SWINDON ADVERTISER - Anzite on target in Town win - By Gareth Moorhouse
FRENCH triallist Franklin Anzite scored on his debut to give Town reserves a 1-0 win over rivals Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Ground.
The 21-year-old central midfielder struck with a header midway through the second half to help the Robins' second string to a second consecutive victory in Football Combination Wales & West Division.
Anzite, who has spent the last three seasons with French club AC Ajjaccio was one of two triallists on display last night, the other being 20-year-old QPR defender Dominic Shimmin.
Both enjoyed solid first outings in a Swindon shirt with boss Paul Sturrock watching from the stands.
Reserve team boss Dave Byrne gave his first impressions on the two Town new-boys.,,
"Dominic is a strong, quick central defender but there are still areas he needs to work on.
"He is also a dead-ringer for Jerel Ifil. Some of the supporters were asking why Jerel was playing.
"Where we go from he
re will be up to the gaffer. He will have another look at them and make a decision..." Swindon Advertiser
