Weston-super-Mare have been drawn away to fellow National League South side Bognor Regis Town, in the second round qualifying of the FA Cup, it has been announced today (Monday).
The Seagulls have already played the Rocks once this season, and ground out an impressive 1-1 draw, despite playing much of the match with 10 men.
However, since that result Weston have struggled, picking up just one point from three games.
They now sit second bottom of the National League South, while Bognor Regis sit comfortably in mid-table.
Saturday’s 4-1 defeat to Havant and Waterlooville left manager Marc McGregor disappointed with the performance and he said it was ‘unacceptable’.
But the Seagulls have a chance to make amends tomorrow (Tuesday) when they host Wealdstone at The Woodspring Stadium.
The FA Cup match will take place on September 16 at 3pm, with the Seagulls hoping for more success than last season.
Weston lost 2-1 at Division One South and West side North Leigh in the second round qualifying, and it turned out to be then head coach Ryan Northmore’s last game in charge, as he was sacked soon after.
