BRIDPORT Reserves’ manager Shaun Annetts has described the Bees’ Dorset Premier League battle with Sherborne Town Reserves on Saturday (3pm) as “massive”.

Annetts’ side hosts the rock-bottom Zebras at St Mary’s Field with just eight points separating the teams – Town enjoying two games in hand.

He said: “It’s a massive game for us. Hopefully we can carry on this little bit of momentum we’ve got.

“Hopefully the weather will be kind and we’ll get to play again.

“The players, after Saturday’s performance, would’ve liked to have played on Sunday!”

Annetts’ men come into the Sherborne clash with a stunning 5-4 victory over Holt behind them.

The Bees trailed 3-1 at the break but a Josh Hull hat-trick, and a second goal for Ryan Gall, overturned the deficit in superb style.

Speaking to the Bridport News, Annetts said: “The turnaround was remarkable.

“I’m pleased for the players because they haven’t won too many games this year.

“The second-half performance and spirit was great to see.

“But we weren’t perfect in any way – we gifted them three goals.”

Annetts also expressed his thanks to diligent Bridport officials who helped alleviate saturated areas of the St Mary’s Field surface.

He added: “I’m grateful for a few club members that got the game on. There was a lot of forking on Saturday morning and putting sand down.”
