WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley praised the “instinctive” finishing of two-goal defender Calvin Brooks as the Terras recorded a spectacular 3-2 comeback win at Hampton & Richmond.

Trailing 2-0 at the break amid poor conditions hurled down by Storm Dennis, Brooks ensured it was a case of ‘Storm Calvin’ as the right-back claimed two deadly second-half finishes.

Brooks’ brace handed him his first goals of a season in which he has also contributed two assists.

Last season, Brooks enjoyed a stunning return of 11 goals from right-back in 43 games.

Speaking to Echosport, Molesley revealed his pleasure at seeing Brooks back at full cry after a recent battle with an ankle injury.

He said: “It was good quality delivery into the box and good movement from Calvin being in the right place at the right time.

“One was a header and one was one where it got flashed back across goal and he managed to divert it in.

“He’s quite instinctive in and around goal, he’s not shy to score a few goals. We’ve had goals chipped in from a lot of places this year, which is good for us.

“Calvin, at right-back, has got two goals but I’m more delighted to have him back out on the pitch.

“He was missing for quite a long spell, for a couple of months, so we’re delighted to get him back and we’ve got seven others hopefully to join in as well.”

Weymouth are next in action on Saturday at home against Billericay Town (3pm).
