DORCHESTER Town boss Callum Brooks felt the Magpies’ 7-0 Dorset Senior Cup quarter-final win over Hamworthy United gives his side a platform to “build on”.

Tom Purrington bagged a hat-trick, while Tom Bath netted a brace alongside a Kyle Egan thunderbolt and a sumptuous 50-yard lob from Callum Rose.

Brooks, who sought an improved display after damaging 6-3 and 3-1 losses at Chesham and Farnborough respectively, felt the Magpies had delivered on his wishes.

Speaking to Echosport, he said: “We wanted to dominate the game, we wanted a really powerful performance with the ball but, more importantly, without the ball.

“Every time we didn’t have it, we wanted to show a real intensity to get the ball back. We wanted to play the match at a high tempo.

“It was also a difficult cup tie on paper and the aim was to win and go through. In the end, we’ve done that convincingly.

“Those games are not always like that as we’ve seen this season. I thought it was a good performance from our boys and something we can build on.”
