Brightlingsea Regent travel to Soham Town Rangers tomorrow for their 30th league game of the season. After Tilbury and AFC Hornchurch drew 0-0 midweek, Regent have now slipped to 7th place in the table but sit still two points outside the play offs. With four of the top five meeting each other this weekend it will be another important set of fixtures for the R's.
The two sides have already met twice this season with Regent knocking Soham out of the Alan Turvey Cup with a 3-0 win at Soham before winning the home league game at North Road also 3-0. The second game was on the eve of the departure of Soham Manager Steve Fallon and since his departure the joint Management of David Theobald and Robbie Nightingale has seen the club move comfortably away from the relegation positions and they now occupy 16th place with 31 points from their 31 games some 11 points outside the relegation places. Since the new Management the Soham team have made a number of new signings and most notably the former Manchester United player Luke Chadwick. The Soham Town Rangers go in to the game tomorrow with a record of won 1, drawn two and lost 2 in their last 5 whilst Regent have a record of won 4 and drawn 1 in their last 5. Soham lost narrowly 2-1away at promotion chasing AFC Hornchurch last Saturday whilst the Regent boys were recording a 3-2 home win against Cheshunt. The game kicks off at 3pm tomorrow and for travelling supporters the address is:
Julius Martin Lane
The 21's welcome Lowestoft Town Reserves to North Road tomorrow for their 18th league game of the season. Regent currently 7th in the table whilst their visitors tomorrow are 14th. Regent had an impressive 3-1 away win at previous league leaders Witham Town who slipped to 2nd following the defeat whilst the visitors have not been in action since a 5-2 away defeat at Felixstowe & Walton United Reserves. This game is also a 3pm kick off.
The A team are without a game tomorrow due to the Border League Representative side facing their quarter-final cup tie at home to the Spartan South Midlands League.
Come and support the Regent this weekend.
