Dollingstown will begin the new season without Aaron Moffett after the experienced defender announced his intention to retire following 13 years at Planters Park.
Moffett has been with the club since their Mid-Ulster League days, joining after attracting attention whilst playing against them in a local cup final for Portadown BBOB.
Since then the 34-year-old has gone on to captain the Dollybirds to a plethora of trophies including, in 2020, the Irish Intermediate Cup.
In addition the inspirational Moffett helped the club lift the Bob Radcliffe Cup during the 2016/17 season whilst, on a local level, he played his part in the clinching of five Intermediate A league titles, five Marshall Cup victories and a further two in the Premier Cup. 
Dollingstown chairman Hubert Watson played a glowing tribute to the long serving Moffett on the official club website.
"While we are very sad that he has announced his retirement from playing I am over the moon that he has agreed to join our management team," he said.
"Hopefully he will be able to replace myself as chairman of our great club in the next couple of years and help drive us forward for the next 25 years ahead and I will support him 100% from the background.
"One man one club one huge success and skipper thanks for 13 glorious trophy led years at DFC."
