We are delighted to welcome Yeovil Town to The Optima Stadium on Tuesday 8th September, 7:00 PM KO.
Weston take on Yeovil this week after drawing 0-0 with Bath City on Saturday. With only two pre-season matches left, The Seagulls are hoping to add to the 19 goals they’ve scored over the last eight games.
Yeovil will travel an hour from Huish Park to join us at The Optima Stadium as we welcome fans on a Tuesday evening for the first time this season.
Tickets still available to purchase for the two remaining pre-season matches.
Manager Scott Bartlett said:
It’s another game we are looking forward to. They had a terrific season last year and I think they would have gone up automatically before Coronavirus came into play.
“Lairdy knows Darren Sarll well and we both worked with Lee Collins and Rhys Murphy at FGR, we look forward to welcoming them.
“I thought we were good on Saturday and although Bath had some good moments in the game, I thought we dominated and were the better team.
“They had some excellent players in midfield particularly league experience with Frankie Artus, Ryan Harley and Lloyd James with Tom Smith complimenting them.
“They are experienced and will be strong but I thought we dominated that area on Saturday which was pleasing.”
