MAGPIES: Reserve game to take on added importance, says Stuart Heath
DORCHESTER Town’s reserve-team game at New Milton tonight (7.45pm) has taken on extra significance, according to Stuart Heath.
Club captain Mark Jermyn, Jamie Gleeson, Alan Walker-Harris and Harry Bell are all set to get game time under their belts after the Magpies’ were without a Skrill South fixture at the weekend.
And while they work on their match fitness ahead of the trip to Maidenhead United on Saturday, a handful of other players are going to get the chance to stake a claim for a first-team squad place.
Dual-registered Poole Borough striker Conor Jevon, Dan Munday and Jake Rowley, who have impressed in training, could force their way into Phil Simkin’s plans for the rest of the season.
“The game will give us a good opportunity to look at some lads that could be coming into the club in the next few weeks,” said first-team assistant boss Heath.
“We don’t want to upset the continuity of the reserves but we’ll give some of the first team a run out and a couple of promising youngsters the chance to impress.
“With the size of the squad we’ve got at the moment players can force their way into the first-team plans.”
Midfielder Rowley was recommended to the Magpies by Ashley Vickers and has been playing for Bournemouth Poppies up to now.
“Ashley knows him from his time at Blackfield & Langley and Jake has just moved back to Dorset from London,” added Heath.
“He has looked good in training but hasn’t played much at all this season.”
