WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley has said that Ashley Wells’ return is a massive positive for the club.

Wells came on for Abdulai Baggie in the 89th minute in the 2-1 win away against Banbury United in his first appearance for the club in a month.

Wells had been out with injury which he sustained in the 2-0 home win against Tiverton Town.

Speaking after the 2-1 win against the Puritans Molesley said: “Another massive positive is that Ashley Wells travelled with us and he has come on for ten minutes at the end so we are going to slowly build him back up.”

Molesley highlighted how important Wells is to the club saying: “It is great to have him back around. He is club captain, he has been at the club longer than anyone and he really knows what it means to play for Weymouth.”

Weymouth have had Brandon Goodship and Calvin Brooks return from injury in recent weeks, as Molesley said: “We are slowly getting our squad back together so it is a massive positive having him back involved.”

Molesley added: “I think he is really enjoying being involved in this team. I think if you ask him out of all the teams he has played in which one he enjoys playing in I think he would probably tell you this one.

“It is great to have him back, he is such a big player for us.”

Weymouth are next in action against Redditch United at home on Saturday before the Boxing Day derby against Dorchester.
