WEYMOUTH have parted company with manager Brian Stock, the Terras have announced.

Former Wales international midfielder Stock exits Weymouth having lost seven successive Vanarama National League matches.

He won just 17 of 69 games in charge but did turn fortunes around last January on his way to helping the Terras finish 18th on their return to the National League last season, following an 11-year absence.

His final game was Saturday's 1-0 defeat to relegation rivals Southend United, the loss leaving Weymouth in 21st - four points from safety with 23 matches remaining.

During the match against Southend, Stock was subjected to boos and chants calling for his departure from irate home fans.

The ex-Bournemouth and Doncaster midfielder told Echosport post-match that he did not fear for his future, however 96 hours later he has been relieved of his first job in management.

In a brief statement, the Terras said: "Weymouth FC this morning can confirm following a meeting with the board that first-team manager Brian Stock and the club have parted company and that there will be more details to follow later."

Echosport understands some members of Stock's backroom staff are likely to follow him out of the door.

Weymouth are also expected to be managerless for the FA Trophy fourth round tie at Dartford on Saturday, with the Terras thought to be favouring a temporary in-house caretaker.

Stock had signed defender Haji Mnoga from Portsmouth for the Southend game in a loan deal to the end of the season.

Portsmouth are monitoring Weymouth's manager situation before deciding on Mnoga's future.

While Weymouth missed out on right-back Leon Davies, who joined Southend yesterday, the Terras are closing in on striker Jordan Greenidge, released from Newport last week.
