Weymouth Football Club can announce that the club has given Tyler Cordner permission to speak with other clubs, after expressing his desire to leave the club.

Tyler Cordner arrived last summer following the expiry of his contract at AFC Bournemouth. A reliable member of the Terras back line last season, Tyler made 44 appearances, scoring 3 and assisting 1.

In a statement on social media, Cordner said: “Unfortunately, I have taken the decision to leave the club. I just want to take this time to say thank you to everyone at Weymouth FC for giving me the opportunity and support playing for the club last season, I thank the fans for their continuous support throughout which was a very tough season. I have no doubt in my mind that the club will return to the National League in the nearby future. I’d also like to thank all the staff I’ve worked with this season and I wish you all the very best in your next chapters. #UpTheTerras”

David Oldfield spoke to us on both Cordner and Harfield’s departures, plus an update on recruitment: “We would like to say a big thank you to Tyler and Ollie for their time and efforts at Weymouth FC. Both have been important players and are leaving the club. Tyler has a relegation clause in his contract and Ollie has been allowed to leave, by my decision. Both move on with our gratitude and respect and we wish them the very best for the future.

We are working hard behind the scenes to secure new signings and hope to be able to announce some positive news soon. It will be a rebuilding process at the club with many players having left. We are working to re-sign some of the existing players and will endeavour to refill the squad with the characters and work ethic that can be an ongoing part of Weymouth FC philosophy.”

Weymouth Football Club would like to thank Tyler for his contribution to the team last season and wish him and his family all the very best for the future.
