Tom Knowles was on the scoresheet twice as Yeovil Town played out a 3-3 draw against League Two side Newport County in a friendly on Tuesday afternoon.
The Glovers fielded two unnamed trialists in the match at the South Wales club’s training ground at Dragon Park which appeared to line up in the centre of defence and in attack, two positions where the squad is lacking in options.
Newport went ahead after seven minutes before left-back Jordan Barnett pulled the visitors level after 22 minutes having broken in to the box and fired in to the bottom corner.
Knowles put Yeovil ahead ten minutes from half-time and added his second of the match two minutes before the break to send Darren Sarll’s side in ahead at the interval.
Newport pulled a goal back soon after the restart before both sides made a number of changes with loanee Lewis Simper, who has not featured since pre-season having suffered from COVID-19, one of those coming off the bench.
Striker Adi Yussuf also appeared in one of the pictures posted on the club’s Twitter channel along with new signing midfielder, Mitchell Rose.
