Terras' board backing Brendon
8:55am Thursday 11th October 2012 in Sport
BRENDON King’s position at the Bob Lucas Stadium is not up for discussion, according to chairman Nigel Biddlecombe.
Despite some fans calling for change after a poor start to the season, it appears the Weymouth board have no intentions of sacking the first-team boss – at least for the time being anyway.
King’s men have picked up just eight points from their opening 10 league games but the Terras’ hierarchy is confident that together they can turn things around.
Biddlecombe told Echosport: “Brendon King’s position is not the subject of any scheduled discussions at board level.
“He has set out to do a job over two years, not overnight, and the board certainly doesn’t need to give him a vote of confidence.
“He is well aware that results are not going our way at present and he is doing everything possible to fix that.
“If they don’t change then we may have to revisit the situation but as a board we have every faith that it will turn around.”
In the summer, the board sanctioned moves for experienced players such as Barry McConnell, Scott Walker, Kyle Critchell, Danny Clay, Dan Smith and Ben Joyce but so far they have seen very little return.
Commenting further, Biddlecombe added: “Brendon had a long conversation with the players on Tuesday night about the lack of results and we are all hoping it will have the desired effect at Banbury United on Saturday.
“Although some people might not believe it, they are hurting every bit as much as the fans and I know they are determined to make amends.
“At the same time it is fair to say that we do need to look at one or two things and Brendon’s doing exactly that.
“We are in constant contact with him and together we will get it right.”
The Terras currently sit fourth-bottom in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division, just one point above the drop-zone.
