Laird Departs Weston

WestonBadgeFollowing Marc McGregor’s decision to quit as Weston-Super-Mare’s assistant manager to reduce the club’s outgoings, Craig Laird has resigned as manager at Woodspring Stadium.

A club statement read:

“We are very disappointed to be informed by Craig Laird that he has resigned as First Team Coach. The Board felt that Craig was the right person to take the club forward on the pitch.

“We have explained to Craig the reasons that have led to us having to reduce our playing budget for the coming season. At the same time, we explained that our current circumstances are looking better regarding developing the club and that we would be in a position to progress to the Conference Premier in the 2015-16 season.

“Despite having spent considerable time explaining the rationale behind the decisions, it is therefore a regret to recieve Craig’s resignation.

“We would like to thank Craig for all the work he has done in producing excellent results on the pitch.”

Laird had resigned once already during the season, quitting back in March over budget disagreements. This time, it looks as though the four year love affair has ended for good.




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!
