Wellington’s opponents ‘are the best in the league’

WELLINGTON football boss Tim Legg ranks tomorrow’s opponents at Playing Field Mousehole as the “best team in football” in the Toolsstation League Premier Division (3:00 p.m.), writes Barry Knott.

“It will be a fantastic test for us,” said Legg, whose side beat Millbrook 2-0 at home last weekend. He described it as “one of our most complete performances of the season”. “We showed the consistent mentality we were looking for in our performances and it was nice to see that come to fruition,” he said.

Wellington have taken a maximum of six points from their last two home matches, the other being a 3-1 win over Cadbury Heath a fortnight ago. However, they remain 14th in the standings and it is hard to see them finishing higher this season. Mousehole, on the other hand, is second, four points behind the leaders, with both teams having played the same number of games.

Wellington ends its season with away games against Ilfracombe Town (Easter Friday) and Helston (Easter Monday).

Wellington Reserves, who are due to face Chard at home in the Devon and Exeter League Premier League next Wednesday night, have no game this weekend.

Wellington A will be looking to complete the season’s double against Wyvern when they play Taunton in the Saturday League Premier League tomorrow.

Wellington Reds take on Exmoor Rangers in the Saturday League Gardner Cup at the Castle Sports Center tonight (Friday) (8pm).
