JACK Hoey has become the latest new recruit at the New Cuthbury, with the attacker joining from Wimborne’s Southern League Division One South rivals AFC Totton.

The news follows the announcement that former Totton winger Curtis Young was leaving the Magpies after four years with the club.

Hoey, who initially came through the ranks at Christchurch, had previously announced his departure from Snows Stadium at the start of May.

The 26-year-old had previously spent time with the Stags back in 2015, before leaving the country to play his football in America.

Prior to his move stateside, Hoey had represented Bashley, New Milton, and Alresford Town.

Upon his return to the UK, Hoey linked up with Weymouth, where he was sparingly used over the course of two seasons.

Whilst with the Terras, Hoey also spent time on loan at Dorchester Town.

Bournemouth-based Hoey returned to Totton ahead of the 2021-22 campaign, with the Stags reportedly paying a minimal fee to capture his services from Weymouth.

The attacker scored 17 times in 37 appearances across all competitions for the Stags.

Hoey is the eighth new face to arrive at the New Cuthbury this summer, with manager James Stokoe strengthening his side ahead of a push for an immediate return to the Southern League’s top-flight.

Manager James Stokoe told Wimborne's website: “Jack is someone I was trying to get in last season before his move to Totton.

"He is a fantastic player who can play in all of the forward positions. He had a very productive season last year with Totton scoring and assisting in over 30 goals for the team.

"We look forward to having Jack with us this season.”

Jack Hoey added: “I’m happy to be joining Wimborne.

"They have a lovely set up and a great bunch of lads!

"The club is working hard to progress and it’s an exciting project to join. Hopefully we can bring some enjoyment back to the place for all the fans and everyone associated with the club.”
