DORCHESTER Town assistant-manager Trevor Senior has announced his intention to step away from the dugout after today's clash with Yate Town (3pm).

Senior, 57, is considered a Magpies' legend after spells as a player, caretaker-manager and now assistant boss.

The former Reading striker has been number two at Dorchester under Craig Laird, Steve Thompson and Callum Brooks.

Brooks and Senior will oversee their 25th game together this afternoon at the Dorchester helm, with the former Bridport boss aiming to "finish with a win".

In a statement on Twitter, Senior said: "It’s with a heavy heart I have decided today will be my last game as assistant manager at DTFC.

"It’s been an honour to have played and been in the dugout of my home town club. Thanks to all at (the) club and let’s finish with a win."

Brooks has this season appointed two new coaches to the Magpies' dugout, with Jody Rivers joining this summer and Steve Devlin officially announced yesterday.
