FORMER Dorchester manager Callum Brooks has joined the coaching set-up at Wimborne Town.

Magpies on Saturday announced Brooks’s arrival, which is said to allow assistant manager James Stokoe more time to focus on playing.

Brooks resigned as Dorchester boss earlier this month. He has also managed Wessex League Hamworthy United and been assistant to Tom Killick at Poole Town.

A post on Brooks’s Twitter account said: “Delighted to be on board. Looking forward to being part of a top group and working hard for a wonderful club.”

Magpies’ home clash withy Merthyr Town was on Saturday postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Cuthbury.
