Weymouth FC Manager Shown The Red Card

Groves & King

8:14am 13th December 2013

Weymouth Football Club have shown the red card to Manager Brendon King and Assistant Manager Matt Groves.

The pair have been sacked after a run of poor results.

Goalkeeper Jason Matthews will take care of the Terra's this weekend - and while they advertise for a new management team.

Here's the full statement from the club:
"Manager Brendon King and Assistant Manager Matt Groves have been relieved of their duties at Weymouth Football Club, following the recent run of poor results.

Experienced goalkeeper, Jason Matthews, will become Caretaker Manager and will be assisted by Micky Greeno, Jake Richmond, Paul Maitland and Rex Buttle at Saturday's fixture with Banbury.

Weymouth Football Club will advertise for a new manager and - with Matthews agreeing to a short term arrangement - will take advantage of the time to ensure that the right person is appointed to the manager's seat.

On behalf of the Board and supporters of the club I want to express our gratitude to Brendon and Matt for their efforts, often in difficult circumstances.

We wish them both well for the future."
