SEAGULLS START FA CUP JOURNEY

The Seagulls start their 2021/22 FA Cup adventure against Flackwell Heath at The Optima Stadium on Saturday 4th September, 3pm kick off.

Weston come into this cup tie off the back of 5 league games that include 2 wins and a draw. Last time out, Weston were held by Tiverton Town with goals from McCootie and Laird not quite enough as the Seagulls sit 10th after 5 games.

Flackwell Heath have already started their FA Cup campaign this season with 2 ties against Cadbury Heath and Tuffley Rovers. Flackwell saw off Cadbury Heath but against Tuffley they needed a replay. The first fixture finished 2-2 but Flackwell made sure there was no doubt in the replay and completed a convincing 6-0 win.

Flackwell play their league football in the Spartan South-Midlands Premier Division and currently sit 18th place after playing 3 games.

The Seagulls last met Flackwell Heath in an FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round game in 2014 when Weston ran out 4-1 winners. This was the same campaign that saw Weston reach the 1st Round Proper and face off against League 1 Doncaster Rovers.

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 all supporters for the start of what will hopefully be a successful FA Cup campaign for the Seagulls.
