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.
