We are delighted to welcome Bath City to The Optima Stadium on Saturday 5th September, 3:00 PM KO.
After another win against Cinderford during the week, Weston are eager to continue their winning streak as they take on The Romans in the eighth pre-season game of the 20/21 season.
Bath City will make the hour journey as we once again welcome fans safely into The Optima Stadium.
The last home match for Weston saw tickets sell out as fans old and new showed their support in a 2-1 win over a Bristol City XI.
Talking about the fixture, Manager Scott Bartlett said:
It’s a game we are looking forward to and it’ll be another set of minutes ticked off in a busy week as we approach the start of the season.
“It’s a good game for us because Bath have finished in the playoffs for the last two seasons in the league above and it’ll be good to gauge where we are against a top team locally.
“Personally I have a lot of time for Jerry and Jim and am looking forward to welcoming them to The Optima tomorrow.”
