Weston manager Marc McGregor said his side’s performance in Saturday’s 4-1 defeat was ‘unacceptable’, in an exclusive post-match interview with the Mercury.

The Seagulls were behind after just 54 seconds at The Woodspring Stadium and 3-0 down before the break after strikes from Jason Prior, Rory Williams and Theo Lewis.

In the second half, the home side got off to a blistering start when Jacob Cane hammered home, to give Weston hope.

But not long after, the Seagulls were cut open at the back and Williams added a fourth – putting the result beyond doubt.
