WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley believes the Terras “got a lot” out of his side’s 5-0 Dorset Senior Cup semi-final win over Verwood Town.

A Pat Suraci brace, plus Josh Wakefield, Brett Williams and Charles Medway strikes sealed Weymouth’s passage to the final, where they meet arch-rivals Dorchester on Tuesday, March 3.

Speaking to Echosport, Molesley said a final date with Dorchester would deliver “added spice”.

“It’s always nice to get into a final,” Molesley said. “We want to try and win every game and play as best as we can.

“I was pleased with (Tuesday) night, we got a lot out of it and built the fitness on some players, got some minutes into the lads that were on the bench on Saturday.

“We also had a look at a couple of younger players as well. It’s a clean sheet, we’ve won and we’re into a final. It’s got that added spice about it being against Dorchester.”

On youngsters Medway and Harry Burns, Molesley added: “Charles and Harry have been training with us and both equipped themselves well.

“Charles came on and I thought Harry (Burns) was outstanding throughout and in the previous game he played in the last round.

“He’s someone we’ve got high hopes for. That’s what this competition gives us a chance to do – have a look at these players in a competitive environment.”
