DORCHESTER Town winger Leighton Thomas has left the Magpies for Bristol side Cribbs.

Thomas will step down one level to join Cribbs, third in the Southern League Division One South.

The Cayman Islands international last started in the 4-2 loss to Hungerford and was an unused substitute in the 2-0 win at Harrow.

Subsequently, he lost his place in the 16 for the next two matches.

Killick has preferred to thrust new signing Luke Roberts into the squad at the expense of the former Yate, Bridport and Paulton star.

Speaking to Echosport, Killick said: “It’s a difficult scenario with Leighton because he’s a really committed player, he always gives his all.

“Not only have I not been able to get him in the starting XI, I’ve been quite fortunate in not losing people through injury or suspension.

“So, he’s not been in the squad. I’ve had to leave a couple of people out for the last couple of squads. He’s just been unfortunate from that point of view.”

Dorchester visit Didcot Town in league action this afternoon (3pm).
