    It could almost have been a PR stunt…

    About 15 years ago I attended Fraserburgh 10 Clachnacuddin 0, which was possibly the last match that Clach would play before going defunct, fielding a youth team and a few guys who were hanging about Inverness street corners. That they somehow survived and continue to compete in the Highland League ( even winning the title about 5 years ago) is a sign that there is always hope. Good Luck to Weymouth – and shame on Jeff Stelling and his smug wittering crew.

    I was at that Dagenham-Hereford 9-0. They had no such excuses, just an early sending off followed by a dispirited team collapsing. At the time Dagenham were managed by Garry Hill, who not long afterwards resigned before popping up as manager of Hornchurch a few days later, only to leave there when the money ran out as well. I think some of the other individuals that were involved in that particular shambles were involved in what’s happened to Weymouth as well, which all goes to prove something.

    I see that since this the news has been reporting that Weymouth’s fans made in excess of £1m from the bookie betting against their team in this match. While I applaud the novel way of raising funds, I would be interested to know how much of these winnings will end up in the club’s emergency fund.
