New Yeovil Town striker Malachi Linton scored his first goal for his new club in a 4-0 win in behind-closed-doors friendly against Sherborne Town at Alvington on Friday.

The frontman, who joined last month following his release by Wycombe Wanderers, was joined on the scoresheet by youngster Ollie Haste and goals from a pair of trialists.

Linton’s goal came from a penalty after winning a spot kick in the first half before one of the unnamed trialists added a second before the break.

Frontman Ollie Hulbert, another recent arrival after his release by Bristol Rovers, had a couple of decent chances in the first half being denied by the Sherborne keeper.

In the second half, another trialist (we assume a different one although the report on the club’s website is not clear) and one from Haste completed the scoring.

Other than midfielder Matt Worthington, who features in a picture on the club website from the match, there are no further details about the team put out by manager Chris Hargreaves.

The match against last season’s Toolstation Western League Division One champions was a warm-up ahead of the Glovers’ first pre-season fixture (in front of fans) at Taunton Town on Tuesday night.
