MAGPIES: Goodship returns to Dorchester
6:10am Saturday 19th October 2013 in Sport
BRANDON Goodship has returned to the Magpies as a direct replacement for Aristide Bassele.
Dorchester Town assistant-manager Stuart Heath, whose side travel to Maidenhead United in Skrill South this afternoon (3pm), told Echosport: “Aristide has gone back to AFC Bournemouth and together they are now negotiating a possible loan with a couple of clubs higher in the Football League, which you can understand.
“In his place, we have managed to get Brandon Goodship back, who was with us at the start of the season.
“That first loan stay was a good introduction to the rigours of non-League football for Brandon, especially the physical side, and he now returns a bit stronger for it.
“He now knows what football is all about at this level and he will go straight into today’s squad.
“We continue to have a very good relationship with AFC Bournemouth that benefits both parties and they are really helping us out at the moment, which is much appreciated.”
Heath has also commented on the importance of the remaining senior players in the squad.
He added: “At the moment we are still over budget which means a few more players may have to go to get it back to where the club wants it to be.
“That will offer up more opportunities for the talented youngsters coming through but at the same time place even more importance on those senior players that remain.
“Luckily in Alan Walker-Harris, Mark Jermyn, Jamie Gleeson, Jake Smeeton and Nick Crittenden, we could not wish for five better role models.
“Not only are they all committed to Dorchester and still want to play for the club, but they are also more than happy to help the youngsters along.
“That is going to be crucial and hopefully none of them will go because the young lads are really going to need that experience around them.”
*Shaun Hearn officially stood down as co-chairman of Dorchester Town yesterday but remains joint majority shareholder alongside the Community Trust.
