DORCHESTER Town have announced midfielder Luke Winsper has signed dual-registration forms with Shaftesbury Town.

Winsper, who had been blighted by a foot problem in September, played for the Rockies in their 3-1 Sydenhams Wessex Premier Division victory against Bournemouth Poppies on Tuesday evening.

The combative midfield man has played just six times for parent club Dorchester this season, with a career total of 10 goals in 72 appearances.

Winsper is the latest midfielder to agree dual terms after Oli Lowes, who has six goals in seven games for Dorchester Sports.

Competition for midfield places at the Magpies is stiff, with Sam Lanahan and Dom Panesar-Dower having left in September.

Dorchester also possess Charlie Davis, Billy Lowes, Sean Wright, Plymouth loanee duo Cam Sangster and Tom Purrington plus youngster Josh Williams as central midfield options.
