CALLUM Brooks thanked his loan players for their efforts after Dorchester played their final game of the season, a 3-1 loss to Hartley Wintney in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South.

Ben Seymour had put the Magpies ahead in the match before the Row fought back and Brooks praised the Exeter striker.

Brooks said: “He (Seymour) has been good since I have been here, he has worked really hard and obviously it was his last game for the club (against Hartley Wintney) so he will return to his parent club.

“So from my point of view with Harry Kite and Kingsley (Latham) as well, I thank the loan players for their efforts, as I do the whole group.

“The group has been very, very good since I have been here so I do owe them some thanks for that and I have obviously told them that.”

Brooks also spoke about the inclusion of Michael Edgar in the squad, who has been playing for Portland during the season, saying: “Obviously with Portland not having a game (on the weekend of Dorchester’s last game) he has been in and around our training all season and especially the last 10 games since I have been here.

“We have one eye on the future and we like to keep good people around.

“So it was an opportunity for Michael to come and see a little bit about the level and how we are trying to do things.”
