WESTON have guaranteed a record crowd for this Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Doncaster Rovers, having already sold more than 2,300 tickets ahead of the big match.

Mickey Bell’s side will be hopeful of upsetting the odds against their League One visitors and will be cheered on by their largest crowd since moving to the Woodspring Stadium, their ground since 2004.

The previous record attendance was set this summer against Bristol City, with the pre-season friendly against their neighbours attracting a crowd of 1,465.

In the old surroundings of the now defunct Woodspring Park, Weston did bring in a crowd of 2,623 some 20 years ago against Woking, but that figure also looks under threat with two days’ worth of sales still to come.

Doncaster Rovers have already sold out their original allocation of 600 tickets for the match, and have requested an increased number for those travelling down from Yorkshire.

The FA Cup itself will be making an appearance at the ground on Saturday, from 11am-3pm, with the stadium bars open from that time ahead of Football Focus’ broadcast from the stadium at 12.20pm.

Tickets are still available for Saturday’s match, and available from Bristol Ticket Shop or from the club tomorrow and Friday, from 8.30am-6.30pm.
