THE SEAGULLS MEET THE REBELS IN OPTIMA RETURN

After two games on the road, Weston are back at the Optima Stadium as they take on Slough Town this Saturday, 19th August. The Vanarama National League South fixture kicks off at 3pm.

In the most recent of those away games, The Seagulls ran out 6-2 winners against Bath City after an incredible evening at Twerton Park. Dayle Grubb, Jordan Bastin, Marlon Jackson, Rex Mannings and Keiran Thomas all got themselves on the scoresheet on a memorable night for the club.

Slough Town also played in midweek and were on the receiving end of a 4-1 defeat at home to Worthing, with Leon Parillon scoring a consolation goal for The Rebels. Slough will head to BS24 looking for their first points of the season after earlier defeats where they lost 2-1 at home to Dover Athletic, and a defeat by the same scoreline at Maidstone United on the opening day.

In the defeat to Dover, new signing Nathan Minhas scored for Slough. He signed in the summer from Beaconsfield Town where he was a prolific scorer, and he scored twice for The Rams against Weston last season, making him one of many attacking threats to be wary of should he line up against The Seagulls.

Slough are managed by Scott Davies, who is registered as their player/manager. The ex-Bristol Rovers midfielder has started in all three league games thus far, and may well select himself again.

This is the first time The Seagulls and The Rebels have met since January 26th, 2019, when Weston emerged as 2-0 winners at the Woodspring Stadium after second-half goals from Jacob Jagger Cane and Jackson. This was The Seagulls’ first home win of that particular season, with plenty of credit going to Luke Purnell for making several fantastic saves to deny the Berkshire outfit that day.
