Weston-super-Mare head coach Scott Bartlett is hoping a bumper crowd at The Woodspring Stadium tomorrow (Friday) will help the side ensure their National League South safety and encourage them to come back to watch the club next season.

The Seagulls are hosting an open day ahead of their crucial clash with Margate and are offering fans the chance to watch the match for just £1.
There will also be a bouncy castle, happy hour at the bar and skills and games taking place in the sports hall.

Weston’s head coach Scott Bartlett told the Mercury it makes a difference to the players when there is a good crowd and atmosphere and so he is hoping for more of the same tomorrow.

He said: “It is a really big game. It is one of those where this is a bit of pressure on us as it comes with expectation.

“But I can see us going on an unbeaten run now until the end of the season and it would be great if we could give the crowd something to cheer about.

“It is not just about tomorrow, we hope that we can get the families to come back next season.

“It is massive to have a good atmosphere and we have got to play our part in performing on the pitch, as the fans have been fantastic this season. “It would just be great to get a few more of them in.”

Margate sit second bottom of the table and if Weston secure victory and Gosport lose to Bishop’s Stortford, the Seagulls will confirm they will play National League South football next season.
