Weekend preview: Bassett aim for Robins double

Wednesday 22nd November 2023

Royal Wootton Bassett Town's senior sides all hit the road this weekend with trips to Somerset, Herefordshire and south Wiltshire.

Sunday sees Bassett travel to take on Frome Town in the South West Regional Women's Football League Division One Eastern (2pm kick off).

And, returning to action after a weekend off, Adam Wood and his side will be aiming to seal a season double over their opponents after Bassett recorded an emphatic 5-1 win against Frome when they met at the Sustain Stadium in September.

Prior to that, Saturday sees the Men's First Team visit Westfields in the Hellenic League Premier Division (3pm kick off).

Although underachieving in the league this season, Westfields still represent tough opposition. And Bassett have typically struggled when playing them, losing four of six previous league meetings. However, Sam Collier and his team did win away at Westfields last season courtesy of Matt Bennett's solitary goal with the teams drawing 1-1 in Wiltshire.

The Development team, meanwhile, are in Fountains Trophies Senior Cup third round action away at Ludgershall Sports (2pm kick off).

Mark Simpkins' team will be seeking to book a place in the quarter finals and will go into the match confident of doing so having won 4-1 in their September league meeting.
