Dorchester Town

Dorchester's escape from the drop zone - by a single point when eventually finishing 18th - was helped by taking 4 points from Hitchin in 2016-17. They pulled off a shock 1-0 Monday night win at Top Field in February before, in the reverse fixture, recovering from an early 2 goal deficit (Matt Lench and an Down own goal) to secure a draw.

The Magpies have struggled to impose themselves at this level following relegation after ten seasons in the Conference South which ended when they finished bottom in 2013-14 and were relegated.

Last term's results were a reversal of the 2015-16 games when the Canaries did the double - Brett Donnelly securing the points in Dorset, and Jonny McNamara, Alasan Ann and Brett Donnelly grabbing the goals in a 3-2 win at Top Field. 

Our first ever encounters against the Magpies, in 2014-15, saw a tame 0-0 draw at Top Field but a 2-1 defeat in Dorset when the Canaries finished with nine men.

Dorchester’s stadium stands on land owned by the Duchy of Cornwall and was designed by the Duchy’s architects, with the Duke of Cornwall himself – HRH the Prince of Wales – taking an active interest in its design.
