WESTON WELCOME WEYMOUTH IN BOXING DAY CLASH

Weston play their final game of a memorable 2023 as they host Weymouth in Vanarama National League South. The Boxing Day clash at the Optima Stadium kicks off at 3pm. 

The Seagulls face The Terras in the first of two consecutive games against each other, with the return fixture in Dorset taking place on New Year’s Day.

Weston can count themselves unlucky to have returned home from Hampton & Richmond empty-handed following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat in South West London. Rex Mannings scored an excellent equaliser for The Seagulls with a well-executed volley, as the former Frome Town man continues to impress.

Weymouth, managed by former Hungerford, Wealdstone and Bracknell manager Bobby Wilkinson, were also in action on Saturday as they were at home to Dover Athletic. Forward Brandon Goodship gave The Terras a first-half lead, but Weymouth had to settle for a point after the Kent side fought back and equalised in the second-half.

This Boxing Day fixture will be the first time in over 14 years since Weston last hosted Weymouth in a league fixture. In August 2009, The Seagulls ran out 3-0 winners against The Terras at the Woodspring Stadium after a first-half goal from Clayton Fortune and a late second-half brace from Marc McGregor, who went on to manage Weston several years later.

As for this Tuesday’s clash, hopefully a large festive crowd will be in attendance to support Scott Bartlett’s side as they hope to finish the year on a high.
