Dorchester Town have announced that midfielder Billy Lowes and defender Callum Laird have both agreed terms to play for the Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division club next season.

Lowes started his football career as a 10-year-old at the AFC Bournemouth academy where he spent four years before being released with an injury to his knee.

After a short spell in the boxing ring, he decided to return to football, and after a full recovery joined Yeovil Town’s academy, spending a full season there before the Glovers abandoned their youth programme.

He joined Poole Town in 2013 where he made thirteen first-team appearances and became the young player of the year before loans spells at Wincanton Town and AFC Totton.

He joined the Terras at the start of the 2015/16 season where he was a first choice regular in former manager Jason Matthews` squad.

Laird, the youngest of four brothers and the son of manager Craig Laird, is a very versatile defender who can play anywhere across the back four.

He started his career at Plymouth Argyle and Exeter City’s youth set-up before going on to play for Weymouth, Weston-super-Mare, Yate Town and more recently Bridgwater Town.

Lowes and Laird follow Jake Mawford and Neil Martin, who have also agreed terms and to remain at the Avenue for next season.
