DORCHESTER Town have announced the return of striker Olaf Koszela and the exit of defender Sam Davidson.

Koszela was a hit with Dorchester fans last season, previous boss Robbie Herrera convincing his former club Torquay to loan the bustling forward for a month.

Koszela joins for a second spell until the end of this season, having promptly scored three times in his initial stay at the Avenue Stadium.

The Gulls' striker has been on loan at Tiverton this season, scoring nine goals before November including a hat-trick against Beaconsfield.

Centre-back Davidson was also brought in last season during the second lockdown by Herrera.

He remained part of new boss Glenn Howes’ plans when the former manager took over in October.

The former Wimborne man has battled with an ankle injury and illness this season and has been restricted to 13 appearances in all competitions.

His exit follows the permanent signing of skipper Callum Buckley and the form of Thiago Caze da Silva, the Brazilian having scored twice in 16 games since joining from Poole.

Along with Buckley and da Silva, Dorchester have Ash Wells and Charlie Madden as centre-half options, plus under-23 star Connor Callow.

Dorchester host Taunton in league action tomorrow (3pm).
