The former Portland United boss was unveiled as Simkin’s new assistant a week after the Magpies ended last season in eleventh place with fifty-six points to their name.
Seven weeks on, Heath is hard at work at the Avenue Stadium, hoping to further improve the county town side’s fortunes.
He said: “I’m enjoying it and in the meetings I’ve had with Phil and Mark the immediate impression I got was they have a real passion for Dorchester Town. “It’s up to myself to match that but it has spurred me on to work as hard as I possibly can, not just for the club itself but to repay the faith they have put in me.
“They have given me a real opportunity and I thank them for that, I’ve got to make sure I match their ambition and hard work to help us hit the ground running when the league campaign starts.
“Everyone at the club has been very friendly and I’m sure the players will be no different.”
The Wey Valley School teacher went on to add: “As a three we are working hard, not just to bring people in but to get pre-season sorted and get the right balance between games and training.
We want to get off to a good start next season so we want to make sure pre-season is as thorough as possible in order to give ourselves the best possible chance of starting well.
“We have a squad that has shown they can beat anyone on their day and get into the top half of the table.
“The aim is to improve on last season’s position and if we get off to a good start it’s always possible.
“Our players know each other well and they know what each player can bring to the squad.
“The potential is there, all I can do is help Mark and Phil to make sure we strive for the consistency we need to get into the top half next season.”
