Clevedon Town has organized a friendly against the Under-23s of Chippenham Town next Monday (January 3).
The match will be played on the grounds of the Everyone Active Stadium 3G and will start at 19:30.
Both halves will last 45 minutes and all supporters are welcome, with admission by voluntary donation.
With the Seasiders not in action until Saturday, January 8, when they host Mousehole, manager Alex White felt it was a good opportunity to ensure his team get back into shape over the Christmas season.
âWe haven’t played a lot of games in the last month or so and since we don’t have a game on New Years Day, it’s just a good game to keep the legs cool and also give the baby a few minutes. a few who need it right now, âhe said.
“Chippenham will bring a young squad so I’m sure it will be an energetic encounter for us.”
White has confirmed Morgan Davies is likely to return for the friendly after a knee blow.
However, the game could come soon for two players like Alex Twiggs, who is back in training after a two-month absence with an ankle injury, and Cam Salmon, who is recovering from a back injury. .
“We’re going to do a few rotations, there are also a few coming back from injury, so we should be able to get them some good minutes,” White added.
The Seasiders ended the year with their first victory in five Toolstation Western League games with a 4-1 win over Street on Saturday.
Archie Ferris scored his second hat-trick of the season following a hat-trick against Bridport in October.
Glen Hayer scored the other goal and White says his team will enter 2022 with confidence and believes they can change shape and be a force for the New Year.
â2021 has been a difficult year for us, to be honest,â he said.
âWe haven’t hit the levels we should be in the league, but we’re heading into 2022 in great shape and spirit and there is the foundation for a potentially really successful season.
“If we can keep and keep our key players in good shape as well as recruit well, I truly believe we can be a really competitive team in our tough league.”
