He told the club’s official website: “I am delighted to have re-signed for Terras in what I believe will be my fourth season with the club.

“But my focus is firmly on this coming season and I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead of us.

“Work has already started and the boys look lively and working hard in training. Can’t wait to see you all again soon!”

Murray’s thoughts were echoed by boss David Oldfield, who said: “We are delighted Cameron has re-signed.

“He was a very important part of the squad last season, very hardworking and committed to the cause of Weymouth FC.

“He has a lot of quality and a huge amount of energy and good quality on and off the ball which can still have the potential to improve further and we are very happy to be working with him next season.”

Meanwhile, Nippard joins Weymouth for a second spell after featuring twice for Terras under former boss Mark Molesley.

Nippard, 21, was released by Bournemouth earlier this summer but has previous experience with Poole and Eastbourne.

Oldfield added: “We welcome Luke to club football, he is a player who has huge potential and did well at this level last season.

“He had a good upbringing at Bournemouth and has the character and qualities to succeed with us and we hope that together we can fulfill our potential.”

Murray and Nippard are the fifth and sixth confirmed signings behind Tom Bearwish, Tom Blair, Ahkeem Rose and Xander McBurnie.
