STRIKER Stewart Yetton would be “delighted” to continue as Terras’ captain if boss Jason Matthews wants him to remain in the role.

Yetton took over the skipper’s armband from Sam Poole for Tuesday night’s 4-2 loss to Chesham, the first time he has done so at Weymouth since joining the club last summer.

The experience is one Yetton certainly enjoyed, however, at the moment he does not know if he will retain the captaincy for Saturday’s trip to league leaders Hemel Hempstead.

But Yetton admits that he would jump at the chance if is asked to lead the side again this weekend.

“We’ve got a fairly young team and I enjoyed the responsibility of being able to talk to the players and gee them up beforehand,” he said.

“It’s something I would be interested in doing again but I’m not sure what the long-term plans are.

“As long as Jason wanted me to do it I would be delighted to.

“With the experience I’ve had and the games I’ve played I feel I am up to the job.”

The Calor Southern Premier play-offs may be out of Weymouth’s reach now, but Yetton is well aware that there is still a lot left to play for this season.

He added: “We need to be ready to challenge next season and Jason is looking at who he is going to be keeping and who he could be bringing in.

“Players are playing for their futures at the club and I want us to finish the season as high as we can.

“We need to get through the Hemel game and then we’ve got a run of matches against teams that we’ve got results against in the past.

“We want to take as many points as we can to build a platform for next season.”
