NORTHMORE HAPPY TO BE HOME

After over a month on the road, the Seagulls return to the Woodspring Stadium on Saturday afternoon to take on Concord Rangers in the National League South, and Weston boss Ryan Northmore is hopeful that his side can reproduce their recent away form on home turf.

“We have been on the road for seven games and our travelling support has been great”, said Northmore.

“I think it is long overdue that we play at home and I want us to do so with the same confidence and purpose as we have done during October.”

The Seagulls had a strong October, winning three out of five games, most recently overcoming FA Cup heartbreak to down high-flying Whitehawk in Sussex, which has seen Weston climb from the foot of the table and narrow the gap to Saturday’s opponents.

The Beach Boys have fallen off following a positive start to the campaign, including an opening day win over Weston, now sitting in 17th spot – 3 points and places ahead of the Seagulls.

Ahead of the game, Weston’s stand-in skipper Jamie Edge remarked “Concord are very well organised, physically strong team with threats up front.

“It will be a very tough game today but we feel we did not give a true showing of ourselves when we played them on the opening day of the season so we are looking forward to trying to put that result right”, said Edge.

Defensive stalwart Clayton Fortune will be available to the Seagulls this Saturday, with an upcoming three-match ban not starting until next weekend.

Weston’s boss, Ryan Northmore concluded, “We have been playing with real spirit and nothing would be more pleasing than to see more of the same on Saturday.”
