Weston are on the road again in their latest pre-season friendly, although it’s a very short journey up the M5 to our North Somerset neighbours, Clevedon Town. The game at the Everyone Active Stadium kicks off at 7:30pm this Tuesday evening, July 19th.
Clevedon manager Alex White, who took over from ex-Weston boss Mickey Bell, steered his Clevedon side to a seventh placed finish in last season’s Western League Premier Division. The Seasiders will be looking to improve on this further in the season ahead.
In their last pre-season game, they lost at home to a Bristol City Academy side on Saturday.
In that game with the young Robins, ex-Weston players Syd Camper and Callum Eastwood featured for Clevedon. Another player facing his former side in Tuesday’s fixture will be our very own Jay Murray, who has been looking extremely sharp in pre-season for The Seagulls so far.
Weston fans will fondly remember two particular victories at The Hand Stadium. In 2012; Weston, managed by Craig Laird at the time, beat Clevedon 2-1 to claim the Somerset Premier Cup. Nine years earlier, a Jody Bevan goal clinched a 1-0 win over their local rivals to see Frank Gregan’s men seal promotion from the Dr Martens Western Division.
