Swindon Supermarine are back in action at The Webbswood Stadium this Saturday when opponents Beaconsfield Town will be looking to complete the double over Marine, having won 1-0 at Holloways Park back in November. Our respective league position have changed from that evening, with Beaconsfield moving into 4th place after that win, but they now sit precariously in 17th place, just two points above the last relegation place. Whilst Marine were back in 19th place then and now are in 11th position, although there are only four points currently separating the two clubs going into this game.
The Marine squad is boosted by the signing of Harry Williams from Gloucester City in midweek and he should be on the team sheet when its submitted at 2:15pm on Saturday. Goalkeeper Josh Hill will also be making a welcomed return from injury after suffering a broken collarbone at Chippenham Town back in September. Joe Shepherd and Connor Thompson are also back in contention after a couple weeks out through injury. Goalkeeper Martin Horsell misses out after his red card last week and is suspended for four games.
Beaconsfield will be buoyed by the recent signings of goalkeeper Charlie Burns from Hayes & Yeading and striker’s Thomas Gogo and Billy Montague from basement side Staines Town. Manager Gary Meakin will be unlikely to make too many changes to the squad from the last two games, which saw a narrow 2-1 defeat at Poole Town and a 1-1 draw at home to Walton Casuals.

“We need to remember the competitiveness of this league.” said Marine Manager Lee Spalding on Thursday evening. “No team has the divine right to win a game of football and no team in this league is going to let any other side just turn up roll over and have their belly tickled.”
“Before the awful performance and 2-0 defeat at Basingstoke last week, our form in the previous three games had been excellent. The 2-0 win against Dorchester Town, the excellent draw at then league leaders Taunton Town 1-1 and the 1-1 draw at home to an inform Chesham United where we only had ten men for an hour of that game and we had a crucial second-half penalty saved.”
“We need to return to the performances from these three games and if we do, I know we can secure another three crucial points against Beaconsfield. This will go a long way to ensuring we stay in this competitive league for next season. A league where currently there are just 15 points separating the club in the last playoff place and the last relegation place. Two or three losses in a row could see us in a relegation dog fight, whilst equally three wins could see us on the verge of a playoff place, we still have a lot to play for in our last eight league games this season.”
