WEYMOUTH captain Josh McQuoid is set to leave the club, the Terras have announced.

Former Northern Ireland international McQuoid, 32, spent four seasons with the Terras, totalling 113 games and scoring 28 goals with 13 assists.

McQuoid, who took the captaincy in 2019 under boss Mark Molesley, was part of the historic back-to-back promotion winning squad as Weymouth returned to the National League in August 2020.

McQuoid leaves Weymouth after their relegation to the National League South, although he was top scorer with nine goals in all competitions, recording three assists.

With McQuoid out of contract this summer, talks were held over an extension.

However, the former Aldershot forward is expected to re-join the Shots, along with fellow ex-Weymouth man Ollie Harfield, for a reunion with Molesley.

Current manager David Oldfield led the messages of gratitude shown to the former Bournemouth man.

He said: "I would like to put on record our thanks and best wishes to Josh.

"He is out of contract and is exercising his right to move on. We spoke about a new contract offer here but his decision is to leave, which we respect.

"Josh has been a standout character for Weymouth FC. As the captain, leader and goalscorer, he maintained his professionalism throughout the previous difficult season.

"He has had success in his time here, is highly regarded by both fans and everyone at the club and we wish him the very best for the future."

Weymouth chairman Ian White also paid tribute to McQuoid, admitting his quality "will be missed".

White said: "It has been a pleasure to have Josh with us on our amazing journey from the Southern Premier to the National League.

"He will be missed by us all but we wish him the very best for whatever he does next."

In a further statement on social media, the Terras said: "Everyone at Weymouth Football Club would like to wish Josh and his family all the best for the future and thank him for his fantastic contribution in a Terras shirt."

McQuoid is the eighth player to leave Weymouth this summer along with Harfield, Ross Fitzsimons, Taofiq Olomowewe, Ben Morgan, Martell Taylor-Crossdale, Jordan Greenidge and Josh Leslie-Smith.
