Consecutive promotions, two years in the National League and almost consecutive relegations, the Terras have been in the thick of the action over recent seasons. A superior goal difference kept Weymouth up last term avoiding a return to the Southern Premier South, which they won four earlier. The Dorset side beat Dartford to win the National South playoffs in 2020 and after surviving the first campaign in the National League, they went down winless in fifteen until a final day victory over bottom side Dover Athletic. The Terras continued last season in much the same way and once again faced Dover Athletic in the last game. Starting in the drop zone Weymouth needed a win and they did it, claiming a fourth victory in five to narrowly survive another relegation.

Weymouth’s slide needed stopping, after relegation back to the National South then a terrible start to the season they were fighting relegation again. In September the Terras turned to Wilkinson, who had previously guided Hungerford Town to the National South. He won the Southern League Division One South West and Southern League Premier playoffs, then took the Crusaders to sixth in their debut National South campaign on a low budget. His work earned him a move to Wealdstone for a season before he joined Bracknell Town, where he won the Isthmian Division One South Central by a huge margin.

Summer Transfers

There has been plenty of comings and goings at Weymouth during the summer. It didn’t quite work out for Dan Roberts at Dartford so the forward has moved down to the Jurassic Coast. Another former Dart, Norman Wabo will join him alongside Brandon Goodship, who returns for a third spell with the Terras. The trio will be hoping to replace Bradley Ash’s goals who switched to Torquay United. Following Goodship from Salisbury will be Calvin Brooks and Gerard Benfield, who has turned a loan spell into a permanent deal. Chris McQueen makes his way down from north of the border, Charlie Rowan arrives from promoted Oxford City and Anthony Cheshire from Bracknell Town. Tyrique Clarke joins from Kings Langley, Leo Hamblin from Carshalton Athletic and Tom Stagg from Grays Athletic. Most recently Josh McQuoid has returned to the club from Aldershot Town.
