This is turning into a very good pre-season, wins against Bristol City and Plymouth Argyle, plus wins against Tiverton and Bovey Tracey plus Weymouth town.
Weston-Super-Mare will provide tough opposition, they may have had a reprive from the Blue Square South last season but none the less they will be wanting to prove next season that they are good enough for the BSS.
Billy Kee is showing that he can score goals all the time and Benyon is getting into shape and improving his fitness. With Martin Gritton as well wes have that experince that we really needed upfront and gives us that extra umph up front.
Having Guy Branston back is a big bonus. Those crunching tackles, his leadership qualities and his ability to improve other defenders around him (Mark Ellis) is excellent.
Weston-SM in the past 4 season have finished in the relegation zone in the BSS only to be given a reprive every time. Daren Mullings is a WSM player and is the team Ben Joyce was loaned out to last season.
My prediction is a 5-0 win, Billy Kee with 2 and the other 3 going to Benyon, Stevens and Gritts.
Not much in the way of any reports for this game and I had wanted to do a grounds review photo shoot at their ground today, sadly I had far to much to do work wise and will do it in the very near future, so had to make do with just the one picture.
Also Steve Orchard playing at right back for WSM last night made a handfull of appearances for Torquay under Wes all from the bench I think.
Steve Orchard is one of the players who will appear on Barty's A-Z of TUFC players who never played for TUFC when he gets round to it.
He never actually got onto the pitch in a "first-class" game.
He turned pro in 2003 after a two year apprenticeship, featured in a few pre-season friendlies and was an unused substitute in one League game and one LDV Trophy game. He had a poor game in a 2-3 Devon St Luke's Bowl defeat at Torrington and was released soon after.
I don’t really trust them not to build more houses and then not deliver the stadium and just sod off
