WESTON TAKE ON THE WHITE TIGERS IN NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH

Weston are back in Vanarama National League South action as they host Truro City at the Optima Stadium this Saturday, December 16th. The match kicks off at 3pm.

Following Tuesday’s thrilling FA Trophy victory over Woking, The Seagulls will be looking to extend their winning streak. In midweek, Weston found themselves two-nil down but staged a fantastic second-half display with goals from Rex Mannings and a brace from Dayle Grubb, with his winner coming in the 90th minute from the penalty spot.

That win over National League Woking sent Weston through to the Fourth Round of the FA Trophy for only the third time in their history, and the first time in twenty years.

The Seagulls and the White Tigers have already played each other twice this season, both in the space of a week back in September. In an FA Cup Second Qualifying Round tie at the Optima, Weston won 2-0 after first-half goals from Mannings and Marlon Jackson. Then seven days later, in National League South, a Keiran Thomas thunderbolt late in the game earned Scott Bartlett’s side the three points at Bolitho Park.

As well as a terrific goal to earn the win, on-loan goalkeeper Harry Lee made some excellent saves to keep a dangerous Truro attack at bay.

In the White Tigers’ last outing, they were narrowly defeated by two goals to one at Maidstone United, but before that they picked up excellent wins over St Albans and Chelmsford to demonstrate what a dangerous side they are.

The Cornish outfit have also been boosted by the recent news that they will be playing their home games back in the city of Truro at the start of the 2024/25 season.

With both clubs in a good place right now, another intriguing clash with The White Tigers awaits.
