Weston complete their pre-season fixture schedule as Yeovil Town visit The Optima Stadium this Saturday, July 30th, in a 3pm kick-off.
The Glovers head north up through Somerset having finished twelfth in last season’s National League.
They have a new man at the helm in Chris Hargreaves, who has also had spells in charge of Torquay United and the Bristol Rovers Academy. Hargreaves took over from Darren Sarll, who left the Huish Park hotseat for Woking.
Reuben Reid is set to appear against the side he has just departed from. Reid scored some important goals for The Glovers last season, before his move to BS24.
In their last friendlies of this pre-season, Weston were defeated 2-1 at Slimbridge, while Yeovil had to settle for a 0-0 draw at Dorchester Town.
As well as this season, Weston and Yeovil faced each other in a friendly seven days before the last league campaign started. The spoils were shared in a 1-1 draw that day. Dayle Grubb had given The Seagulls the lead but Tom Knowles equalised in the 80th minute.
With both sides kicking off their league seasons next Saturday, a competitive affair is likely as both sets of players look to seal their places in their respective starting line-ups.
