WEYMOUTH boss Mark Molesley revealed that the Wessex Fantasy Football League helped fund the Terras’ move for Andreas Robinson this summer.
Robinson joined from Havant and joins the likes of Jordan Rose and Brandon Goodship among others in having had his move helped by the fantasy league.
Molesley took time to thank the fans that pay to play the game for doing so, with the money helping with the transfer budget for the club.
He told Echosport: “The new additions have been bedded in well but without the work of the Wessex Fantasy Football League (those) acquisitions would not have happened.
“So we are really pleased with the work that is going in off the pitch at the football club at the moment, and most notably the Wessex Fantasy Football League, that enables us get the players, it helped us secure Brandon (Goodship, who departed for Southend this summer) and then it helped us secure Andreas Robinson as well from Havant which is a big signing for us.
“Without that help, our task would be a lot tougher.”
Molesley also mentioned that the club is in a solid position financially, but that he knows the challenge of just staying in the Vanarama National League South, which Weymouth begin with their trip to Maidstone on Saturday.
Molesley said: “The fans put their money in and play that game, and it has such an impact on us, I can’t thank everyone enough for participating in it and those that are thinking about doing it please do it because it makes such a difference to us.
“The club is in a great position at the moment financially, but we are going into a league where we are the underdogs and we are going to have to punch above our weight just to stay in there.”
