WEYMOUTH chairman Ian White has urged Terras’ fans to join the Wessex Fantasy Football (WFF) league to help the club make extra signings.

Weymouth have already made 16 signings this summer, with Brandon Goodship’s move covered by the WFF.

The scheme, run by White, has raised £165,000 in recent seasons, including £30,000 this campaign already.

Weymouth are looking to source extra funds to help meet the heightened cost of competing in the Vanarama National League.

White told Echosport: “We’ve already started and the minute I was aware Brandon was available and interested in coming back, I managed to raise enough money to cover him for the season.

“It was a very generous supporter, who helped me all through the six years it’s been running.

“We’ve seen some really good triallists with us in the last couple of friendlies.

“We’re aiming to try and raise as much as we can through Wessex to help Brian (Stock, manager) with these triallists and hopefully give us extra money in our budget.

“You can grab it from the Wessex Fantasy website or through the social media links.

“Again, it’s £10 a month. £9 of that goes to player budget and the other pound goes to a prize fund.

“The more people that get playing the more you can earn money from it – actually, most people donate it straight back to the club.”

Last season, White aimed for 2,000 players.

However, while that ambitious target was never realised, he trebled the number of players compared to 2019.

“That was over-ambitious, and people told me it was,” he confessed.

“What I actually did get was three times the number of people from the season before playing.

“The more we get, the more we can help Brian with his budget. Obviously, it’s an opportunity for the fans.

“We’re having to drum up major commercial revenue, because we really need it.

“If some of the small businesses think it’s a step too far, why not become a partner of Wessex Fantasy?

“We’ll put your logos up on that, £100, and you’re still helping the club.”
