Swindon Supermarine v Poole Preview

Posted by Keith Yeomans

Supermarine vs Poole Preview:

We host a massive season opener at the Webbswood Stadium this Saturday 5th August, with a visit from the Dolphins, kick off 3pm. Having concluded last season in our highest ever league placing, we begin 2023/24 with great anticipation and the usual sprinkle of hope that will find its way on to every terrace around the league at this time of the year – welcome to the new season!

Lee Spalding and Charlie Griffin have been working non-stop during the off season to ensure they have a side that will give it’s all and the performance against Taunton Town certainly indicated that they will be able to compete at the levels we came to expect last time round, and the opportunity for new heroes to emerge is certainly there.

With a strong core of last seasons talented squad retained, we can expect another exciting season where we take a one-game-at-a-time approach, brimming with quiet optimism and keep our feet on the ground, let’s see where it takes us!

Having reached the playoffs last term, our visitor will be hoping they can go one better this season and will certainly be high on many Southern League fans list for promotion this campaign, and with the club managing to retain the services of leading scorer Tony Lee and adding to their goal scoring threat with Portsmouth youngster Destiny Ojo and former Chippenham winger Alefe Santos in their ranks, they have every chance of going one better.

Poole programme cover

Match Programme:

We open our Southern League Premier South campaign starting with the match against Poole Town on Saturday August 5th 2023. Our printed matchday programme will cost £2:50p whilst stocks last.

Parking & Travel:

Whilst we have FREE car parking for over 300 cars in our car park at the Webbswood Stadium, it does get very busy on matchdays so why not travel by public transport and then save the issue off finding a parking space!

We encourage our spectators to use the Stagecoach Number 7 bus from the town centre bus station, with a route via Greenbridge Retail Park and The Crown Inn at Stratton. It’s a twenty-three-minute bus ride to the last bus stop in the South Marston Industrial Estate (Exel stop).

Just ask the bus driver to stop for you at the bus stop for the Supermarine Sports Complex, and then it’s just a few minutes’ walk from there to the ground. This makes the Webbswood Stadium more accessible to all and has greener credentials, please try it!
