Trialist C 20, Murphy 60, Maguire-Drew 77, 81, Nouble 87

DORCHESTER Town were outclassed 5-0 by a slick Yeovil Town in their pre-season friendly at the Avenue Stadium.

Yeovil led 1-0 at half-time thanks to a goal from their trialist striker but rang the changes for their big guns in the second half.

Ex-Southend striker Rhys Murphy scored a delightful second before a quick brace from Jordan Maguire-Drew and a fine fifth from Frank Nouble sealed Dorchester’s fate.

Dorchester did fashion the first half chance when Shaq Gwengwe dribbled past two Yeovil defenders and cut the ball back across the six-yard box, where no teammate was there to gamble.

Yeovil went desperately close to breaking the deadlock in the 15th minute, however, as former Weymouth loanee Will Dawes swept a close-range shot against the bar when he should have scored.

The Glovers would eventually take the lead in the 20th minute, Jordi Foot bustled off the ball by Benjani Jr and his pass inside enabled Yeovil’s trialist striker to slam past Lloyd Thomas for 1-0.

Thomas was worked heavily in the 25th minute, making a sharp double save to first keep out Benjani Jr’s daisy-cutter and then springing up to block the trialist forward.

Yeovil’s trialist winger fired a good opening over before Dorchester wasted their best chance of the half.

Yeovil keeper Lewis Williams advanced and lost possession to Koszela but the ex-Torquay man neglected to shoot, as did Gwengwe, before captain Jordan Ngalo’s chip sailed over.

Gwengwe later did well to steal possession and tee up Koszela, whose shot was wild and whizzed out of the ground.

Dorchester showed no changes at half-time but Yeovil resumed in the ascendancy as Jordan Young’s swivel and shot was well blocked.

At the other end, Aidan Skiverton, son of Yeovil legend Terry, made a good block to deny Koszela shortly before Yeovil made nine changes.

Dorchester elected for one, bringing on Lewis Waterfield for Harvey-Joe Bertrand, but it was a Yeovil substitute who was quickest to make the impact.

Murphy brought down a diagonal from fellow sub Maguire-Drew and turned Foot inside out before rifling home at the near post on the hour.

Dorchester replied in the 69th minute when Waterfield spotted sub keeper Will Buse off his line, only to drag his long-range lob well wide.

It took until the 72nd minute for Dorchester’s first shot on target as Ngalo was allowed to surge forward and aim a crisp low shot at Buse.

However, Yeovil’s quality told as Maguire-Drew powered a 25-yard bullet into the bottom-right corner before punishing slack defensive work to roll home an easy fourth.

Yeovil saved the best until last as Nouble exchanged passes with Murphy, slicing open the Magpies’ defence, before burying his finish through Thomas to complete the scoring.
