WESTON hope to break a stadium record when hosting Farnborough on Saturday as they hold a community charity day.

Match day prices have been scrapped, with supporters being asked to give a donation to the Seagulls’ Community Trust instead.

Director Oli Bliss said the club hopes to record a higher attendance than the 1,300 fans who watched them play AFC Wimbledon four seasons ago.

The community trust holds youth club sessions two nights a week and runs programmes alongside other voluntary organisations to help youngsters in and around Weston.

On Saturday a charity football match between veterans and the youth team will kick-off on the practice pitch at 12.30pm and there will be other activities taking place at half time.
