I KNOW the weather was poor for Weston's recent match versus Hayes, and England v Spain was on the TV that night, but an attendance including some away fans of 103! Does Weston want a football team at all?Despite the efforts of the club's management on the pitch and through the community and schools, and of the players, directors and committee through the most successful period in the club's history, the people of the town cannot, it seems, be bothered to give the support the club deserves.With the continuing population growth of the town, bringing with it younger age groups than the traditional OAPs, it seems woeful to me that Weston's average attendance is less than those of Yate Town and Mangotsfield United, and not much better than Clevedon Town, places of smaller catchment areas and who also have to compete with the City and Rovers of Bristol.It's no wonder the team has been doing better on their travels of late. It seems like a morgue at times at the Woodspring! For the club to continue to play at its current level, or even one level lower, more support is needed or else it will soon face life back in the Screwfix Western League or worse.KEITH METCALFE - High Wycombe Seagull
