DORCHESTER Town have added versatile defender Callum Buckley and veteran goalkeeper Alan Walker-Harris to their squad.

Buckley, 25, joins on a one-month loan deal from division counterparts Hayes & Yeading United on the eve of the new Southern League Premier South season.

Walker-Harris, who has made more than 160 appearances for Dorchester, has re-signed forms with the Magpies having featured throughout pre-season.

Most recently, the keeper had been player-goalkeeping coach at Gosport Borough.

Buckley last spent time at the Avenue Stadium in 2014, where he impressed enough to have an initial loan spell extended.

Formerly with AFC Bournemouth, Aldershot and Eastbourne, Buckley can operate at left-back or centre-half.

However, he made his name as a key cog in the Mark Molesley era at Weymouth, helping the club achieve promotion to the National League South as Southern League champions.

Injuries limited his game time at the Bob Lucas Stadium towards the end of his two-year spell and he eventually left in September 2019.
