Weekend preview: Bassett host Brimscombe

Tuesday 12th March 2024

Royal Wootton Bassett Town play their penultimate home fixture of the Hellenic League Premier Division regular season on Saturday as Brimscombe and Thrupp visit the Sustain Stadium (3pm kick off).

After a convincing 3-1 away win against the Lilywhites when the teams met earlier in the campaign, Sam Collier and his side will be aiming to complete a season double over their visitors for only the third ever time (the two previous occasions Bassett have achieved such a feat being in 2014-15 and 2015-16).

That would mark a welcome change from recent years with Brimscombe having earned maximum points against Bassett in each of the last two seasons as well as in 2017-18.

With Brimscombe in the bottom half of the table, Bassett go into the match as favourites. But they'll again have to be at their best to triumph, with Brimscombe hoping for a repeat of last season's visit to the Sustain Stadium when they cantered to a 3-0 win.

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

While not in competitive action, the Women's First Team entertain South West Regional Women's Football League Premier Division side Frampton Rangers in a friendly on Sunday (Gerard Buxton Sports Ground AGP, 2.30pm).

Admission on Sunday is £4 for adults, £2 for concessions and free for RWBTFC youth members.
