DORCHESTER Town have extended the loans of key duo Harry Kite and Ben Seymour from Exeter City until the end of the season.

Teenage Grecians Kite and Seymour have both impressed during their stay with the Magpies and manager Steve Thompson has moved quickly to secure the pair’s services until the club’s final game at Hartley Wintney on April 27.

The deals follow the successful extension of goalkeeper Kingsley Latham’s loan from Southampton, also until the season’s end.

Seymour, in particular, has been a revelation at the Clayson Stadium since joining the Magpies in October.

The striker scored on his debut during the 1-1 FA Trophy first qualifying round draw at Yate Town and netted again in the replay.

Seymour has gone on to score a stunning 12 goals in 15 games for the Magpies with his only blemish being a red card for raising a hand to Ashley Wells’ face against Weymouth in the Dorset Senior Cup quarter-final, Dorchester losing 3-1 on penalties after a 2-2 draw.

Kite, meanwhile, has been an influential cog in Dorchester’s midfield by providing the energy needed to carry out Thompson’s want of a high press.

Kite’s range of passing has also had Magpies’ fans purring and the midfielder has appeared 27 times this season, scoring four goals.

However, an ankle injury picked up against Weymouth on Boxing Day has sidelined Kite, who is racing to be fit for the FA Trophy second round clash at National League side Barnet tomorrow (3pm).
