rose, Kacper Kowalczyk, Daniel Ojo, Lewis Dix, Spencer-Clarke, Nestor Shako and Neville Nzembela all helping Town to continue their impressive run of results in pre-season.

Yeovil Town: Phillips (Kowalczyk 85'); Alfei (Dix 16'), Warren, Rose, Trialist A (Ojo 73'); Rogers (Shako 78'), Trialist B (Spencer-Clarke 63'), Trialist C, Trialist D, Henry, Fisher (Nzembela 78').
Subs not used: 

Dorchester Town: Latham; Egan, Martin (Stafie 54'), Rose, Carmichael; Stewart (Trialist B 59'), Trialist A, Winsper, Pope (Clarke 54'); Panesar-Dower (Lowes 54'), Blair.
Subs not used: Williams, Morris.
