Midfielder Dean Evans set for Weymouth exit

MIDFIELDER Dean Evans is understood to be the first player to confirm his exit from the Bob Lucas Stadium this summer.

The former Paulton Rovers man, who joined the club in February 2015, announced his departure via social media this afternoon.

A post on Evans’ Twitter feed read: “Would like to thank the fans, players and management of Weymouth for a great two-and-a-bit seasons, but I’ll be moving on next season.

“Great support, top lads and a brilliant club.

“Big thanks to Jase (Matthews, former manager) for giving me the opportunity and all the best to Mose (Mark Molesley, manager) and Paul (Maitland, assistant) and the players for next season.”

Evans scooped a hat-trick of club awards at the Terras’ end-of-season presentation last season.
