The St Peter FC winger, who has produced stand-out Muratti performances for Jersey’s representative side in recent seasons, has joined Gary Freeman’s men ahead of the club’s Cherry Red Records Premier Challenge Cup second-round clash away to Hanworth Villa – despite only being able to play mid-week games.

Weir has been unavailable for weekend matches for the best part of 2019 due to work commitments, but Freeman has sold him the Bulls dream.

Weir said: ‘I haven’t played much this season, because I work on a Saturday and that has been a problem with signing for the Bulls.

‘I didn’t think Gary would have an interest in signing me because of that, but he said I could get involved when needed.

‘I understand completely that I won’t be walking straight into the starting line-up, but hopefully I can help out when I played.’

Tonight’s opposition are just one place and one point off the bottom in Combined Counties League Premier – the division above the Bulls – with the bottom sides there not too dissimilar in ability to the top sides the Bulls face week in, week out.

Weir, who has also represented Parishes of Jersey FC in the last 12 months, believes his team-mates are better than the league they are currently in for their first taste of English football and the winger is relishing the chance to make his bow for the Island’s premier club side.

He added: ‘I know a lot of the lads who are in the team and in my opinion at the moment they are probably a lot better than the league.

‘I just want to help out where I can and I am looking forward to it.

‘I’ve been keeping myself fit so I just need to get my match sharpness up.

‘We’ve played in the Kent Cup and stuff with the club side, but this will be different.

‘I think playing against sides you don’t know always makes you better, and it is good to play different teams at different grounds.’
