WEYMOUTH & Portland head coach Simon Litster is delighted to see his side’s renewed confidence showing through as they continue their good start to the season.

Litster was speaking after his Weymouth’s 40-12 demolition of Blandford in Dorset & Wilts One South that gives the Seahorses 12 points after four games, with two wins, one draw and one loss that sees them in sixth place, just three points off second spot.

Litster said: “I think the confidence is building and that is showing in their play.

“I think they realise that on occasions we have been our own worst enemy and allowing the mistakes to happen and on Saturday, certainly in the second half, there was a determination not to let those mistakes happen.

“Everybody basically was working for each other which of course is very key in a team sport.

“Confidence is a lot to do with it in any of these situations. If you go into a game thinking that you have got a really good chance of winning then that obviously stands you in good stead.”

It is in stark contrast to the previous season, that saw Weymouth struggling against the prospect of relegation before a late surge saw them escape.

The Seahorses have a week off this week due to opting not to enter into the cup games, which gives the squad a chance to recover from niggling injuries.
