Weymouth Match Preview

On Saturday Cirencester Town entertain Weymouth who currently occupy one of the relegation places in the Zamaretto Premier Division. Having lost 1-0 away at Weymouth back in October to a 75th minute penalty the Centurions will be looking for revenge.

 

Its been well documented the problems Weymouth have had over the last few years being relegated twice in succession and having the handicap of a ten point deduction at the start of this season. It’s been another season of struggle but they still have a fantastic supporter’s base with their average home crowd this season being 553 with a highest of 837 and a lowest of 271. Martyn Rogers who had many successful years as manager of Zamaretto Premier Division side Tiverton Town where he was in charge for over 1000 games has recently taken over as Manager with a view to keeping the team up. Rogers has used his contact book well bringing in a few players on both a permanent and loan basis.

 

One such player is James Nortei who is a Hartpury College student and who also trains with our near neighbours Forest Green Rovers. What James lacks in height he certainly makes up for it in agility and he produced a number of fine saves in their last game against Chippenham Town on Saturday.

 

Despite their lowly position in the league table they have within their ranks a striker with 15 league goals to his name in the shape of former Dorchester Town front runner Warren Byerley so the Cirencester backline will have to be on their toes to keep him at bay.

 

Weymouth come into the game having won 1, drew 2 and lost 3 of their last six games though can count themselves unfortunate not to have picked up a point against Chippenham as they conceded the only goal of the game in the 96th minute!

 

 

Brian Hughes team will be looking to finish the last 6 league games in a positive manner to take them into next season with confidence. Coming into the game with the same record as Weymouth over the last six games having won 1, drew 2 and lost 3 they will be hoping for better luck in front of goal having missed many chances to claim the points over Hednesford last week.

 

Centre half and captain Lyndon Tompkins is hoping to have recovered from a nasal virus which caused him to miss the Hednesford game and trained on Tuesday night. Tompkins will be hoping to regain his place in the back line which was well marshalled by Matt Sysum alongside fellow defenders Zak Westlake, Sean Wood and Richard Mansell who kept potent Hednesford strike duo Nick Wellecomme and Kyle Patterson quiet all game.

 

Young development team midfielder Ellis Dunton who was making his full first team debut and secured the “Four Pillars” Man of the Match award presented by match day sponsors “The Wilts & Gloucester Standard” and he will be hoping to retain his place in the starting line up.

 

Justin Mckay missed training on Tuesday night due to having a tooth removed but should take his place in the squad. Still missing through suspension will be Jamie Reid and Tom Etheridge.
