Bridgwater Town FC eye new striker to test Taunton Town FC
Tuesday, November 01, 2011
Bridgwater Town are looking to sign a new striker from a higher division in time for tonight’s Red Insure Cup tie against Taunton Town at Fairfax Park (7.45pm).
Bridgwater lost 6-2 at Taunton in a league match in August, and boss Rob Dray said: “We shall be fielding a strong side. We certainly did not play very well when we met Taunton in the summer.”
By local derby standards, it was a tame affair with Taunton scoring four times in the last 20 minutes.
Bridgwater will have ex-Weston-super-Mare skipper Andy Robertson back in their squad.
Taunton include three players under the age of 18 – Tom Hopkins, Tom Ellis and Luke Redrup – but skipper Andy Butler misses the game following his wedding on Saturday.
Bridgwater Town (from): Hutchings, Barnes, Townley, Pitcher, Turner, Orchard, Mawford, Lyons, Merceica, Best, Knox, Wring, Peek, Hamilton, Peppin, Robertson, A N Other.
Taunton Town (from): Astley, Painter, P Veal, Cole, Rice, Short, Vance, Ingram, MacNab, Blake, Pounde, C Veal, Stone, Legg, Marsh, Hopkins, Ellis, Redrup.
