Sports aiming to seal first win of season
DORSET SENIOR LEAGUE
WEYMOUTH Sports will be out to cast a spell on the Witches tomorrow as they continue their search for a first victory in the Dorset Senior League.
The Seasiders have picked up three draws in their opening four games and this weekend they will be hoping to go one better against Witchampton United at Cranford Avenue (3pm).
Joint-boss Chris Hicks said: “It is going to be another tough game there is no doubt about that.
“Witchampton are always a strong and physical side that are hard to break down but if we can continue performing like we did against Portland United Reserves last week, I have no doubt our first win will not be far away.”
Sports are hoping to have several players back this weekend including experienced defender Marc Windust.
Hicks added: “We were missing three centre-halves last weekend but hopefully a couple of them will be back and we are hoping to have Robbie Rolls again too. He took his goal well against Portland and is an important player for us when he is available.”
Reigning champions Portland, who were held to a 1-1 draw at Sports, host Stourpaine in their first outing of the season at Grove Corner (3pm).
The fourth-placed Blues have played four away games so far in the league, picking up seven points in the process.
United manager Lee Clarke said: “It will be nice to be at home and the aim is just to keep the development of the youngsters going.
“There were some good performances last weekend and having watched the under-18s last Sun-day, there are some good prospects there too.”
