Somerset here we come

6 months ago By Paul Armstrong

All roads lead to Woodspring Park this weekend as Reds meet Weston-super-Mare in the Second Round of the FA Trophy.

It will be a first ever game against Somerset opposition and, in this case, a team currently doing well in National League South. The Seagulls are ninth in their division, just on the fringe of the play-offs, having obtained 36 points from their twenty four games.
They go into the Trophy tie having won their three most recent league fixtures with a win at Chesham United in the First Round prior to that.

Lee Andrews has endured a nervous week before naming his team, with goalkeeper Aaran Taylor a doubt due to the imminent arrival of his second child. His good lady is overdue but the waiting game continues.

Conor Tinnion returns to the squad after missing the New Year’s Day fixture.

Reds are one of four Evo-Stik League survivors in the Trophy and all face tough away games and long journeys. Stourbridge go to Billericay Town (156 miles), Warrington Town travel to Ebbsfleet United (216) and Marine face Dover Athletic (297). Workington’s players and supporters face a 311 mile trek and only Bromley (314) will travel further in this round of the competition as they head for Blyth Spartans.

The team coach will leave on Friday afternoon and hope to arrive at their Bristol hotel about 10pm. A supporters’ coach will set off from Workington at 5am on Saturday morning.

£8 – concession

£3 - U16s

£20 – family ticket (2 adults, and 2 U16s)

Postcode: BS24 9AA (Leave the M5 at J21)
