Chairman George Rolls took over struggling Weymouth in November
Weymouth FC's immediate future appears to have been secured after the troubled club entered into an official agreement with creditors.
Under the terms of the Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA) the club, which has debts of around £900,000, will only repay close to £80,000.
More than 80% of creditors agreed to accept 9% of the money owed to them over a five-year period.
The agreement was reached after a meeting in Chigwell, Essex, on Friday.
Current chairman George Rolls rescued the Blue Square South club from administration in November, but debts continued to grow to the extent that he warned it would go into liquidation without an official agreement.
Steve Beasant, representing a group of creditors owed around £200,000, told BBC Sport: "A lot of creditors are losing out under the CVA, including Mr Rolls, but I'm pleased that Weymouth Football Club now has a chance to move forward."
Weymouth were in financial trouble when Rolls took over at the Wessex Stadium and he and other directors say they pumped around £200,000 into the club to keep it afloat.
Following confirmation of the CVA there is a 28-day period during which interested parties can appeal against the decision.
