SO MUCH has happened in the past year as the Covid-19 pandemic has gripped the globe.

As the virus began to invade the UK, the Government was considering putting a major freeze on 'normal' life in March 2020.

That same weekend, Weymouth hosted Slough Town at the Bob Lucas Stadium as two play-off contenders came face-to-face.

With games called off around the country, fans flocked to Dorset for one of the few matches untouched by the cancellations.

Supporters whose games had been called off in the likes of London, Birmingham and Bristol hot-footed it down to watch the Terras.

And what a treat it was for the 1,578 that attended.

Calvin Brooks saw two chances go begging for Weymouth, before skipper Josh McQuoid put the hosts ahead with a 51st-minute penalty.

Slough earned a spot-kick of their own six minutes later, only for keeper Jack Turner to lash his effort against the bar.

It was then left to Andy Robinson to seal a highly entertaining 2-0 win with two minutes remaining as Weymouth cemented third in the Vanarama National League South.

This game represents the last time fans were unrestricted in attending a Weymouth home game.

But after lockdown and four months without football, Weymouth returned to win two play-off games and earn promotion to the National League.

So much has happened, even in the footballing world.
