Football - A Look Ahead At The Weekends Local Matches

Weymouth are in FA Cup action today against league rivals Bideford.

The Terras will have new defender Calvin Brooks available for the game who's arrived on a month long loan deal from Yeovil.

Manager Jason Matthews told Wessex FM, it'll be a welcome return to the Bob Lucas;

"All you can ask for is a home draw and that's what we got.  Especially in these early rounds because you can go to some tricky places with some not so nice surfaces and its lovely to be back at the Bob Lucas as we haven't played there for a few weeks anyway."

Dorchester are on the road today as they take on Abingdon United in the FA Cup.

The Magpies are looking to keep their recent form that's helped them secure back-to-back wins.

New manager Graham Kemp says it's a welcome distraction for the side;

"I love it. I think it's a brilliant distraction.  You tend to play the same teams year in year out and its nice to get on the coach and have a bit of a laugh with the lads."

Bridport are at home to Longwell Green in the Western League Premier Division.

The side is stretched with unavailable players and injuries.  One of the Bees squad is getting married today, and five of his team mates have been invited to the wedding.

BUT boss Trevor Senior says there'll hopefully be a new addition to the squad.

"We've signed Adam Anstey on dual registration from Weymouth Reserves. So hopefully his paper work will go through so he can come in to the side."

Portland United are at home to Sherborne Town Reserves.
