Signings could be on the cards at Bridgwater Town

This is The West Country: Signings could be on the card at Bridgwater Town Signings could be on the card at Bridgwater Town

BRIDGWATER Town will be looking to add to their squad in the January transfer window – that is the message from joint boss Kevin Milsom.

Milsom was left smarting after the side’s 3-1 defeat to Paulton Rovers on Saturday but said the management team of himself, Dave Pople and Paul West will be looking to bounce back and bolster the squad for what promises to be a busy month.

He said: “I was a little bit disappointed because they [Paulton Rovers] have done to us what we have been doing to other teams – they worked hard and got the breaks when they needed them.

“If Tim Legg’s shot had gone in it could have been totally different and I think a point would have been a fair result.

“It was disappointing not to get the win in front of a bigger crowd, too.”

Former Radstock front man Omari Sims made his debut on Saturday and he is just one of what could be a number of new faces to come to Fairfax Park this month.

Milsom said: “Games will be coming thick and fast over the next 28 days so we will be making an approach for a few players to bolster the squad.

“We will be looking to make them a permanent addition to the squad but if the right loan signing came around then we would also look at that too.”

The Robins have an opportunity to bounce back tonight (Tuesday) when fourth placed Methyr Town are the visitors.

Captain Chris McGrath is a doubt for the clash as he is suffering with a hamstring problem.

Milsom said: “It is a big game and we want to get back playing again to get over the defeat. They are a big club and we are aware it will be a tough match.”

Kick-off is 7.45pm.

Here we go again - sign on more players, after the squad has started to gel. How we going to pay for these extra players? Apparently there is no money left in the club? What happened to the new sponsors money - that was for players wages?

I hear they have folded the u18s who are top of the league and still in the cup have 3/4 county players, play very good football and now have nowhere to go!!
Short shortsightedness at its very best.

They can come and a play for Taunton, our U18 are nowhere near the standard of last years, looking at the league table at least.

CLUB STATEMENT - UNDER-18 TEAM

After lengthy discussion at the Club's Executive Committee Meeting on Wednesday 9th January, unfortunately, the decision has been taken to withdraw our Under-18 team from the Somerset Floodlight Youth League with immediate effect.

This decision has not been taken lightly, and is in response to factors regarding the condition of the playing surface at Fairfax Park and the number of games being played on it at present and for the remainder of the season.

The recent spell of wet weather has, of course, been a major factor in the postponement of several of our First and Reserve team home games which have all been rearranged for midweek - with several replacing scheduled Under-18 team games, And with further bad weather expected over the next few weeks, more games could be at risk.

These rearrangements, coupled with other midweek games we are contracted to host, has meant that finding suitable dates to rearrange Under-18 team fixtures has become increasingly difficult, so the decision to withdraw the team has sadly been forced upon us.

We hope that everyone concerned understands the situation the Club finds itself in. The fact that the Somerset Floodlight Youth League is a midweek competition where playing at weekends is not an option is the problem. We only have one pitch to fit all our teams' matches on and at present, even without the Under-18 team fixtures, we are still committed to staging 3 to 4 games a week until the end of the season.

The Club would like to place on record our thanks to Sam Reilly for his efforts in running the Under-18 Team after taking over at short notice prior to the start of the current season - it is always a thankless task with the constant changing of games due to our other teams' fixtures taking priority.
