Welcome back Wes Fogden

July 7, 2024

Dorchester Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Wes Fogden.

Wes returns to The Magpies after 15 years away, having featured for the club over 40 times between 2007 to 2009 initially on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion before making the move permanently.

The midfielder went on to play in League One and League Two with AFC Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Yeovil over a number of seasons, as well as making over 250 appearances throughout non-league for Havant & Waterlooville which included winning back-to-back league titles on their way to the National League, winning play-off promotion from the National League South with Dorking Wanderers, and now links up with Magpies boss Tom Killick again having featured for Poole Town over the past couple of seasons.

Speaking on his return to The Avenue, Fogden said: “I'm happy to be back - this was my first club for senior appearances on loan from Brighton and I've kind of done the full circle now, so 15 years on I'm looking forward to getting started again.

“I really enjoyed my time under the gaffer at Poole and that's a big reason why I came back, and obviously all of the lads that moved over as well, that has played a big part too.”

On his memories from his previous time at the club, Wes added: “I've definitely got really good memories. The club gave me my first chance in men’s football when I was a young lad.

"The fans were always great, staff were brilliant as well, and I've kept in contact over all of these years with some of the people at the club like Kate and Del (Taylor) and Annie (Greenslade) who come to mind.”

Welcome back Wes!
