Two in, two out at Queensgate

Bridlington Town are delighted to announce the re-signing of experienced goalkeeper Phil Dobson from Hall Road Rangers.

The veteran shot stopper has worked with the gaffer before at Hull United and has proven his skill and experience time and time again. He was included in the NCEL Division One team of the season in 2016-17 for helping Hall Road to the title last season.

“I’m really happy to welcome Dobbo to Bridlington Town, he comes with lots of experience and will bring some calm to our back four,” the gaffer said.

He added: “We have been conceding way too many goals when we are defending well but at the moment it’s one shot one goal and it’s not been good enough. Dobbo will make his debut on Saturday and going forward will be our number one goalkeeper.”

Though while Dobson is cup-tied for the FA Vase game against Tow Law, having played for Hall Road, the gaffer has brought in Adam Nicholson as a back up ‘keeper.

“Both train tomorrow with the team for the first time. Thank you to Bill Gill and Darren Sunley for their help getting Dobbo over the line. A pleasure to deal with as always.”

Two players have also left Queensgate, with Benn Lewis and James Hitchcock departing the club.

“Hitchy was offered the opportunity to stay and fight for his shirt like everybody else but saw himself above that so decided to leave.”

We thank them both for their hard work during their time with The Seasiders and wish them the best of luck for the future.

Our next game is Saturday’s trip to Maltby Main.
