Malmesbury Vics sign leading Cirencester Town defender

ELLIS DUNTON has left Cirencester Town to continue his career with Malmesbury Vics of the Toolstation Western League Division One.

Dunton has rejoined a number of friends and former Town graduates in Kev Bridgeman's side including captain George Peare, Adam Clatworthy and Josh Langley.

The uncompromising defender, who is also a regular match winner at set pieces, spent a year in Adelaide with his Australian girlfriend Kim in 2016 and is waiting for his permanent resident's visa to come through so he can rejoin her.

While in Adelaide, Dunton played for State League side Salisbury United.

He returned to Cirencester in the spring in the ultimately fruitless attempt to stave off relegation from the Southern Premier and he re-signed this season in the knowledge that he would be going back to Oz full time at some stage

Dunton, 24, a member of Town's Southern League-winning squad of 2013/14, recently completed his 200th appearance for the club but is currently sidelined with an ankle injury.

"Ellis is a fine player but things have not worked out for him this season," said Town boss Charlie Griffin. "We have brought in Matt Jones which gives us competition in the left back position and maybe it is best that Ellis is going somewhere and start enjoying his football again.

"He also disappointed me recently when getting injured in a five-a-side game with his mates."

Vics boss Bridgeman is delighted to have signed Dunton although he will have to wait before he can use him.

"Ellis is injured so can't play a part in the league game at Calne Town tonight," said Bridgeman.

"If fit, he will still not be eligible to play in the FA Vase replay against London Lions on Saturday as he was not registered at the time of the original abandoned match.

"His first game for us looks likely to be the league game at Roman Glass St George on Saturday, October 7."
