Weston Assistant Quits

Marc McGregor leaves Weston-Super-Mare to remove his wages from the club’s outgoings.

A club statement said:

“The Board have given Manager Craig Laird the budget for the 2014-15 season.

As stated at the Fans Forum in March, Club revenues have been falling almost in line with many businesses in this sector and this has had an impact on the finance the club can afford for players wages. Marc McGregor has spoken to Paul Bliss and Craig Laird and has decided to leave the Club to reduce the pressure on the wage bill.

Paul Bliss said ‘this is a most magnanimous gesture on Marc’s part and we thank him most sincerely for it. The Board wish to thank Marc for his brilliant services over the past two years, his support to Craig and, his long association with the Club. He will always be welcome at the Woodspring Stadium and we wish him every success in whatever he decides to do in the future.’

Craig is now talking to current players about next seasons’ squad.”


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
