SHANE Krac has called an abrupt end to his short stint with the Terras after he revealed that he has left the club due to work and family commitments.

The former Tiverton Town man had enjoyed a strong start to his career at the Bob Lucas Stadium, but announced his sudden exit via Twitter.

Krac, who initially penned a one-year deal with Weymouth back in May, told Echosport: “This isn’t a decision made because of football, it’s purely for my little boy, the travelling takes so much time away.

“When I got there the football was brilliant but I couldn’t get my head around leaving the house at six in the morning and getting home late, I just couldn’t really do it.

“It meant that every Saturday I had to get my little boy to stay with someone else and, in the end, I should have thought about it more before I committed. I just didn’t anticipate how tough it was going to be.

The tough-tackling midfielder found the net twice for the Terras in pre-season against Guernsey and his local club Plymouth Parkway, who he has now signed for.

Commenting further on the midfielder’s exit, Weymouth manager Jason Matthews added: “I am really disappointed, I felt that Shane had a massive impact and personally I liked him as a lad as well. It is a big blow but he has to put his family first.

“I understand it is a lot of commitment from where he lives. I can’t speak highly enough of him as a person and on the pitch he has been fantastic for me.

“It’s just a case of his personal circumstances which we have to respect as a club.

Krac’s departure brings room for manoeuvre in the Terras’ squad and Matthews insists he will explore all avenues to replace him, either with a new signing, or by assessing the options already available to him.

“We are actively looking and I have few irons in the fire, we will take it from there and there may be a case where we look to sign someone,” he added.

“At the same time there are still a few people who are waiting for their chance and it gives them an opportunity to step up to the plate.”
