Wimborne Town, relegated to the Pitching In Southern League Division One South, have moved to sign defender Oakley Hanger from former league rivals and neighbours Dorchester Town.
The 26-year-old re-joined Dorchester in July 2020 and took his total of games to 120.
Having originally made his debut in 2014, the former Magpie became a regular in the side at full-back going on to make over 60 appearances before moving to the USA, where he completed a four-year scholarship at Saginaw Valley State University, also playing for the Lander Bear Cats.
Manager James Stokoe told his club’s website: “I’m really pleased Oakley has agreed to join us for the upcoming season. Every time I’ve watched him play he’s been excellent, he gets up and down the pitch very well and has good delivery, he’s a solid right back and will help improve our defence. He’s also a very good character to have around the ground”.
