As Corporal Jones would say...

Strewth!
There are still six weeks to go before the opening game.
Lots of players will be in Magaluf, Ayia Napa or Temple Bar on p*** ups and will take time to decide where they'll be next season.
Upheaval was to be expected, whether or not Mr. McCann & Co. departed.
The new manager has fair connections and some knowledge of the Southern Premier... which does not look a strong league. If Weymouth don't hack-up, questions should be asked on Portland Bill.
Some years ago, I resided in a town where the local club suffered a seemingly catastrophic relegation. They held their budget at the lower level but narrowly failed to get back up.
Cue budget cuts and mass exodus. Including the manager.
Six players turned up on the first day of pre-season. Including a thug of a #9, who once served a lengthy ban for attempting to strangle a ref in a youth game and who still holds the record for being sent off most times in the Football League (13) and possibly for red cards in a senior career (22!).
Said thug was appointed manager. 10 months later, title and principal knock-out competition had been won.
Don't panic.
