KIERAN Roberts is loving life at Dorchester Town as the ambitious striker admitted: “Winning is everything to me”.

Roberts joined the Magpies from AFC Portchester in October having netted 15 goals in 15 games at the Wessex League Premier Division side.

Dorchester’s interim boss Brian Churchill then came calling and the forward has been a regular fixture under new manager Glenn Howes and assistant James Wood.

He scored his first goal for the Magpies in the 2-0 win over Kings Langley, playing nine times in total since moving from the Tangerines.

Speaking to Echosport, Roberts spoke of his satisfaction at playing Southern League football again having had spells with Weymouth and Wimborne.

He said: “It’s brilliant, I’ve really enjoyed coming in. The new gaffer came in a week after me so it wasn’t too much of a change as I was new as well.

“I’ve fitted in, the lads have made me feel welcome. The whole atmosphere around the place is really fitting.

“I dropped down a couple (of leagues) to focus on work and my business. That went well but I left thinking I could play a bit higher up where I belong.

“Churchy recruited me and things changed within a game. I’ve worked with Glenn before and their style suits me.”

On his first goal, he said: “It was brilliant, I love playing and working hard for the team but winning is everything to me.

“The goal came out of nowhere. I created it myself which adds a bit of oomph to that feeling. The fans behind the goal and the pictures – it was a good feeling and good to get the win.”
