Double signing as Rowthorn and Wells join The Magpies

Dorchester Town Football Club are pleased to announce the double signing of Ben Rowthorn and Ashley Wells.

Having progressed through Southampton’s ranks from youth level to their U18 and U23 sides, Ben – who is a defensive midfielder but can also operate at right-back or centre-back – spent a spell on-loan with Truro City last season, and has been training with The Magpies squad recently.

Ashley joins The Magpies on a dual-registration deal from Weymouth having spent the past seven years over the Ridgeway, and the versatile defender – who can operate anywhere across the back line – has also previously featured for Portland United.

Both new signings are set to be involved in our Southern League Challenge Cup tie away at Wimborne Town this evening.

Welcome Ben and Ashley!
