SAM Bayston confessed Dorchester Town’s entertaining style of play is “music to my ears”.

Former Wimborne winger Bayston joined the club under previous boss Leigh Robinson in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In his debut season with the Magpies, Bayston has seen a change in manager with Robbie Herrera’s appointment after Robinson stepped down due to work commitments.

Former Fulham left-back Herrera has spoken of his desire to implement an attractive brand of football and Bayston is excited by the prospect.

He told Echosport: “It was a big step up for myself after a good year at Wimborne where I established myself as a Southern Premier player.

“With the change in manager halfway through the second lockdown in November, we started well and found our feet.

“I’ve never been at a club where we’ve had so many new players. We’ve had to gel quickly in awkward times.

“I remember the first three or four training sessions we couldn’t do any tackling or anything, we were under such tight restrictions.

“You’re trying to bond with players but you’ve got to be two metres away from them, it was crazy.

“Obviously Leigh left and Robbie’s come in with Kev (Hodges, assistant). They’ve been amazing.

“Robbie does all the coaching and he’s a player, like myself, that likes to play.

“Like we had at Wimborne and any club I’ve been at, we try to play and get people on the ball. That’s Robbie down to a tee and Kev, especially.

“It’s been music to my ears. We had about 10 sessions with Robbie and Kev and they were amazing.

“It’s promising signs. We’ve needed that identity and I feel like we’re getting that under Robbie.”
