King eyes Smith deal

ON TARGET: Mark Ford

ON TARGET: Mark Ford

First published in Local Sport by

BRENDON King is hoping to tie up a deal for striker Dan Smith in the coming days.

The ex-Truro City man, who has been on trial at the Bob Lucas Stadium, was on target last night in a 3-2 victory for the Terras at Wimborne Town, which took their pre-season tally to four wins from four.

Mark Ford also continued his scoring streak while the third came via an own goal.

King told Echosport: “We played really well in the first half and by the half-time interval we were 2-0 up and coasting.

“However, we then came out after the break and were a little bit sloppy, which allowed them to get back into it.

“In some ways I am glad that happened because it helps stop people getting complacent and over confident.

“The tempo of the game was much higher than the previous three and we certainly got a lot more out of it.”

On the subject of Smith, King added: “Dan was outstanding and hopefully we can tie something up with him by the weekend.”

Weymouth’s next friendly will see them host Dorchester Town this coming Saturday (3pm).
