Weekend preview: Bassett seek Westfields double

Tuesday 23rd January 2024

Royal Wootton Bassett Town continue their testing series of January fixtures with a home Hellenic League Premier Division encounter against Westfields on Saturday (Sustain Stadium, 3pm).

Alan Griffin's last minute winner earned Bassett all three points when the teams met in Hereford in November. And Sam Collier's side thus go in search of a first ever season double against Westfields when they square off in Wiltshire.

Westfields - whose squad has been strengthened by a number of signings in recent weeks - have never lost at the Sustain Stadium though, winning 6-1 and 3-1 on their first two visits before a 1-1 draw last season.

While having a better year than their opponents, Bassett will therefore need to be on guard to claim what will be another valuable win.

Admission is £7 for adults, £4 for concessions and free for RWBTFC youth members.

Also on Saturday the Development team visit Trowbridge Town in the Wiltshire League Premier Division (2.15pm kick off).

Like the Men's First Team, Mark Simpkins' side can complete a season double over their opponents having triumphed 3-2 at home against the Bees in October.
