Weymouth Football Club can confirm that Ben Thomson and Andreas Robinson have departed the club.
Ben Thomson joined the Terras at the start of the 2015-16 season from Frome Town and made a total of 255 appearances for the club, scoring 66 and assisting 47. Andreas joined from Havant and Waterlooville in 2019 and made a total of 80 appearances, scoring 6 and assisting 5. Both made important and historic contributions for the club, with Ben and Andreas both involved in our climb up to the National League in their respected seasons with us.
David Oldfield: “Ben Thomson and Andreas Robinson are leaving the club with our very best wishes. We have tried to retain their services but with our training becoming more during the day time this season, it has become very difficult for both lads, as they have important jobs.
Both players have been very significant to Weymouth FC. Andreas with his leadership, attitude and desire and Ben with his exceptional goal threat, bravery and ability. They both have been a part of success at Weymouth with Ben scoring a truly significant number of goals and appearances that was recognised by the club this season.
Ben, in particular, has been a huge fan favourite and scored brilliant goals. He’s been at the club since 2015 and leaves with legendary status. Andreas was part of the climb up the leagues and played an significant part towards the end of last season including the final day win. We are disappointed to see both players leave but wish them the very best for their future football careers. They both will always be welcome at Weymouth FC.”
David Oldfield also gave an update on this summer’s recruitment: “I know fans are looking to the club for news of new signings. The responsibility on the football side for new signings is with me. We have made many offers and are awaiting confirmation of signings and hope to update you all soon. The crucial factor is to recruit players who want to be at Weymouth FC. We have to have a group that are hungry and willing to work for the club. This is a work in progress and a true rebuild of the playing squad. Thanks for your patience and support and hope for more news shortly.”
Ian White: “Both Ben Thomson and Andy Robinson have been great servants to the club and have played their part in both our promotions. I would like to, as I sure all Terras fans will want to, wish them luck for the future.”
Weymouth Football Club would like to wish both Ben and Andreas all the best for the future and thank them for their fantastic contributions in a Terras shirt.
