WEYMOUTH chairman Ian White has delayed his expected exit from the Terras, Echosport understands.

White has served as Terras chief for four seasons, during which time he has overseen back-to-back promotions, three trophies and a relegation.

He had informed Weymouth of his desire to leave, until the club's board convened last week.

At the meeting, White was temporarily voted back onto the club's board to tend to matters deemed too important to leave unsorted. 

This is partly so his successor can help rebuild the Terras for their National League South campaign next season, both from structural and financial standpoints.

Following the 6-1 loss to Wrexham in late April - a result that relegated the Terras to National League South level - White indicated he would likely be stepping down at the end of the season.

Post-match, he told the Dorset Echo: "There will be a decision on what I am going to do. I probably am going to step away.

“I haven’t completely decided yet. It’s hard work.”

Elsewhere, a summer of change seems imminent at the Bob Lucas Stadium.

Mark Golsby will leave his director's role at the end of the season and Pete Saxby quit as the club's secretary in March, although the latter remains on the board of directors.

White has been fulfilling the secretary position ever since and cited professional and family reasons as considerations for stepping away as chairman.

Running the Wessex Fantasy Football competition and editing the club's match programme alongside his chairman duties, White is likely to give up all roles at the club later this summer.

Newest director and commercial guru Mark Palmer has been tipped as a possible successor to White.
