WEYMOUTH have a busy weekend ahead of them with three home ties at Redlands Community Sports Hub.

Today, Weymouth face Urbond VC in the National Shield.

Urbond, based in Portsmouth, play in the division above Weymouth currently and it will be an interesting match up to see who comes out on top, with the hosts hoping to be playing in that league next year.

A win in this game would appear to generate a tie against Division One opposition in the next round which would be a great test for the seaside town’s newly-formed team.

Tomorrow, Weymouth then take their concentration back to the South West League which they currently top.

They face Torexe Topguns and City of Bristol VC in a double header with games starting at 11am.

City of Bristol VC are one of only three teams yet to lose a match in the league this season (alongside Yeovil and Weymouth).

They have however, have only played two games compared to Weymouth’s four.

That said, the seasiders are hopeful of taking maximum points to maintain their lead at the top of the division.

It will be the second time Weymouth have faced Torexe having met them at Bristol earlier in the season.

The last result was 3-0 to Weymouth and they will be looking to achieve this score again being the only team not to drop a set this season.

However, having refereed the last fixture between Bristol VC and Torexe after playing both teams, Weymouth will be aware that Torexe have more in their bag than they bought when they played them and the seasiders will have to play well to achieve this scoreline.

Player-coach Sean Hendry ahead of the triumvirate of games said: “This is a really big weekend for us.

“The National Shield is a competition we hope to do well in.

“It was disappointing to go out of the National Cup however, in reality we faced a top division one side in Southampton who had the experience to take the game.

“The shield represents a chance for us to put Weymouth on the map and while there are many division one sides in the draw we hope we can get through to show what we are about.

“Urbond have not been setting division three alight and it will be a good for us to see where we stand in the scheme of things. Coming back to the league we have got four 3-0 wins so far and will look to carry this forward.

“With three games we will have to rotate the squad but I have faith in the players coming through to keep the performance levels high.

Weymouth play Urbond today, first service at 2pm and then City of Bristol tomorrow with first service at 11.30am.

They will then play Torexe Topguns with the game expected to start around 3pm.

It is free to spectate and Weymouth hope to build on the atmosphere created last time out.

Weymouth would like to thank sponsors Aura Nightclub and Stressless Massage.
