This comes just two days after former head coach Scott Bartlett announced his departure from The Woodspring Stadium.

McGregor said he was delighted to take the job when asked and says the players are ‘excited’ by his appointment’.

He said: “I have spoken to all the players both contract and non contract and they are stimulated and excited by my appointment. Weston is a great club to come to and do well. The players want to stay and have given me their full support. The philosophy of playing good football at the club will continue under my leadership as this stimulates players to enjoy their football and play well.

“The club have shown faith in me and I am happy to come back – this Club has a special place in my heart like no other could.

“I want to make sure that the ‘team’ includes everyone from the bar and stewarding staff through to the board of directors. The board have backed me and I will return that faith. We may need to add to the depth of the squad and I have talked to the players about this.

“I am very pleased to be back and catch up with everyone.”
