DELIGHTED: Verwood Town boss Carl Poore

First published in Sport by

DAN Munday and Jordan Fisk bagged doubles as plucky Verwood emerged victorious from a seven-goal thriller at Bemerton Heath Harlequins.

Poole Town youngster Munday twice handed Potters the lead during an end-to-end first half but the hosts restored parity before the interval.

The game looked to be drifting away from Carl Poore’s men when Bemerton went in front but Fisk’s second-half double flipped the game on its head once more.

Verwood were forced to withstand sustained spells of pressure during the final 15 minutes but stood firm, much to the delight of their manager.

Poore told the Daily Echo: “I was absolutely delighted with how we approached the game, the lads showed a great deal of self belief.

“They realised they would have to be strong and physical to get anything because we were up against a team of very experienced players.

“To be fair to Bemerton, they did create a number of chances but so did we. They threw a lot at us towards the end of the game but we coped very well.

“One of the big frustrations of our season so far has been not taking enough of our chances, so we were delighted to put that right and seeing out the result was the icing on the cake.”

Potters: Lynch, Evans, Buck, Dent, Anderton, Dyer, Foster (Goddard, 85), Gajic, Munday, Fisk (Murray, 89), Turner (Rutten, 78). Unused subs: Molyneaux, Collins (g/k).
