TERRAS: Weymouth teenagers shine in Turlin triumph

Dorset Echo: ON TARGET: Aiden Jackson ON TARGET: Aiden Jackson


TALENTED teenagers Aiden Jackson and Luke Chatterton were among the goals as Wey-mouth Reserves ended their year in style at the Turlin Moor.

Visiting boss Jake Richmond was understandably delighted with the result, which came on the back of an indifferent run of form for the Terras.

Sean Zima was also on target twice, while substitute Paul Ford came off the bench to net his side’s fifth goal and Oscar Preece completed the rout with 13 minutes left.

“It was a great way to finish the year,” said Richmond, whose side play next in the Dorset Premier League on January 4 when they go to Sherborne Town Reserves.

“We had been through a bit of a sticky patch but on Saturday we earned the right to play and pick up the points.

“It was a brave decision by referee Mark Sers to play the game given the horrific conditions, and I think a special mention has to go to him for letting the match go ahead.

“You couldn’t play a lot of football but I was really pleased with the way we dealt with the conditions, and that’s something we haven’t been doing too well recently.”

On 16-year-olds Jackson and Chatterton, Richmond added: “They both played a big part in the game and I can’t leave them out at the moment.

“Aiden needs to get stronger but is learning all the time, and the same goes for Luke, who gets through a lot of work.

“How good they could be in two years’ time is frightening.”

With Lee Sharpe’s broken foot still keeping him out, Richmond moved Zima to left-back to accommodate Jonathan Will at right-back.

Despite playing out of posit- ion, Zima managed to get his name on the scoresheet twice with Weymouth’s first two strikes.

The first came on 15 minutes when he got to the by-line, cut inside, and curled a superb shot into the far corner.

That was quickly followed by a penalty after Sam Nichols was brought down.

More good work from Nichols helped set up Jackson to make it 3-0 only for Poole to pull one back through Edgar Zanin before half-time.

But the three-goal margin was restored in the 50th minute when Zima crossed for Chatterton to rifle home.

Ford curled in the Terras’ fifth having been found by Nichols and Preece’s neat finish sealed a comfortable 6-1 success.

Meanwhile, Richmond said he would like to thank all of the team’s sponsors for their support throughout the year.
