Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Cambridge City saw Dorchester Town climb to seventh in the Southern Premier League table – only two places off the play-off births.
And speaking to the Dorset Echo following the match, manager Mark Jermyn urged Magpies fans to to turn out in force as the team continues to push for promotion back to the Conference South.
“I think a lot of each and every one of my players and there’s not really anyone who has got a question mark over them at this point in the season. There’s nobody that we would take out at the moment, which is brilliant for me, and they love being here. It’s a settled camp and I think recent results really do show that they are working hard and there’s a lot of togetherness.”
“The football club is turning a corner. They’ve gone through a lot of hard times and, not that the good times are back, but we’re on the crest of a wave and we’re climbing again now. We’re looking at stepping forward now and that’s massively positive for all of us, the supporters as well.
“The ones that haven’t been down for a while I just urge them to come back and watch us. If they don’t like us that’s fine, but come and watch us and make a decision on how we’re playing now. I’m not saying it was great football against Cambridge but the result and the character and mentality of the players was there to see. When I came to the club things like that were the reason why people liked Dorchester so much, and I really think we’re getting back to that stage. We’ve got a young group and I really hope we can keep them together. I really want people to come and enjoy watching them.”
