Magpies And Terras Begin League Campaigns
12:02am 17th August 2013
Dorchester and Weymouth kick off their league campaigns today.
The Magpies visit Staines Town in the Conference South.
Manager Phil Simkin hopes Mark Jermyn will have recovered from a knock to take his place in the starting line up, but Aaron Pugh misses out...having recovered from injury but needs match practice to regain first team fitness levels.
Terras go to St Neots Town in the Calor Premier with injury problems. Simon Evans, Michael Walker, Carl Critchell and Jamie Symes are all missing.Manager Brendon King says it will give other squad players an early opportunity to press for a regular first team position.
Bridport are in FA cup action...in the extra preliminary round at Hengrove Athletic, knowing that a win will not only net them £ 1,500 but also a lucrative tie against welsh side Merthyr Tydfil. Hengrove have just been promoted into Bridport's league and Bees boss Trevor Senior describes them as something of an 'unknown' qualtity.
Senior's sticking with the same squad which faced Sherborne Town in the league midweek, but is considering making changes to the starting eleven.
