Weymouth Football Club can confirm that goalkeeper Gerard Benfield has left the club and has signed for Wimborne Town.
Brian Stock: “I’d like to thank Gerard for all his efforts during his time with Weymouth FC. He has a very likeable personality and will be sorely missed in the changing room. Gerard had to be patient last season, the one thing we highlighted this year before signing him for the season was for him to play games while on loan. He did that with Dorchester and has done really well. I think the opportunity now to play regular games at Wimborne, a club where he is loved was an option Gerard felt was right for him at this present time of his career.
On behalf of myself, the players, staff and everyone associated with Weymouth we wish Gerard all the best for the future and thank him for his contributions to Weymouth FC.”
