WESTON VISIT BATH CITY IN SOMERSET PREMIER CUP CLASH

Weston are in midweek Somerset Premier Cup action as they visit Bath City this Tuesday, February 13th. The match at Twerton Park kicks off at 7:45pm.

Both clubs have a good pedigree in this local cup competition, with Bath City winning it a joint-record 25 times, the last of which came last May at the Optima Stadium.

A Romans side that included Max Harris, Opi Edwards, Rex Mannings and James Morton lifted the trophy after a 4-1 win over Paulton Rovers.

Weston have won the competition four times since their first ever final win in 2011, with the last final success coming in 2019 after a 2-1 victory over Taunton Town, in what was manager Scott Bartlett’s first competitive game in charge in his second spell in the Weston hotseat.

Prior to that, Weston also won the competition twelve months earlier in 2018 after a 3-2 extra-time win over the luckless Paulton at Badgers Hill, Frome. During the 2017-18 Somerset Premier Cup campaign, The Seagulls beat Bath in the semi-final in a thrilling 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory after an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Woodspring Stadium. One of the successful Weston penalty takers was current Romans’ full-back Danny Greenslade, before Weston keeper Liam Kingston made himself a hero by saving City’s final penalty to send Weston through to the final.

That last-four encounter was the last time that Weston and Bath faced each other in the Somerset Premier Cup.

This season, The Seagulls won 6-2 at Twerton Park in Vanarama National League South, before The Romans were victorious by one goal to nil in the return fixture in BS24. That 1-0 win has become a regular scoreline for Bath in recent weeks after also achieving identical results in the victories over Eastbourne Borough and Dartford.

Weston haven’t played competitively since the defeat at Slough Town on February 3rd, however The Seagulls’ squad were able to play a behind-closed-doors friendly with Portishead Town on the Optima 3G on Saturday to keep fit and sharp ahead of this game at Twerton Park and the upcoming league games.

If it is a draw after 90 minutes, the tie will go straight to penalties.
