Hessenthaler encouraged potential prospects to come and show what they have at Crabble.

Commenting on the club’s website, the manager said: “It is never easy to let the players have it but unfortunately it is part of the job and decision making for the club where you are employed as a manager.

“Football is a tough and difficult business and it can be very cruel at times – that’s why I want to see if we can give anyone a second chance now.

“I can’t make any promises, but they will all have the chance to impress, and who knows, if they have the desire, the hunger and the ability to bounce back after being released, well, this could be a perfect opportunity. for them. “

The match will take place next month and will be by invitation only.
