Midfielder Jacob Cane will lead Weston out at the Woodspring as Captain for the first time this weekend. The Seagulls play in the FA Trophy Round of 32 clash against Workington Town, with the visitors hoping to cause an upset against their National League South counterparts.
Weston enter this encounter in good form, aiming to progress to the last 16 in the FA Trophy, following four consecutive wins in all competitions since 16th December. The Seagulls have boosted their squad by the signing-on of Tom Llewellyn, who has signed first-team forms this week.
“We are looking forward to the game” Marc McGregor said ahead of the cup clash, “It’s a welcome distraction from the league at the moment. Our opposition are not to be under-estimated however. Doing so could leave us on the wrong side of the result.
“Although we are a league above, the size of each club is comparable, and they were in the Northern League not too long ago. I expect to see them promoted, they are very much the in-form team in their division, their management are clearly doing a great job.”
Workington will be looking to cause another upset in the Trophy after beating struggling National League side Hartlepool United, winning 1 – 0 in the last round. The Reds currently sit fourth in the Evo-Stik Northen Premier Division with 46 points from 27 games. Workington could be without goalkeeper Aaron Taylor, who is expecting the imminent arrival of his child, however winger Conor Tinnion returns to the squad for Workington’s first-ever fixture against Somerset opposition.FA
