Weston are back at the Optima Stadium again as they host Hanwell Town in another vital Southern League Premier South clash. The game kicks off at 3pm this Saturday, October 22nd.
Hanwell have started the season well and are currently fifth in the table after an excellent start in their first ever season at Step 3. The Middlesex side won promotion from the Isthmian League South Central Division, after beating Chertsey Town 3-2 in the play-off final.
Hanwell have clearly adapted well to their new division and since a 2-0 defeat at North Leigh on October 4, they have since picked up two very impressive victories on their home patch.
Firstly, Hayes & Yeading were beaten 3-2 in the midweek fixtures last week, before last Saturday’s 4-1 victory over Gosport Borough. Kain Adom scored in both games for Hanwell, and netted a brace in the Gosport win. Those wins over established Southern League Premier sides show what Hanwell are capable of this season.
Weston come into this fixture on the back of Tuesday’s rare defeat at home to Chesham United, the first league loss at the Optima for one year and two days.
The Seagulls will be looking to make the Optima a fortress once again as they play the second of four consecutive home games in the league.
