The Terror Of The Terras: Yes, It’s Back To Weymouth Again!

On Saturday, Weymouth beat Salisbury City by two goals to nil in the Zamaretto League Premier Division. It was a significant moment for the Terras. Having started the season under a ten point deduction for entering into administration towards the end of last season, they had spent the whole of this season rooted to the bottom of the table but this win – their third in the last four matches – lifted them out of the relegation places for the first time this season. Yet at Weymouth, as at so many other clubs at the moment, on the pitch events are taking a back seat to what is going on behind the scenes. Once again, Weymouth FC is in trouble. Weymouth’s status as an apparently perpetual crisis club goes back to 2007 and the sudden decision of hotelier Martyn Harrison to put the entire team – which was then riding comparatively high in the Blue Square Premier – up for sale. The various twists and turns of politicking that they have undergone since then could fill a library, but probably key points to remember are former chairman Malcolm Curtis, who transferred land the club owned surrounding its Wessex (now Bob Lucas – it was renamed in July 2010 for a deceased former chairman) Stadium into his own name and the arrival at the club of George Rolls in November...

It’s the final round of the competition before the clubs of the Blue Square Premier enter the competition, so there is a potential reward for the competing teams. With a final at Wembley the ultimate reward, there is all to play for and our first match comes from it. Our first match sees Dartford of the Blue Square South travel to Thurrock. The two teams are both battling relegation from that league at the moment, so this match might turn out to be a welcome relief from their poor league form. The second match also comes from the FA Trophy. Welling United have had their fair share of financial difficulties so far this season, but on the pitch they have been having quite a successful time of it and currently sit in third place in the Blue Square South. They were at home on Saturday afternoon against Tonbridge Angels of the Ryman League Premier Division. Tonbridge were also subject to rumours about their situation earlier this year, but they have had a reasonable start to the season and are in eleventh place in the table. Our third match comes from the Premier Division of the Zamaretto League. Weymouth’s difficulties have been extensively documented on this site...
