THE chances of Dorchester Town retaining their Conference South status at the end of this season appear to be hanging by a thread following last night’s demoralising 3-0 defeat to Maidenhead United.

They are not mathematically down just yet, but their faint hopes of staying up took another hammer blow at the Avenue after last Saturday’s injury-time loss away to Basingstoke.

“We should have been in front in the first half, we should have scored,” said Dorchester boss Phil Simkin after the game. “That would have totally changed everything, as goals do, but we can’t score.

“It’s psychological. When you’ve been battered week in and week out, like we have, and you play well and watch someone miss an open goal, that is bad enough, but then you concede and you think you’re never going to get it back.

“As soon as we conceded a goal we had to throw people forward.”

The visitors took the lead from the spot 13 minutes into the second half and then went on to score two more goals in quick succession.

“We’ve been making individual mistakes since August 14 and we’re still making them, and that’s the reason we’re bottom of the league,” added Simkin.

THE ONLY MISTAKES BEING MADE ARE FROM THE OUT OF DEPTH TRUST AND YOU SIMKIN.
Yesterday was a sad day for me being a Dorch fan and you have the bare cheek to blame the lads publicly and their mistakes , they have given their heart and soul to this club and you put the whole blame on them
The trust should advertise the avenue as a circus from now on , full of clowns!! Your out of your depth , you can't run a club on a quiz, a car hunt and a duck race down the river . You lot begged Mr Hearn for control of the club and you have failed.
I feel for the players , plus I thank you for giving your all week in week out.
TIME FOR CHANGE PLEASE!!!!
