Welcome Gerard Benfield

August 10, 2021

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.”

Welcome Gez!
