FOOTBALL: Richmond feels Terras should have hit double figures
WEYMOUTH RESERVES 6
JAKE Richmond felt his side should have racked up double figures against the Cranes.
The Weymouth reserve-team boss saw his side waste a glut of opportunities in the first half before eventually putting the game to bed after the break.
Carl McClements bagged a brace while other strikes came from Luke Chatterton, Paul Ford, Aidan Jackson and Lee Sharpe, but Richmond was still not wholly satisfied.
He said: “It should have been 10 or 12. In the first half we scored one but apart from that we couldn’t finish for toffee.
“We dominated from start to finish and had we showed more composure and been a bit more clinical we could have racked up a cricket score.
“Defensively we looked solid and we were also good in the middle of the park but I am still a little disappointed we didn’t score more.
“It sounds a bit like I am nitpicking but I want the lads to keep pushing and improving all the time because, at the end of the day, that is what it is all about.”
Louis Smith, Oscar Preece and McClements all wasted good openings in the first half but the latter did the find break the deadlock in the 12th minute following Sean Zima’s flick-- on.
The same two players then combined again 10 minutes after the break for Mc-Clements to add his second and after that it was just a case of how many.
Chatterton struck the third after a good play down the right from Preece before substitute Ford netted the goal of the game with a fine virtuoso effort that once again underlined his growing poten-tial.
Aidan Jackson also came off the bench and scored but the final strike eventually came from Sharpe in the closing stages.
Richmond added: “Our keeper did not have a single save to make and, in the second half, our performance was 10 out of 10.
“Paul came on and was outstanding and I thought Adam Anstey and Aston Butcher at the back were again very solid.
“Those two are forming an excellent partnership and it’s just a shame we are going to lose Aston to a three-game suspension now because together, they have both been superb.”
The Terras now sit third in the Bespoke Teamwear Dorset Pre-mier League, just one point adrift of leaders Portland Unit- ed, having played one game more.
Terras: Blundell, Sharpe, Anstey, Butcher, Brown, Harvey, Smith (Chatterton 30), Symes, Preece, Zima (Ford 60), McClements (Jackson 70).
