The Weymouth Football Club Board of Directors have agreed to offer a short term groundshare with Hamworthy United whilst work is undertaken on installing their new stand at the County Ground. The club faced the real threat of being demoted back to the Dorset Premier league due to ground grading issues.
Weymouth FC is run by volunteers and we understand how devastating that would have been to those that have worked tirelessly to get Hamworthy into the Pitching In Southern League Division 1 South & West.
Hammers Chairman, Steve Mitchener made the following comment:
“I would like to Weymouth Football Club, the board of directors, especially Chairman Paul Maitland, for their help in securing a ground share option for the forthcoming season, which will allow Hamworthy United to remain at step 4 in the NLS, whilst a new stand is built at The County Ground.”
Terras Chairman, Paul Maitland commented:
“When we were approached late last week by Hamworthy and learned how bad their situation was we felt compelled to offer our support for another local side. Less than a year ago faced the very real prospect of extinction and we needed the goodwill of other clubs and people to carry on, now it is our turn to step up and show the same support.”
