“Due to the severity of his head injuries, he will now have to wait for three years to pursue his career.
“Following my investigation, we have now secured CCTV footage which clearly shows the assault, the offender and a number of witnesses who I am keen to speak with.
“I would like to urge witnesses to come forward to help with enquiries and I want to stress that they are not implicated in this offence.
“All calls will be treated in strict confidence.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101.
