HARRY McGrath has left Dorchester Town, the Magpies have confirmed.

It comes after Bashley, who were promoted to the Southern League Division One South for 2022/23, announced McGrath as their latest signing.

Combative forward McGrath re-joins his former club and links up with Billy Lowes, who also left Dorchester in the close season having played 186 games for the Magpies.

McGrath, who joined Dorchester from Lymington Town midway through the 2021/22 campaign, made ten appearances for Glenn Howes' side.

He was also responsible for a vital winner in the 2-1 victory at Kings Langley, which gave Dorchester three points against a side battling against them in the race to avoid relegation from the Southern League Premier South.

The season will finish on Saturday, April 22 with play-off semi-finals four days later.
