Weymouth chairman supports Dorchester move

Weymouth Football Club chairman George Rolls believes a ground share with Blue Square Bet South side Dorchester Town would boost the club’s financial position.  

The Terras are currently in the Zamaretto Premier League with Rolls set to let fans decide whether he remains at the club at a general meeting on February 24th with some unhappy at his plans for the side.

Speaking to BBC Radio Solent Rolls stressed the club was not being forced out of its ground but would be better off at Dorchester.

"It costs us more money playing at our stadium with our current crowds than if we had 100 supporters turn up at Dorchester," Rolls said.

"We've not spoken to Wessex Delivery Partnership about it, they might well be happy to carry on and wait to find us a new stadium somewhere in the borough," Rolls added.

"That would hopefully mean we can stand on our own two feet. Or, if not, the site becomes redundant until WDP buy a new stadium."

The Terras currently attract around 500 supporters for each game at the Wessex Stadium.
