Dorchester Town Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Gerard Benfield on loan until January 2022.
Benfield arrives at The Avenue from Weymouth - having also featured for Salisbury and Wimborne Town over previous seasons - and has been training with The Magpies squad over the past week.
Speaking on his newest addition, boss Robbie Herrera said: “We’re delighted to have him on board.”
“He's a good physical presence - at this level you need your keeper to be of a certain stature, so he gives us that. His shot stopping is very good, and his kicking is great.”
“He's going to come and get some much-needed game time and competitive football, which we can give him for his development.”
“We're happy to have him - our back line I think will be confident that they've got him behind them, and we're looking forward to seeing him out there in a Dorchester shirt.”
