WEYMOUTH are an “attractive proposition” for football agents and clubs looking to enhance players’ résumés with National League experience, boss Brian Stock has revealed.

During lockdown, Stock invited triallists to train with the Terras after the club emerged from their period of self-isolation following Covid-19 issues.

Having won back-to-back promotions, a brighter footballing glare is shining on the Bob Lucas Stadium as the club gains more attention.

And Stock feels that has translated to big interest in players looking to ply their trade at the Dorset side.

He told Echosport: “We invited in two or three triallists and we made sure it was done in the right way given what we’ve gone through.

“When we look at the Covid measures, we made sure they were OK to come in and train with the group.

“The issue we have is that the players that do come in need to be better than what we’ve already got.

“We do have quite a large squad, we’re looking at 24 players. One or two will need to go out, like I’ve said previously, on loan to get minutes under their belt.

“We’re actively looking to try and improve the squad all the time. I’m getting players given to me from various agents.

“Quite a lot of clubs have phoned up wanting to understand our situation and maybe put one or two players our way given we’re in National League football.

“It’s an attractive proposition for some of the players. I would like to think we would be actively looking to improve the squad, basically, every single day of the year.”
