Morgan eyes a Wessex return

STUART Morgan wants to return to the Terras hot-seat for a third time.

The former Dorchester boss, who has already enjoyed two successful spells at Weymouth, today confirmed his interest in returning to the Wessex Stadium.

Morgan, who left his chief scout job at Portsmouth five weeks ago following Harry Redknapp’s move to Southampton, told Echosport today: “I’m definitely interested in the position and I have spoken to Weymouth’s directors and told them.

“The fact I’ve been there twice before makes no difference. If anything I am a bit wiser and I really fancy getting my teeth stuck into the challenge.

I’ve never fallen out with the club or its fans.

I’ve always fancied going back but when the job has come up in recent years I’ve been employed elsewhere.

But this time I’m free to apply and that’s what I’ve done.”

Morgan’s record with the Terras is impressive and he came within a whisker of leading them into the Football League back in the 80s.

“My record at Weymouth is good,” he said. “We finished second in the Conference one year and we were top before things went wrong in our first year at the Wessex Stadium and we were forced to play a home game at Bournemouth because the ground was unfit due to drainage problems.

Another man who has expressed an interest in the position is ex-Dagenham and Hornchurch boss Gary Hill while the Terras are also believed to be interested in Lewes number one Steve King.
