DORCHESTER Town have secured the services of Plymouth Argyle loanee Callum Rose until the end of the season. 

Centre-back Rose, 19, has impressed during a three-month spell at the Avenue, which has seen him appear 19 times in all competitions, scoring one goal. 

Rose's deal concludes after the final game of the season at Biggleswade Town on Saturday, April 28.

Last November, Rose came off the bench to score against the Waders and has since cemented his place at the heart of Dorchester's defence. 

Boss Steve Thompson had been concerned that the Pilgrims would recall Rose after his excellent form and injuries to two established centre-backs. 

But the Devon side have allowed the teenager to play out the rest of the season with the Magpies, and could potentially appear a further 14 times. 

Rose's performances have helped Dorchester keep four clean sheets during his current stay at the Magpies.
