After three campaigns in the Conference, Weymouth went down in 2009 against the backdrop of off-field financial difficulties. It wasn’t until the last day of the season that relegation was confirmed, however; Northwich Victoria pipping them to survival at the post. It looks a lot worse when you realise the Vics were 20+ points behind the Terras when the first-team and senior figures left the club.
Weymouth: The Facts
Bob Lucas Stadium
Radipole Lane, Weymouth, Dorset, DT4 9XJ
It’s a fair old trip down to Weymouth for Boro’ fans. But, it is after all, a trip to the seaside. From Stevenage, head down the A1(M), onto the M25 and round to the M3. The first few stages are simple. Travel south on the M3 until you reach the M27 and head westbound.
When the M27 ends, continue along the A31 past Ringwood and Wimborne Minster until you come to Bere Regis. Here, take the westbound A35 towards Dorchester. Then, when you spot Dorchester Town‘s ground, head south on the A354 towards Weymouth.
Stay on the A354 as you come to the outskirts of Weymouth. You don’t need to do much until you get to Chafeys Roundabout, at which point you want the third exit for the B3157 Granby Way. At the next roundabout, take the third exit again; the stadium is on the left.
The stadium has its own car park and you can use it. We think there’s a charge – but we aren’t sure how much. It was £2 last time we checked. But that was a while ago. If you’re thinking about local street parking, the area around the ground is likely to be patrolled by traffic wardens if the yellow cones are out.

At almost two miles, you can hike it if you really want. Do you really want? OK. Here’s how to do it. Leave the station and go south east on Ranelagh Road towards Queen Street. It’s then right and right again to get onto King Street. With KFC in front of you, swing around it on the right into Radipole Park Drive and then cross the road.
Head into the car park for the RSPB reserve and take a right. This is where the walk gets a bit scenic. Loop round to the left so that you’re making tracks for the main road. Go right at the road and head up to the roundabout. Here, cross Goldcroft Road and take exit two. This is Granby Way. At the next roundabout, you’ll see the ground and know where to go.
