Bit of a stroll. 6-0 at half time, 9-0 at full time. In fairness to Galmpton, they took on the fixture at short notice so that might explain why they looked far less organised and disciplined than Totnes & Dartington did this time last year.
Disappointing pasty. Only £1.50, but it was of the microwaved Ginsters variety. Nice bottle of Bays Gold though.
Shepherd Murombedzi was the most impressive of the trialists - bagging a hat-trick from the right wing. Ashley Yeoman helped himself to five before being substituted. The first goal came from centre back Jide Maduako.
Most familiar trialist (other than our Ashley) was the giant Exodus Geohagon. I remember him forming a formidable combination with Branno at Kettering in our promotion season. He played in Cox's Mansfield team that won the Conference, but looked off the pace when he came to Plainmoor with Nuneaton last season. Great entertainment value with his ridiculously long throw that had Russell Musker urging his team not to give away any throw ins.
Missing a few names, but we lined up 4-4-2:
Jim Fenlon Jide Maduako Exodus Geohaghon Jamie Richards
Shepherd Murombedzi ? Hutchinson ? Nathan Fox
Ashley Yeoman Jack Nardiello
subs included James Alabi and Will Hancox.
I don’t really trust them not to build more houses and then not deliver the stadium and just sod off
A 5-2 win that was pretty competitive - we were 2-0 up at half-time but Dartmouth scored two early doors and were pushing us hard before a flurry of goals made it comfortable. Top man was Captain Yeoman with 4 goals, two of which were penalties, also missed another penalty that their keeper saved well. Sam Chaney also played but no other regulars were risked at this level. No Exodus. Only player that caught my eye was our right back who went on a couple of good runs, one of which set up Yeoman in the first half.
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
