WESTON TAKE ON TAUNTON IN GOOD FRIDAY SOMERSET DERBY

Weston are back in Vanarama National League South action at the Optima Stadium as they take on Taunton Town in a Somerset derby this Good Friday, 29th March. The match kicks off at 3pm.

The game comes less than 72 hours since Tuesday’s 3-0 defeat to Farnborough at the Optima, in what has been an extremely busy schedule for The Seagulls.

Taunton were due to play Slough Town on Monday night, but that game was postponed. The Peacocks’ last game, therefore, was last Saturday’s unlucky 3-2 defeat at home to Chelmsford City. Taunton had led 2-0 through Zac Bell and Nick Grimes, but they were left in despair as The Clarets reduced the arrears before going on to win the match after two goals in second-half injury-time.

Ex-Weston pair Lloyd Irish and Ross Stearn played in the Chelmsford game, and could well line up against their former employers on Friday.

Rob Dray’s side come into this game 21st in the National League South table, just inside the relegation zone. However, The Peacocks have quite a few games in hand over the teams around them. Taunton can also point towards excellent recent wins at Worthing and Torquay United to anyone doubting their ability to stay up.

With Weston looking to get back to winning ways, and Taunton looking for points to get out of the bottom four, it has all the makings of an excellent Somerset derby to kick off the Easter weekend.
