Man-of-the-match Sam Jackson believes the “banter will stop” with his Dorchester Town teammates after the left-back notched his maiden goal for the club in the terrific 6-0 win over Tiverton Town, the Dorset Echo report.
With Dorchester 4-0 up and guaranteed to beat the drop, Jackson added the Magpies’ fifth with a header at the back post as 10-man Tiverton wilted at a warm Clayson Stadium.
Since joining the county town club on dual terms from Bashley in November, Jackson has impressed but failed to get the goal his performances deserved until he netted against Tivvy.
Commenting on his header, he told Echosport: “It was full-back to full-back. Where I’ve had chances before, I thought the keeper’s not getting (Kyle Egan’s cross).
“It was whipped so hard I thought ‘if I get anything on it, head it down, it should go in’ and luckily it did.
“I’ve had other chances this season where I’ve slightly missed but I’m glad to get on the scoresheet. The banter will stop from the lads, saying I need a goal, so that’s good.”
