New deals for Walker and Clay
SCOTT Walker and Danny Clay have agreed new deals and will put pen to paper tomorrow afternoon at the Bob Lucas Stadium.
The news comes just a week after Ben Joyce also finalised terms as the Terras continue to look to tie down their top stars for next season as soon as possible.
Weymouth boss Brendon King told Echosport: “Scott and Danny have both agreed new deals until the end of next season and will sign tomorrow along with Ben Joyce, which is great news.
“Scott brings so much to the table as a captain and a leader and Danny has got a lot of experience too despite still only being 27.
“The way they both go about their business is fantastic, and Danny in particular perhaps doesn’t get the recognition he deserves because not only does he break things up in the middle for us but he is also a superb talker and organiser.”
He went on to add: “Add those three players to Kyle Critchell, who is already signed on for next season, and things are already taking shape.
“Although we are in the middle of another busy period it is important we keep trying to get these things sorted and hopefully we will have some more good news soon.”
The Terras host Banbury United tomorrow (3pm) but they are still sweating on the fitness of Barry McConnell (hamstring), Ashley Wells (illness) and Stephen Reed (illness).
King said: “Reedy was still feeling a little under the weather today and Ash has been suffering with a chest infection and a virus.
“Barry’s hamstring is also still dodgy so we will just have to see how they are later on and go from there.
“I am also waiting to hear on a possible loan player as we need to get someone in for when Ed Palmer is banned.”
* The Weymouth FC Supporters Association has called on the club’s fans to turn out in force for the remaining five home games.
WFCSA chairman Ade MacDonald said: “Brendon King and the team have hit some great form and are setting Terras fans up to enjoy the best finish to a season in a long while.
“With nine games remaining we have a genuine chance of seeing the lads make it into a play-off position.
“At the beginning of the season Brendon told us that his ambition this year was to establish a settled side and finish in or around the top 10 and I think all Terras fans would gladly have taken that after recent years.
"Brendon and his staff have settled the side and between them all they’re now exceeding ambition. We have five good home fixtures left and the more support we can give to the boys on the pitch, the better chance they have of giving us some great performances.”
* The ‘Old Gits’ have now contributed £75 each to the Weymouth FC coffers. The 13 supporters, who travel home and away, have agreed to pay out £1 each every time the Terras score a league goal and also pick up a point.
