The Bournemouth Echo report that Taffy Richardson was pleased to see Poole Town get their rewards after a sickening week of training – literally.

Richardson, boss Tom Killick’s right-hand man at Black Gold Stadium, revealed how several players had vomited out of sheer effort. Dolphins then travelled to Kings Langley on Saturday hoping to secure their first Southern League South win since mid-October.

And Killick’s men prevailed 3-0 to ensure they ended the day in seventh place and three points off a play-off spot, with two games in hand on fifth-place Tiverton.

Reflecting on the victory, Richardson admitted adaptation had been element of his team’s success in Hertfordshire.

And he added that midweek graft had played its part as well, even if it might not have felt like that at the time.

He told the Daily Echo: “The win was very pleasing, mainly because we have a way of playing and we realised very quickly that we couldn’t play that way.

“We had to sit in a bit more and the players aren’t used to doing that but they took it on board and were quality and it resulted in a convincing 3-0 win.”
