Weston are back at home again this weekend as they take on Metropolitan Police in the Southern League Premier South this Saturday, 18th March. The game kicks off at 3pm.
The Seagulls will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s 3-1 home defeat to Bracknell Town, in what was an entertaining game under the Optima Stadium lights. New signing, Olly Mehew, scored his third goal in three home games for his new side.
Our visitors, Met Police, play their third away game in seven days after their midweek trip to Plymouth Parkway and last Saturday’s journey to Poole Town. In those two games, Gavin Mcpherson’s side picked up a 1-0 victory at Parkway and a 1-1 draw against The Dolphins. It could have been even better for Met, but they were denied all three points in Dorset as Poole claimed an injury-time equaliser.
New signing, Liam Ferdinand, scored the only goal against Parkway in midweek to earn a vital three points as Met Police chase the play-off places. That was Ferdinand’s second goal in three games since rejoining from Farnborough.
This is the second time in just under a month that Weston and Met Police will have played each other, following the 0-0 draw at Imber Court in February. With this game in mind, and Met Police’s last two results on the road, another tight yet intriguing encounter would seem likely.
