WEYMOUTH manager Brian Stock is confident the healthy relationship between the Terras and Bournemouth can continue to exist.

In mid-April, Stock’s men were able at short notice to arrange a friendly with the Cherries’ under-23s side, drawing 0-0.

The fixture followed loan moves this season for Portland-born Brennan Camp, Corey Jordan and Christian Saydee – the latter duo since returning to the Vitality Stadium.

Former Bournemouth midfielder Stock has maintained the strong connection between the two Dorset clubs since predecessor and Cherries’ under-23s assistant Mark Molesley left to join Southend.

Asked if he felt relations were still strong, Stock told Echosport: “Yeah, I think there were no doubts about that.

“It’s been a good exercise in terms of the friendly and borrowing one or two of their players.

“That relationship will still remain strong. Shaun Cooper (U23 manager) is a good friend of mine and Carl Fletcher (loans manager).

“It’s an easy one for me to make contact with Bournemouth.”
