Dorchester Town have signed Tom Bath for the 2019/20 season.
The striker joins the club from Tiverton Town, having been an important part of The Yellows side for the past three campaigns with 45 goals in 143 appearances, to become Dorchester’s seventh new arrival of summer.
After joining, Bath said: “Obviously I’ve had some great seasons at Tiverton and met some good people there, but I think it was the right time to move to a great club like this. Everything is in place to get the club back to where it should be.”
“I’m really looking forward to it – to meeting the boys, for the season to start and hopefully to score some goals for this great club.”
Manager Callum Brooks said: “He’s a player that we’ve had our eye on for a while. As much as I feel recruitment has been fantastic so far this close season, we’re all aware that to finalise the cherry on top we need that marque front man who will lead our line, and we’ve identified Tom as the perfect fit for that.”
“Obviously I’ve been doing extensive research and from my chats with Tom it was evident that we might be the right club for him at the right time, and he’s agreed to come in – so for me, it’s a really positive signing.”
“It’s one that I hope will make our supporters happy – no one is more aware than me of the need to get in a front man that belongs to Dorchester Town and this lad ticks all of the boxes for what we’re looking for.”
