Cash-strapped Bees will get aid from Terras
BRENDON King has confirmed that the Terras will play Bridport in a friendly to help boost the Western League club’s coffers.
The Weymouth boss got in touch with Bees’ manager Trevor Senior after it emerged that Bridport’s income had taken a hit due to a lack of home games in the first half of the season.
The date of the game depends on when both clubs can fit in an extra fixture but King told Echosport it will definitely go ahead at Brid-port’s St Mary’s Field home.
“I don’t like to see clubs struggling so I offered to take a team down there,” he said. “The only question now is when we can fit it in because they’ve got a backlog of games.
“We’ve been through struggles ourselves and know what it’s like to have problems with income.
“I’ve known Trevor for many years and Bridport is a great club, we just want to do what we can.
“The game will definitely happen at some point.”
* The funeral of former Terras’ boss Stan Charlton takes place tomorrow at Weymouth Crematorium (12.15pm).
Fans are then invited to show their respect for Stan in the Top Marks Lounge at the Bob Lucas Stadium.
