Cameron Sangster and Tom Purrington have joined Dorchester Town on loan from League Two side Plymouth Argyle until January 2020.
The highly-rated midfield duo – who can both operate in a number of positions – featured regularly for the Pilgrims first team during pre-season, and both played at The Clayson Stadium against The Magpies when they hosted a Plymouth Argyle XI in a friendly last year.
Speaking ahead of training last night, boss Callum Brooks said: “Most clubs that are at our level will have loan players in and around the squad – we haven’t done that yet as we wanted to have a settled group and implement how we want to play and how we want to work, knowing that we felt we could utilise the loan market at a time that would impact us greater, rather than when everyone turned up for pre-season training on 2nd July.”
“We’ve held back, but now we feel it is the right time to bring in two talented young lads to just give our competition for places and energy levels a boost, and to cover us for some injuries. I’d like to thank Kevin Nancekivell at Plymouth who has made it an easy process for us to get the boys in. We hope they can have an enjoyable experience with us, and we look forward to working with them.”
Subject to agreement from The FA, the duo will be available for selection in the BetVictor Southern League Premier South fixture at home to Hartley Wintney tomorrow afternoon.
