DORCHESTER Town midfielder Tom Mitchell and his brother Josh are the new owners of the club.

The pair were handed control of the club after their father and former chairman Eddie moved to AFC Bournemouth.

However Tom has insisted that playing is his main priority and the boardroom dealings will be left to brother Josh, telling the Dorset Echo: "It is an exciting development but although the club will now be in mine and my brother's name my main interest is still playing football.

"As for the other side of it, it will be Josh who will be more involved in the boardroom than me. I won't do much on that side at all."
