MIDFIELDERS Jordan Ngalo and Pierre Fonkeu havr left Weymouth following the expiry of their contracts.

Ngalo, 22, played 106 times for the Terras, scoring four goals.

Despite playing 23 matches in Weymouth’s Vanarama National League season, Ngalo could not bolt down a regular starting spot.

Manager Brian Stock spoke to Ngalo this week, ending a spell at Weymouth which began in December 2017 following his move from Blackfield & Langley.

In a statement, Weymouth said the decision not to renew Ngalo’s contract was taken with a “heavy heart”.

It read: “Following the expiry of Jordan Ngalo’s playing contract, we can confirm that he will be leaving the club.

“The decision not to retain Jordan’s services has been a difficult one and has been done with a heavy heart.

“Jordan has undoubtedly played his part in his three and a half years with us and will be missed. We wish Jordan every success for the future.”

Ngalo has achieved two promotions and three trophies with Weymouth.

Vice-chairman Paul Maitland said: “It’s the direction we’re moving now. We don’t have time to spend developing players.

“We’re in a position where everybody’s got to be ready to go all the time. Jordan is still a work in progress.

“As much as you’d like to see it through with him, he has been here three and a half years now. It’s probably right for him.

“He needs to go and play games of football and he has done well here. He’s another one who leaves with back-to-back promotions and has definitely played his part.

“He needs to go and get a consistency in his game now and get a whole load of games under his belt, rather than 20. He needs a 40-game season for him to really progress.

“That said, he’s another smashing lad that we hope goes on and does well for himself.

“He could be one of those ones that we look back on and think: ‘We’ve got it wrong’.

“At the moment, you have to judge on the here and now – and it’s the right time for us and Jordan to part ways.”

Fonkeu joined as a free agent in January as Weymouth beat off competition for his signature from Grimsby Town.

However, the former Lens and Norwich winger did not score during his time at the club.
