Weymouth Football Club’s future remained unclear last night after yet another dramatic day of twists and turns at the Wessex Stadium.

Echosport understands that former Cambridge United chairman George Rolls had an offer accepted yesterday afternoon while the Chris Ryan and Steve Beasant bid was kicked into touch.

However, it appears the position may have changed yet again after a proposed Press conference, arranged for 7.30pm last night, was called off less than an hour before it was due to start.

“The board of directors have offered for me to take control of the club,” said Rolls. “Obviously a Press conference was called and then cancelled, and I’m waiting to see what the next move is.

“As far as I’m concerned it’s been offered to me and the paperwork is being sorted out and will be signed if all directors are still agreeable.”

He added: “Everyone knows what a circus act Weymouth Football Club has been over the last few weeks, so it’s no surprise to me.”

Ian Winsor, who has resigned as a director of the club but remains as company secretary, said: “I felt I couldn’t be associated with Mr Beasant in particular so I felt I could no longer stay as a director. I was not present in any board meeting held yesterday but I did receive a call telling me that the board had accepted George Rolls’ offer and as company secretary I was requested to prepare the necessary paperwork.”

Meanwhile, ex-chairman Malcolm Curtis is believed to have sent an email to club directors prior to yesterday’s midday deadline, which was set for Ryan’s takeover to be completed.

In it he states that Ryan and Beasant do not have his support and should they take over the running of the club, he would demand immediate repayment of his £221,000 loan.

Curtis appears to favour Rolls, who has negotiated terms of repayment with him, but insisted that liquidation should be given “full consideration” and could be the best option for the club’s creditors – of which he is one.

When contacted by the Echo last night, Curtis said: “I understand it’s incredibly difficult for the board of Weymouth FC to make a decision and I wish them well in their endeavours.”

Hennessy has been unavailable for comment since he called the Press conference at 4.15pm. Ryan did not wish to make a comment but hopes to clarify his position today, while the club itself is expected to release a statement this morning.
