DORCHESTER Town midfielder Ollie Griggs is “hungry” to prove himself in a Magpies shirt, according to boss Leigh Robinson.

Griggs returned to the Clayson Stadium for a second spell this season, making his comeback in the 1-0 win over Wimborne Town.

Having left the club in February 2019, Griggs admitted he was “upset” by his departure.

However, new manager Robinson has brought the energetic midfielder back into his squad from Winchester City as the Magpies look for more “dynamic” performances.

Speaking to Echosport, the former Taunton and Truro boss hailed Griggs’ display against Dorchester’s Dorset rivals.

He said: “He did well. We were disappointed we couldn’t get him out there (against Yate), obviously the game was called off.

“He fits everything we’re trying to change here. He’s a young lad, fresh, can get around the pitch and has got good quality.

“We don’t think since we’ve come in we’ve got enough of those players compared to other teams in this league.

“We’ve made a massive point to the boys about how important covering the ground is and getting the distance they run during a game up, and being dynamic.

“One of the problems we have is we’ve got some decent quality but we’re not a dynamic enough team compared to a lot of the others.

“Ollie fits exactly what we want in terms of he’s the right age, he’s hungry and badly wanted to come back here and prove himself, and he covers the ground brilliantly.

“It’s a good start from him and hopefully more to come.”
