Dorchester Town Football will be owned by the community.

It's been announced an agreement has now been reached and signed between the Community Trust, Dorchester FC and Dorchester Youth FC.

Shaun Hearn will transfer 50% of his majority shareholding to the Trust on the 17th May.

The joint statement reads:

" The agreement represents the conclusion of a long and complex process which has been achieved through the goodwill, hard work and co-operation of all parties.

Dorchester Town FC, Dorchester Town Youth FC and the Community Trust would like to thank the Supporters and Trust Members and for their support and patience during the process.

The hard work starts now but we strongly believe that working together will achieve a club at the heart of the Community delivering benefits for all.

We are working hard to put the club where it belongs and that is at the heart of the Community and the more people that gets involved the better.
