Weymouth officials have thanked fans for helping to beat the coronavirus by staying away from the Bob Lucas Stadium for their play-off semi-final victory over Dorking Wanderers.
The Terras released a statement on Wednesday praising supporters for sticking to social distancing guidelines on Saturday and staying home to watch their dramatic 3-2 win on BT Sport.
The promotion hopefuls – who host Dartford on Saturday in the National League South final – are asking supporters to do the same again for the 1pm kick-off.
The Terras said: “Weymouth Football Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters for obeying the government guidance and for following Saturday’s playoff semi-final victory over Dorking Wanderers away from the Bob Lucas Stadium.

“We are, of course, disappointed that we could not share the occasion with you in person and look forward to a day when crowds can return to the Bob Lucas Stadium.
“We were extremely pleased that there were no reports of supporters attempting to enter the grounds surrounding the stadium. Thank you from everybody at the club; the players, management team, staff and our COVID officer.
“We hope everybody enjoyed the game wherever you were following it. It was great to see so many photos and videos of fans supporting the Terras from home and local bars.
“Your support really does mean so much and we are asking that you can support us in the exactly the same way for our playoff final against Dartford this Saturday afternoon. As a reminder, this game is now a 1 pm kick-off.”
