STRIKER Stewart Yetton is enjoying forming a strike partnership up front alongside fellow hitman Ben Thomson.
Thomson has impressed since being snapped up by Weymouth chief Jason Matthews from Frome in August and has settled in operating with the Terras’ skipper as a front two in recent weeks.
Yetton, the figurehead of the strike-force at the Bob Lucas Stadium since his arrival from Truro City in 2013, believes there is much more to come from his fellow frontman as he develops in a Weymouth shirt.
“Thommo and I have a good understanding and we get on really well off the pitch as well. I am really enjoying it,” he told Echosport when asked about the duo’s partnership.
“He has settled in really well in the changing room and is a good lad.
“He has the potential to get better as he grows into training with the lads and plays with the team for a bit of time.
“I think he will grow into a better player as he progresses over the next season or two.”
Former Plymouth Argyle man Yetton, now with two league goals in his last three games, also commented on his recent goal drought, which was ended when he found the net against King’s Lynn Town last month.
Quizzed about his spell without finding the net, he said: “I wasn’t necessarily too concerned about it. I just want to succeed as a team.
“If that means me scoring 10 less goals than last season and us going up then so be it.
“It was a little bit frustrating but not as frustrating for me as it was for other people. The more frustrating part for me is people just assume I’m only there to score.
“I’d like to think I’m fairly hard working and I have had six or seven assists as well.
“At some point I’ll have a spell where I score five or six in quick succession and I will be everyone’s favourite again! That’s what happens when you are a striker.
“I’m sure I’ll get back to that, there is no doubt in my mind.”
