SEAGULLS LOOK TO BUILD ON POSITIVE START

Scott Bartlett’s side will be looking to build on the excellent start to the Southern League season and will be aiming to make it 3 wins from 3 when they take on Gosport Borough on Saturday 21st August, 3pm kick-off at the Optima Stadium.

The Seagulls have started the season with back to back wins against Kings Langley and most recently a 3-1 triumph at home to Merthyr Town. Goals from Avery, Grubb and Laird were enough for Weston to grab a well deserved 3 points.

Gosport opened the season with an entertaining 4-3 win at home to Poole Town with 2 goals coming in stoppage time to snatch all 3 points. More recently, a disappointing 1-0 loss away to Walton Casuals left them with 3 points after the first two games.

Gosport have played their football at Southern League level since the 2017-18 season after relegation from the National League South in 2016-17. In the two recently curtailed seasons they finished the season in 8th and 11th respectively and will be looking to build on that this season.

Scott Laird said:

It’s been a good start since pre-season but that has been because we are working hard for each other and doing the hard and nitty gritty stuff.

“To be successful that is the minimum the gaffer and I expect and the minimum the fans expect.

“There is a good feel about the place and we just need to build on that.”

CLUB SHOP

The Club Shop within The Optima Stadium will be open for all Weston-super-Mare AFC First Team games.

PLAYER TUNNEL GATES

We may close these, for the players’ entry to the pitch and return from the pitch during their pre-match warm-up, there may be a slightly longer period before the game where these will have to remain closed.

We do apologise in advance for this. The Stewards will open them as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

MATCH FOOTBALLS

We do ask that supporters try not to throw balls back on to the pitch.

A Steward or Ball Person will instead make their way to your location, gather the football, and return to the Home Dugout so that it can be cleaned before going back on to the pitch.

When balls leave the pitch in this manner, the Home Dugout will be throwing another ball on to the pitch for the continuation of the game.

TRACK & TRACE

Before entering The Optima Stadium, we ask you to complete a Track & Trace system.

There are signs before entering the turnstiles and one in the turnstile. There is the recognised NHS App version system.

Additionally, for those unable to use the NHS App there is a simple QR scan code that you scan using your mobile telephone, click on the link it gives you and then complete your details.

This is recommended for every visit you make to The Optima Stadium.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

We do remind all supporters it is your responsibility to maintain current UK Government Social Distancing guidelines while you visit The Optima Stadium.

This includes all areas of the ground, inside and out, along with the seated areas.

Check up on the pre-match build up and keep up to date with all the action from the match with our live twitter updates – @WSM_AFCOfficial.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Optima for the second home game in a run of four consecutive home fixtures for the Seagulls with Met Police and Tiverton still to come.
