Playmaker Jordan Maguire-Drew has said he feels like he is “on a similar wavelength” with Yeovil Town strikers Rhys Murphy and Frank Nouble.

The 25-year-old scored twice in the 5-0 pre-season friendly win at Dorchester Town on Tuesday night having arrived along with his fellow forwards as one of a flurry of changes on the 56th minute.

Speaking to the club’s Instagram channel after the game, he said: “We are on a similar wavelength, so it has been pretty easy, it just feels natural which is always a good thing.

We still have a few matches left until the season starts, so hopefully we can build on that.

The Glovers’ pre-season campaign moves on to Southern League Premier South side AFC Totton at the weekend before League Two Newport County arrive at Huish Park next Tuesday night for the only home friendly of the campaign.

They then finish with a trip to Plymouth Parkway on July 29th before building up to the opening National League South fixture of the new season at Hemel Hempstead Town on August 5th.

Maguire-Drew, who signed permanently in January having been on loan in Somerset for a month prior to making the move permanent, said the squad was starting to gel as the big kick-off approaches.

He added: “Everyone is really close knit and gets on really well which is a big thing and that will take us a long way next season and when you add the quality we have got on top, that can take us even further.”

The ex-Grimsby Town man dismissed an injury he appeared to pick up having scored an impressive first goal – his side’s third of the game – after 78 minutes at The Avenue as “just a little niggle“.

He certainly did not show too many side effects from whatever it was scoring his second four minutes later.
