Players Removed from Transfer List at Dorchester


8:08am 2nd December 2013

Dorchester Town has taken all its players off the transfer list after gaining a little financial stability.

The club has met its sustainable budget and Chairman Neal Butterworth say they can now focus on football again.

Magpie's fans are being encouraged to get behind the team and help pull them off the bottom of the Conference South table.

Butterworth said:

"The squad has now been taken off the transfer list and with the stability that brings and with such a long way to go in the season, it is far from over. It is going to be a tough season and a battle at times, but everyone here is up for the fight. We know that we can turn it around.

"Everyone at the football club believes that we belong in the Conference South and we are all working hard to keep it that way - none more so than Phil. I want to pay special credit to Phil as the last couple of months have been horribly tricky, but he has handled it all astutely and professionally.

"No one is working harder than Phil to change our fortunes. He's working almost every single evening, scouting, speaking with other clubs. He's constantly on the phone, trying to improve the squad, and the fact that he has been able to extend the deals of the two Bournemouth lads against competition from plenty of other clubs, is testament to his hard work."

"It's now a case of every extra penny earned will go in to the fight, so everything the fans can do, be it bringing a friend along, buying a scarf, a shirt, or even a pint, it will all help."
