DORCHESTER Town have announced a new partnership with Sky Bet League Two side Exeter City.

As part of the link-up, Dorchester will host Exeter's 'Dorset Advanced Development Centre' sessions from Tuesday, September 7.

Sessions will run from 4.30pm to 6pm during the academic year.

"As with all of our Advanced Development Centres we will be looking to host players from under-seven to under-14 on tier three of the ECFC Player Progression Pathway," an Exeter statement said.

"ECFC Regional Advanced Development Centres offer extra training for players in the local area, providing a safe and fun learning environment whilst covering the ECFC Core Skills and the ECFC Cycle of Play.

"Furthermore, the ECFC Advanced Development Centre Programme is a great opportunity for players to be identified as potential ECFC Academy players.

"We will be holding a Talent ID event for new players at the centre in September, more details on this and how to sign up will be released in the coming weeks."

The arrangement is the latest deal between the two clubs, with the likes of Archie Collins, Ben Seymour and Harry Kite all loaned to the Magpies from Exeter in recent seasons.
