DORCHESTER Town have completed the signing of Conor Jevon from Weymouth Reserves on a non-contract deal.

Jevon, who has scored five goals in seven appearances for the Terras’ second string this season, fills the void in the striker department for the Magpies as they seek to put an end to their goalless run of four games.

Speaking to Echosport about the deal, interim manager Trevor Senior admitted that Jevon wanted to play at a “higher level”.

“I watched him against Christchurch in the early part of the season.

“I could see that he knows how to play the position and for the last couple of seasons he’s been in the running for a first-team place. When he’s come in he’s seemed to have done quite well.

“He wants to play a higher level and I know he wanted to play for Weymouth but picked up a knee injury during the summer.

“Mark Molesley has been very helpful in the situation and I can’t knock him at all.”

Senior also confirmed that Jevon is expected to start against Frome Town tonight (7.45pm) when Dorchester resume their Evo-Stik Southern League Premier campaign.

Meanwhile, Weymouth assistant-manager Paul Maitland told Echosport that Jevon “goes with our blessing”.

He said: “He goes with our blessing because he’s capable, and the challenge is really not for Conor to prove to everybody that he’s up to it.

“It’s to prove that he’s able to do it on a regular basis and has enough belief. It’s whether he’s able to commit to it.

“We wish him the best of luck. Unfortunately he’s just fallen down the pecking order. Dorchester have got themselves a very good player. He’ll do very well for them.”
