BRETT Williams has parted company with the Terras after just one season at the club.

The forward has taken up an academy coaching role at AFC Totton. He also joins the Southern League South Division 1 club as a player.

Brett will also be working with the community in the schools with a view to linking them to the club.

Williams signed for Weymouth in June 2019. An experienced striker, he had previously played for Eastleigh, Aldershot Town, Stevenage, Forest Green Rovers, and Torquay United. Williams made 33 appearances for the club over the course of the 2019/20 season, scoring 11 goals. His final goal for the Terras came in the 4-2 Dorset Senior Cup final victory against Dorchester Town.

In a short statement on Twitter, he said his stay at Weymouth was "short and sweet" but that he loved his time at the club: "Great bunch of lads and the manager was alright as well," he joked.

"Very excited about my next journey. To all the fans you have been incredible and you have a lot to look forward to with this team. Thank you."

Manager Mark Molesley has this to say on the attacker's departure: "Where Brett is now in his life and with his family, this opportunity was too good for him to turn down.

"He lives up that way he’s at the stage of his career where he needs to think about things.

"He is a firm favourite in the dressing room and someone that always gave 100%, he will he missed by all. We wish Brett well in this new role at Totton."
