DORCHESTER Town have announced the capture of promising forward Jack Hoey on a one-month loan deal from rivals Weymouth.

Hoey impressed during pre-season for Weymouth, scoring at Portland and Wimborne, but has so far failed to cement a place in Terras' matchday squad.

After four losses in a row, Brooks has sought to sharpen up the Magpies' squad in recent weeks, with Cam Sangster and Tom Purrington arriving from Plymouth prior to Saturday's 3-2 loss to Hartley Wintney.

Highly-rated Hoey, who played at youth level with AFC Bournemouth, also featured for AFC Totton and New Milton Town – where he worked with Magpies' boss Callum Brooks – and has recently returned after a spell in the USA at Greenville FC and Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina.

Explaining his latest addition, Brooks said: “Jack is a player that I've known for a few years now and have got a history with - I also watched him a couple of times in pre-season, so I know quite a lot about Jack and I know he's got the right mentality to add to our group at the moment.

“He's got good attention to detail, a will to learn, to win and make an impact on the pitch.

“I'm aware that with how it's been we are looking for a boost and I’m trying to make improvements across the club all the time.

"Now a lot of the improvements we're looking to make are long-term, but when I found out he might be available I felt we could make an improvement for the next month.

“I felt the opportunity was right for us and for Jack, so he will bolster our group, give us more strength in depth and another attacking option.

"In a month's time we will be in a much better place as a whole club and a better position in the league."

Subject to agreement from the FA, the striker will be available for Dorchester's FA Cup first qualifying round tie at Evesham United on Sunday (3pm).
