George Rolls' exit will not hurt us says Weymouth boss

Weymouth boss Martyn Rogers insists the resignation of chairman George Rolls will not negatively affect his side.

Rolls resigned as Terras chief on Monday, leaving the club in the Zamaretto Premier Division drop-zone.

Rogers told BBC Radio Solent: "I'm sure George had his reasons and his decision was best for himself and the club.

"It won't affect the players, in this job bosses come and go and it's down to the team to perform and play football, so I envisage they'll be no different."

On Tuesday a meeting was held between Rogers and Weymouth associate directors Mark Coleman and Nigel Biddlecombe to discuss the future of the club.

I'm sure I will be informed at some stage about what is happening but that's for the board to deal with because I've got a job to do

Weymouth then stated on the club website that they hope to remain in existence and Rogers says his main priority now is to help the team win games.

"What has gone on has nothing to do with me, I just want to get on with my job and look ahead to the Banbury fixture this weekend," said Rogers.

"As far as I am concerned the important thing is the football. Every game in this league is a tough match and we need to go there to win.

"I just need to be on the ball now with the way we play, the side I pick and the formation.

"I'm sure I will be informed at some stage about what is happening but that's for the board to deal with because I've got a job to do."

Weymouth associate director William Ronald also resigned on Monday and the club, who are yet to indicate who will replace the pair, have already received an offer for the majority of shares from a consortium led by Weyline owner and club sponsor Ian Ferguson.

But, the offer was turned down because the amount was not enough to stabilise the club's ongoing financial problems.
