SEAGULLS BID FOR CUP FINAL PLACE

Weston will take to the pitch this evening against league rivals Bath City, in their third meeting this season, in the Somerset Cup semi-final.

To get to the semi-final stage, Weston have surpassed three sides from leagues below, brushing aside Brislington, Taunton Town and Wincanton Town, scoring 12 goals and conceding none in the tournament so far. With Gethyn Hill departing the stadium on crutches after Saturday’s game, it looks like his season may well be over, so Jake Lee will look to stake a claim on the No.9 shirt, starting on Tuesday, with Liam Kingston, George Morris-Edwards, Ash Kington and Jamie Laird also potentially in with a chance of starting, as they have done in previous rounds.

In their quest for a cup final themselves, Bath have overcome Cheddar FC 1 – 2, Keynsham Town 0 – 1 and Welton Rovers 8 – 1 to set up this semi-final clash. The Romans are still chasing the National League South playoff places, so their team may feature more squad players than are seen on Saturdays in the league, with the likes of Oaklan Buck and Kieran Hodges possibly getting a run-out on Tuesday night to try and prevent the Seagulls from claiming a third win over their North Somerset rivals in 2017/2018 under Marc McGregor.

Rob Boyd spoke ahead of the fixture, “I think it is good for the squad and the supporters to be involved in a semi-final. Should be progress beyond this match it will give everyone, both with the club and the supporters a decent end to the season, and it will be an evening to look forward to.”

 

Tickets will be available for purchase for the End Of Season Awards Night, to be held on Saturday 28th April, from the bar at this evenings game, priced at £15 per person.
