Wakefield signs on loan

Dorchester Town Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of Josh Wakefield on a one-month loan.

The 19-year old highly rated midfielder joins the club from AFC Bournemouth and is available for this weekend’s FA Cup match against Shortwood United.

The cultured midfielder made his Cherries debut on 30 April last year, coming on as a substitute in the league match against Scunthorpe United, and manager Phil Simkin was naturally delighted with the loan signing: “Josh is a very tidy player with a good knowledge of the game,” added Simkin. “He doesn’t give the ball away easily and is exactly what we need.

“We’re missing Glees but Josh will fit in nicely and again I have to thank Steve Purches and Eddie Howe at Bournemouth.”
