Holding job is ludicrous, claims
By Adam Summers

GEORGE Rolls has described suggestions that he is merely
doing a holding job at the Bob Lucas Stadium to suit the needs
of developers Morgan Sindall as absolutely ludicrous.
With confusion off the pitch reigning supreme at Weymouth
over the last few weeks and recent results on it pushing the
club deeper into the mire in the Zamaretto Premier Division,
the Terras chairman has come under intense fire but
continues to stand defiant.
Commenting on this latest accusation against him, Rolls said:
That is absolutely ludicrous. I have not spoken to Morgan
Sindall for six or seven weeks now and Weymouth FC has no
other relationship with them other than the option agreement.
We will continue to try and work with them if they
can find a suitable site for a new stadium but as yet that
has not happened.
As for people suggesting that I am being paid to do
a job for them that is just crazy.
The majority shareholder has also been blasted over the confusion
surrounding Rob Wolleastons contract, which the FA has
no record of.
Refusing to shed any further light on the subject, Rolls
merely added: Rob has an agreement to be at the football
club until May 2012. It is all above board and both the player
and his agent know the situation.
Associate director Nigel Biddlecome was also asked for his
understanding of the deal and he said: Rob is under
contract for a certain sum of money and expenses, and as far
as I am concerned that runs until the end of next season.
Meanwhile, the Zamaretto Pre-mier Division has confirmed
that Wolleaston has been registered as a non-contract player
with them and therefore no rules have been broken with
One thing that is definitely clear is that Terras boss
Ian Hutch-inson is now under even more pressure to make cuts
and turnaround the clubs fortunes on the pitch, following
three successive losses that have plunged his side nine points
adrift of safety.
Rolls said: We have got to start winning games of football
and we have got to do it soon. How we do that is not my domain.
That is down to the manager. As for the budget, Ian knows
what he has got and it is up to him to make the necessary
Biddlecombe echoed those sentiments by adding: It is
up to the management team to balance the books and who stays
and who goes is down to them.
In other news, it appears shares are on offer at the club
for fans and potential investors to purchase.
Biddlcombe said: George has told me that he is not
looking to offload the club and that he is happy to sell shares
as long as he retains his 51 per cent majority shareholding.
He also said that all the proceeds will go to the club.
Rolls added: Just over 16 per cent of shares are available
and with some supporters looking to become more pro-active
at the club this is a chance for them to increase their shareholding.
