Weston play the final game of a splendid season as they head to Salisbury this Saturday, April 22nd. The match kicks off at 3pm.
The Southern League Premier South champions make the journey to Wiltshire in a wonderful mood after clinching the championship following Tuesday night’s 4-1 victory over Hendon at the Optima Stadium.
The Seagulls attacked The Greens from the first whistle and led early on as Marlon Jackson and Jason Pope put the home side two-nil up. Dave Diedhiou pulled a goal back just after the interval, before Jackson added two more to take his tally of goals to 19 for the season.
That memorable win paved the way for a night of celebrations as The Seagulls sealed their first title since winning the Western League in 1991/92, and their first promotion since finishing as runners-up in the Southern League Division One West in 2002/03.
One of those victories for Scott Bartlett’s side this season was in the previous encounter between Weston and Salisbury on November 5, as he led his team to a 3-1 win after goals from Scott Laird, Jackson and Dayle Grubb’s penalty. The Seagulls’ manager will return to his home town this Saturday and face the club for whom he made over 400 appearances.
In Salisbury’s last game, played on Wednesday evening, The Whites travelled down to Bolitho Park and lost by four goals to nil at Truro City, so Brian Dutton’s side will be looking to finish their season on a more positive note.
Weston, of course, will arrive in Wiltshire in a buoyant mood following the excitement and drama of Tuesday’s promotion to National League South, and will be backed by a large following from the Seagull Army, in what should be an enjoyable day for all connected with Weston-super-Mare AFC.
