Weston return to pre-season action as League Two side Newport County visit the Optima Stadium on Friday evening; July 15th, 7:30pm ko.
A large crowd attended the previous home friendly against Exeter City and another big turnout is expected. The Exiles have always brought large numbers of supporters to BS24 in friendly and Conference South fixtures down the years.
We will warmly welcome back County striker James Waite after he had two successful loan spells with Weston in both the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons. The young Welshman is already in goalscoring form this pre-season, as well as finding the net in the Football League after goals against Bristol Rovers and Crawley Town at Rodney Parade last season.
For Weston, it’s another opportunity to build up fitness and momentum ahead of the league campaign. After scoring 14 goals without reply and playing extremely well in the last two friendly fixtures, there are real signs of encouragement for the season ahead. However; Newport will, of course, provide a much sterner test.
