WESTON BACK ON THE ROAD TO HEMEL HEMPSTEAD IN NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH

Weston are back in Vanarama National League South action as they head to Hemel Hempstead Town this Saturday, 17th February. The match kicks off at 3pm.

The Seagulls returned to winning ways on Tuesday following the 6-5 penalty shoot-out victory at Bath City in the quarter-final of the Somerset Premier Cup. After a 0-0 draw at Twerton Park; Dayle Grubb, Lloyd Humphries, Rex Mannings, Jamie Soule, Keiran Thomas and James Dodd all expertly dispatched their spot-kicks to send Weston through. Max Harris also performed heroics as he pushed away Jack Batten’s penalty as the shoot-out entered sudden-death.

Hemel Hempstead, nicknamed The Tudors, come into this game 13th in the table. In their previous game played last Saturday, Hemel picked up an excellent point away at Maidstone United, and had George Williams to thank after his last-minute equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

It was also one goal apiece at the Optima Stadium on August Bank Holiday Monday in the reverse fixture earlier in the season. Giuseppe Re gave The Tudors the lead with a well-executed volley in the first-half, before that man Dodd equalised after the interval with a fantastic finish of his own.

This is Weston’s first game back at Vauxhall Road since playing there in April 2019. Jacob Jagger Cane and Alex Bray were on the scoresheet in a 2-0 win on a red-hot Easter Monday afternoon.

Jagger Cane has enjoyed playing against The Tudors over the years, having become a frequent scorer against the Hertfordshire outfit.

There have been some absolute crackers at Vauxhall Road in recent times with a 5-0 win on the final day of the 2016/17 season and an incredible 5-5 draw in the previous campaign.

Hopefully there can be more entertainment in store this Saturday, but with The Seagulls coming out on top.
