Following the initial statement made after Saturday’s fixture with Farnborough, we wish to update supporters, staff, players, and the wider audience that have an interest in this matter.
The Board of Directors are appalled and furious with the actions seen on Saturday from people who claim to be supporters of our club.
We have spoken with Jack Turner and offered our apologies to him, his wife and family. Clearly this is not sufficient and with the help of Farnborough we continue to put together information to enable us to deal with this fully.
Unfortunately, this incident was not the only one to occur on Saturday. The removal was necessary of other fans in attendance and these alleged fans will also be dealt with in the strongest possible manner that we are able to sanction. We extend our apologies to everyone that attended the game on Saturday and was effected by what happened.
Lately Weymouth F.C. has been dogged by a minority of individuals who seem to want to cause maximum damage to the Club’s reputation whilst claiming to be fans. We believe we speak for all fair-minded Supporters, Volunteers, Staff, and Players when we say enough is enough. Whilst we recognise supporters’ rights to voice an opinion and indeed welcome it, we will not stand by and watch a minority ruin our club with their behaviour. Quite simply, if you do not want to support our club in a respectful way then you are not welcome, and every effort will be made to exclude you going forward.
We wish to place on record our thanks to Farnborough who through no fault of their own have had to deal with a difficult situation and continue to offer great support and help as we get to the bottom of this.
A further update will be made at the conclusion of our investigation, but we re-iterate our stance, we will not accept this behaviour and sanctions will be implemented.
