Dolly Blues fight to keep star Dodgson

PRIZE asset Lee Dodgson could leave Lancaster City in the near future, according to Dolly Blues boss Tony Hesketh.

Dodgson rejoined the club for pre-season but Hesketh admits there has been a lot of interest in the City winger who would be free to leave as he is a non-contract player.

The City boss said: “Lee is a much sought after commodity and other clubs are expressing an interest in him.

“But we see him as the missing link. Dave Swarbrick is a large void to fill but we feel Lee has all the qualities and more to replace Dave.

“He has played wide but I see him being able to play as a centre forward and look forward to him scoring many many goals.”

One player who has joined City is Fleetwood Town defender Jack Duggan who has rejoined the club on loan after a successful three month spell at the Giant Axe last season.

Hesketh said: “It’s great news. He was outstanding for us in the last three months of last season.

“It looked unlikely he would be returning as Fleetwood picked up a few injuries in pre-season. But (Fleetwood manager) Micky Mellon changed his mind and asked whether we wanted Jack and we quickly said yes.”
