MATCH INFO: SEAGULLS HOST BRISTOL CITY XI

Weston look to continue their unbeaten pre-season run against Bristol City at The Optima Stadium on Saturday 24th July, KO 3pm.

After an excellent 4-2 win away at Clevedon Town, the Seagulls will be keen to continue their good run of form.

The opposition is likely to be a mixture of first-team and academy players. So far Bristol City have drawn both of their friendlies under the leadership of Nigel Pearson against Celtic and more recently Portsmouth while their U23 squad have won their only game played so far with a 3-0 victory over Paulton Rovers.

This match presents another vital opportunity for Weston to get minutes in their legs ahead of the approaching Southern League season commencing on August 14th away to Kings Langley.

The sides last met this time last year where the Seagulls emerged 2-1 victors with goals coming from Nick McCootie and Sam Avery.

CLUB SHOP

The Club Shop within The Optima Stadium will be open for all Weston-super-Mare AFC First team games.

PLAYER TUNNEL GATES

We may close these, for the players entry to the pitch and return from the pitch during their pre-match warm-up, there may be a slightly longer period before the game where these will have to remain closed.

We do apologise in advance for this. The Stewards will open them as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

MATCH FOOTBALLS

We do ask that supporters try not to throw balls back on to the pitch.

A Steward or Ball Person will instead make their way to your location, gather the football, and return to the Home Dugout so that it can be cleaned before going back on to the pitch.

When balls leave the pitch in this manner the Home Dugout will be throwing another ball on to the pitch for the continuation of the game. 

TRACK & TRACE

Before entering The Optima Stadium, we ask you to complete a Track & Trace system.

There are signs before entering the turnstiles and one in the turnstile. There is the recognised NHS App version system.

Additionally, for those unable to use the NHS App there is a simple QR scan code that you scan using your mobile telephone, click on the link it gives you and then complete your details.

This is recommended for every visit you make to The Optima Stadium.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

We do remind all supporters it is your responsibility to maintain [current UK Government] Social Distancing guidelines while you visit The Optima Stadium.

This includes all areas of the ground, inside and out, along with the seated areas.

FIND THE OPTIMA

Leave the M5 at Junction 21 and take the A370 towards Weston town centre. Continue across three roundabouts and at the 4th (where there is a McDonalds) turn left into Winterstoke Road. Go straight across the mini roundabout, over a railway bridge and you will see the ground on your right hand side.

Check up on the pre-match build up and keep up to date with all the action from the match with our live twitter updates – @WSM_AFCOfficial.

We look forward to welcoming fans of both teams to the Optima Stadium for what is set to be an excellent game.
