Dolby makes his move
Story courtesy of
The experienced Burton Albion utility man has been playing for the Moatmen on a loan basis since the start of the season.

But now after playing for Rovers, Albion and Stapenhill in the opening weeks of the season he is expected to settle at the Moat Ground.
Brewers manager Neil Warnock said: Now that Steve has played in the FA Cup for them hes their player as far as Im concerned.

In an emergency I might ask Frank Northwood to let Steve play for us on loan but apart from that hes now a Gresley player.

Northwood said: Im glad this one has been sorted out. I didnt like playing Steve in one match and leaving him out for the next.

Northwood has also carried out his threat to strengthen his forward line.

He has signed striker Reggie Priest from Blakenhall the man sent off for fighting with Stuart Watkiss at the Moat Ground only two weeks ago.

Im also trying to complete a couple more details in the next few days, said Northwood.
