JASON Matthews was happy to sign off his league tenure with the Terras on a high after his side scrapped their way to a 2-1 victory at St Ives Town.

In his final league outing as Terras’ boss, two goals from Stephane Zubar saw Matthews’ men come from behind to beat the Saints and extend their unbeaten run to 10 games.

Speaking after the victory, Matthews told Echosport: “Credit to the boys, we had a game plan and left out more of our flair players, if you like.

“We probably played a horrible team on a horrible pitch. I thought we did well to grind out the result and, in the last 20 minutes, we thoroughly deserved the win.

“It was not a game for the purist. There are lovely people at St Ives but it was a horrible pitch, it’s a pitch that doesn’t do the Southern League justice. If you wanted to go and watch a game of total football St Ives probably won’t be the place, but we got the result.”

He added: “Everyone had a job to do and they did it. The players gave me everything and that’s all I can ask for on the day.

“To actually finish my league season with a win was nice and that puts us 10 unbeaten. It would be nice for me now to go out on Tuesday (the Dorset Senior Cup final) with a win.

“For me, it’s a new chapter coming but first and foremost I want to win that cup on Tuesday.”
