New one-year contract extension for Tom Blair

Dorchester Town Football Club are delighted to confirm that Tom Blair’s contract with The Magpies has been extended for the 2020/21 season.

The 21-year-old Dorchester born winger extends his stay with his hometown club for a fifth season, having now made nearly 150 appearances for The Magpies since his debut in 2016.

Boss Leigh Robinson said: “Basically, I’m super excited to have Blairo with us for next season. He’s such a talent, match winner and when he’s in the team you just have that belief that things will happen which runs through the team.”

“He had disciplinary problems last year admittedly but I’m 100% certain he’s learned from this as I know he hated missing games last year.”

“I know he’ll badly want to make a mark on this division this season and knowing his talent like I do, I fully expect him to do so.”

Speaking on his new one-year contract, Blair said: “I’m really pleased to have had my contract extended by the club. Obviously, last year wasn’t the best of years for myself or for the club, however with the way I finished the season, I believe I proved myself and showed what I am capable of.”

“This season is massive for myself, and it’s now time to make a mark on this league and to start winning games for this great club. I am blown away with the support and belief that Leigh and the management staff have in me, and I fully back their vision and rebuild plan.”

“It’s no secret this club hasn’t been where is should be for the last five years but now with the foundations we now have in place, I think we could have reached a turning point and we can move up through the league and make winning a habit.”

“I hope everyone is staying safe and I cannot wait to get back out on that pitch! UTM.”
