BRIDPORT Reserves picked up four points in two games in a welcome return to form in the Jewson Dorset Premier League.

Adam Herring’s men have been struggling in the lower reaches of the league this season and were faced with a bottom-of-the-table clash against basement boys Shaftesbury Town Reserves.

Bridport duly came up with the goods with a 4-0 victory, sparked by Brad Rowe’s smashing effort into the net from Dan Baggs’ header across goal.

Rowe then drew a clumsy foul in the box but Dom McAllister saw his penalty saved, only for Toby Mann to pounce on the rebound for 2-0.

Shaftesbury had plenty of possession but lacked a cutting edge, Bridport extending their lead after the break as Mann sped down the wing and cut back for Rowe to net his second.

And Bridport finished off the Rockies when sub Kieran Coombs tucked home after pinball in the box.

The Bees then backed up the victory with a 2-2 draw at home to Hamworthy United Reserves.

Herring’s charges might count themselves unfortunate not to come away with all three points after McAllister and Fyn Morgan goals put the Bees 2-0 up.

However, the turning point came when McAllister saw his penalty saved and the Hammers grabbed a point with goals from Sam Foweraker and Joe Cornick.

Bridport Reserves are next in action at home to Merley on Saturday, April 29.
