WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING?
Weymouth FC, The Terras, Founded 1890
HOW DID THEY DO LAST SEASON?
The Terras finished 18th last season, with 39 points, 13 points and 3 places behind the Shots.
HOW DID SHOTS GET ON AGAINST THEM LAST SEASON?
Rather oddly, both sides won their away games, without conceding a goal. In January this year, two Andrew Dallas goals gave Weymouth a 2-0 win at the EBB Stadium. In April, Aldershot left the Bob Lucas Stadium with a comfortable 3-0 victory, thanks to two Josh Rees strikes and one from Harry Panayiotou.
WHO’S THEIR GAFFER?:
53 year-old David Oldfield is an English former professional footballer who played for several English clubs including Luton Town, Manchester City, Leicester City and Stoke City. Oldfield recently joined the Terras after a successful two-year spell with Vanarama National League South side Oxford City which currently sees the Hoops fighting for promotion in 3rd place. Having joined Weymouth earlier this month, Oldfield’s first game in charge saw his side earn a 1-1 away draw with promotion-chasing Boreham Wood.
11 players were released at the end of last season. They included former Shot Alefe Santos and former Shots loanee Myles Anderson. Jake McCarthy signed for Havant & Waterlooville and another former Shot, Josh Wakefield for Salisbury.
10 players remain contracted at the club including captain Josh McQuoid, left back Ollie Harfield, midfielder Andy Robinson and forward Sean Shields.
11 new signings joined at the start of this season, including; Keeper Ross Fitzsimmons (Stockport), Defender Tyler Cordner (AFC Bournemouth), Midfielder Xander McBurnie (Barnet) and Forward Bradley Ash (Chippenham), who is the joint top scorer for Terras in the league, having scored three goals, the same as Josh McQuoid.
Josh McQuoid played for Aldershot Town during Gary Waddock’s most recent spell as manager.
