Friday is D-Day for Magpies' striker Rico



First published in Club news by

RICO Wilson’s future at Dorchester Town should be resolved at the end of the week.

Last month the Magpies’ top scorer pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm and he is due to appear at Bournemouth Crown Court on Friday for sentencing.

The striker was sacked by the club this time last year after being jailed for a string of offences, including possession of a class B drug, but was later given a second chance by the county town outfit.

Boss Alan Knight insists Wilson’s fate will be decided, one way or another, once the outcome of Friday’s events is clear.

He said: “Rico has got his hearing coming up and although he has pleaded guilty there are mitigating circumstances, so nothing is clear cut.

“Therefore we will await the judge’s decision and go from there. It wouldn’t be fair to pre-judge what action the judge takes, so we will wait to see what happens before making a decision.”

Meanwhile, having been severely depleted at the weekend, the Magpies hope to welcome back a host of key names for this Saturday’s trip to Boreham Wood, including the likes of Nick Crittenden, Alan Walker-Harris and Jamie Gleeson.

Knight is also keeping his fingers crossed that Aldershot loanee Max Worsfold will overcome a recent ankle injury, which has prevented the midfielder making his competitive debut for the county town side.

The Portsmouth legend added: “The majority of the lads should be back and available on Saturday. We are also hoping there is a chance Max may be up for selection, which would be a bonus.”
