DORCHESTER Town first-team coach Brian Churchill admitted “everyone’s delighted” after the Magpies secured a comfortable 3-1 win over Harrow Borough.

Glenn Howes’ men claimed a hat-trick of victories at the Avenue Stadium after Pitching In Southern League Premier South wins over Kings Langley and Wimborne.

It was the first time Dorchester have achieved the feat since late 2017 into 2018 when the Magpies collected four straight home league triumphs.

Three points elevated Dorchester to 17th after what was arguably their finest home win of the campaign to date.

Churchill told the Magpies’ media team: “It’s nice to get back-to-back home wins. We talked about getting three points to set us up for Gosport.

“Everyone’s delighted. From training on Thursday, everything that was set up came out on the pitch, which was great.”

Oakley Hanger gave Dorchester the lead in the second minute before Billy Stedman scored a goal either side of Thiago Caze da Silva putting through his own net.

Churchill said: “It was the perfect start. Two minutes gone and Oakley’s burst into their box and finished. It just gives us a platform to build on.

“At half-time, out of possession I thought we could’ve done better and in possession.

“But to go in 2-0 (up) at half-time – fantastic.”

Churchill added: “Afterwards we’re in the changing room and they’re not getting too far ahead of themselves.

“When we lost possession, everyone fought for that ball. It was first, second, third player coming in to win that ball back, which is what Glenn instilled into them on Thursday.

“When they scored to make it 2-1, it felt different. It didn’t feel like we were going to capitulate as we have done in the past.

“It galvanised us to push on and get that third.”

Churchill revealed Tiago Sa is likely to recover soon from a collision with teammate Tom Soares – a challenge that forced his substitution for returning club skipper Ash Wells.

Striker Kieran Roberts is also nursing a knee injury having pulled up in training on Thursday.
