SEAGULLS START FA TROPHY CAMPAIGN

Weston begin their Buildbase FA Trophy campaign in the 3rd Qualifying Round as they take on Taunton Town on Saturday 30th October, 3pm kick-off.

Weston come into this cup tie off the back of an excellent home victory against Chesham United. A Lloyd Humphries brace separated by a Prince Henry goal saw the Seagulls emerge 3-1 winners.

Saturday’s visitors most recently tasted defeat when they travelled to Hendon.

Scott Bartlett’s side will be looking to follow up on the last time these two sides met at the Optima when Weston knocked the Peacocks out of the FA Cup with a 5-1 victory.

Assistant Manager Scott Laird knows the importance of a cup run and said this:

”Every game we want to win whether that is a training game, friendly, league or cup.

“We have been too ‘yo-yo’ for our liking, we need to string some wins together. This is another chance to build.

“We have been working so hard even in our losses and I think the fans see that. What we now need to do is work hard and smart. The fans have been amazing and have stuck by us. Now it’s time for us to repay that.

“Our attendances are great and it gives us all a great boost when we hear that noise.“

KEY MATCHDAY INFORMATION

As a Club we wish to provide as free and safe environment as possible.

To that end we are retaining our safety processes, but they are now advisory, not mandatory.

PLEASE NOTE

Please note due to a room booking, originally made over a year ago and rearranged due to the Covid pandemic, unfortunately, there will be no access to the Somerset Suite Function Room at any time during Saturday 30 October 2021.

Considering this we will instead be allowing access through to the Sportsman bar from the ground, along with the usual Joe’s Bar availability.

It is worth noting that for a few minutes, prior to the match, at half time and at full time, no access will be granted to or from the Sportsman bar due to its entrance being within the Players access gated area.

We will be operating 2 turnstiles at our main Turnstile block next to the club shop.

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 both sets of supporters to The Optima Stadium for this highly anticipated cup tie and hope you have an enjoyable afternoon.
