Crittenden To Extend Magpies Stay

Veteran midfielder Nick Crittenden is set to extend his stay at Conference South outfit Dorchester Town after agreeing terms on a new deal with the county town club.

The 34-year-old, who joined from Weymouth in the summer of 2008, will make it official this week, according to Magpies' boss Phil Simkin.

The Dorchester manager expressed his delight at the news following his side's 2-0 friendly win against Poole Town on Saturday.

Crittenden (pictured) was one of the standout performers during the match at Tatnum as goals from Ben Watson and trialist Nathan Peprah-Annan secured victory.

"Nick is phenomenal," said Simkin. "At 34-years-old he is the fittest player at the club and is a great example to all young kids.

"He's played for Chelsea, done the lot, and he's a humble and really nice bloke.

"He looks after himself so well that he could play for another three or four seasons, he's incredible.

"Nick was unlucky last year because he got injured pre-season and I brought Jake Gosling in and he couldn't get back in the side.

"But when he did get back in he was outstanding.

"He loves it at Dorchester and I've said to him that when the day comes that he has to stop playing there will be a coaching job here for him."
