DORCHESTER Town boss Steve Thompson jokingly likened the move for the Magpies’ winning goal at Poole Town to the famous Brazilian team goal in the 1970 World Cup final.

Thompson referred to the slick passing by the Brazilians to set up Carlos Alberto’s legendary goal in the 4-1 win over Italy.

While Dorchester’s move was not as majestic, the Magpies’ quick break helped set up Ben Seymour for his 12th goal in 15 games after Callum Rose had audaciously played the ball out from defence.

Speaking to Echosport, Thompson praised the “quality” of the football shown to create Seymour’s strike.

He said: “It was a great goal, a great bit of quality. Callum started it off – a little bit like the Brazil ’70 World Cup goal. I’m not sure I want him doing that too often, but it worked.

“Then Kyle (Egan) hit a lovely diagonal ball, Sam (Jackson) laid it across. It was all one and two-touch stuff, a lovely goal to score.

“Obviously that helped in a big way. It gave us something to hold on to second half and we managed to hold on to it, despite all the pressure Poole had.”

Victory elevated Dorchester into 16th position where Thompson’s men currently enjoy the best league away record, with 23 points, in the division.

Dorchester next visit National League side Barnet in the FA Trophy second round on Saturday (3pm).
