BOSS Tom Killick is still calling for more from his charges – even after they cruised past Swindon Supermarine 5-0 in the FA Cup first qualifying round.

Dolphins eventually put five past their Southern League Premier South rivals, but only led 1-0 at the break thanks to a sublime Dan Bartlett strike.

In-form Tony Lee added a second-half brace, as did Luke Burbidge as Poole Town cruised through.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, Killick said: “I wasn’t expecting that. I’m aware how strong Swindon are. The way the game started off I thought they were the better side.

“They looked quite bright, particularly going forward. We didn’t see it panning out (the way it did) – it wasn’t vintage by any means.

“I talked about it a little while ago, about winning games without perhaps being at our best, I still think there is a lot more to come, but we’re still getting some results.”

Shortly into the second half Poole were gifted the chance to double their lead from the spot. Lee was barged over by Supermarine captain Mat Liddiard, with the striker dusting himself off to convert the penalty for his seventh of the campaign.

From then on Dolphins dominated, laying siege to the Supermarine penalty area until they produced three further goals via a Burbidge brace and Lee’s second.

“I think we defended doggedly, took our chances when they came along,” continued Killick.

“It got to the point where they threw in the towel a bit, and we exploited that. You have to break their spirit first, and I thought we did that.”

Now into his 18th season at the helm of Poole Town, Killick has been known to hold his side to high standards.

Despite winning their last three games without conceding, Killick still believes there is much more to come from his squad.

“These players have been with me a long time, so you know what their capabilities are, you see it week in and week out, and in training, and I’ve seen it in previous seasons," said the long-serving boss.

“I feel I’ve got quite a good gauge on what they can produce, and I still feel they can do a bit more.

“I do say that you have to be hard to beat first, be dogged, and work very hard, and perhaps, we sort of sight of those qualities a little bit in a couple of our previous games.”

“In our last three games I feel as if it’s been back with an abundance, and it has paid dividends.

“I’m absolutely delighted with the sequence of results – three wins in a row and advancing in the FA Cup – but I know what the players are capable of, so we’re still keep pushing forward to try and maximise what we produce.”

Thanks to their winning performance, Dolphins pocketed £2,250 in prize money, and a place in Monday’s draw for the second qualifying round.
