DORCHESTER Town striker Jordan Rogers has left the Magpies.

Rogers, who joined Dorchester shortly before lockdown in March, made just two appearances for the club, failing to score.

Rogers cited "family commitments and travelling" as reasons for his departure.

He tweeted: "Just wanted to thank @DorchTownFC for my time at the club!

"It was very short with everything that has happened but due to work and family commitments the travelling is just too much!

"Wish you all the best for the season!"

Having his say on Rogers' exit, boss Leigh Robinson said: " Unfortunately, Jordan hasn’t been able to stay injury free and hasn’t made an appearance in any of our pre-season games.

"With this in mind, the length of time it would take for him to get fit and into the squad, and his own work commitments it clearly makes sense for us all to move on and we wish him all the best.”

Dorchester have strikers Tom Bath, Emile Ngoy and loan signing Rubin Wilson at their disposal ahead of Tuesday's final pre-season friendly against Yeovil at the Avenue Stadium (7pm).
