Another Weymouth player could be on his way to Kettering Town.

Current Terras boss Brendan King has revealed the club’s star striker Warren Byerley, who has scored 50 goals in the past two seasons, is in Kettering today to possibly seal a move to Nene Park.

George Rolls, who is now in charge on a day-to-day basis at the Poppies ahead of tomorrow’s creditors meeting in which a CVA could be given the go-ahead, was previously the chairman at Weymouth.

Byerley has already agreed terms with Weymouth for next season but he is now set to hear what Kettering have to offer.

King said: “We have offered Warren a new deal he is happy with and part of that was the cost of his recent knee operation.

“However, I have been speaking at length to him about it and he has told me he wants to see what Kettering are offering first before making any firm commitment.

“Playing full-time football and the money to match is obviously a big pull for any player and today he has gone up there to take a look around.

“Obviously, we cannot stand in the way of that but we will be doing all we can to keep him.

“We certainly do not want to lose him.”

It was reported earlier this summer that former Weymouth defender Ben Gerring is also heading to Kettering.

The two clubs could be rivals in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division next season.
