Vanarama National League South fan preview: Weymouth regular Richard Wood outlines what he thinks lies ahead.
League sponsors Vanarama have been getting the fans’ perspective ahead of the new season – which kicks off this Saturday
The new season is so nearly upon us – what have Terras fans got to look forward to?
The return to the National League set up, facing clubs we played regularly in the past.
The club were Southern League champions of course, but just how big is it for Weymouth to be back in the National League after so long away?
Massive. But the standard has gone up a lot since we last competed, so we are under no illusions.
What’s been the best bit of business done over the past few months?
Keeping hold of most of last season’s squad and adding a little bit of experience with a few new signings.
Who will be your one to watch coming August 3?
Josh McQuoid is a class act. Hopefully he can stay clear of injury this season.
Who are the other sides to watch out for and could be in the end of season shake-up?
Havant & Waterloville will be expected to be up there and Billericay, as long as things are settled off the pitch.
What ground are you looking forward to visiting more than anywhere?
Twerton Park, the home of Bath City. A proper old ground.
And what game would you like to win the most?
Don’t mind really, we don’t have a real derby as such now Dorchester are in a different league.
What opposition player would you most like to see in your side?
Being newly promoted I have not seen many of the players at this level. I will have to reserve judgement on that!
Finally, the all important question – where do you predict your team will finish?
I think most fans would take a top half finish, but if we adapt well I think we could do a bit better than that.
