A busy weekend

The Port have a busy weekend ahead with matches away to Romsey on Saturday and home to landlords East Cowes Vics on Monday afternoon.

Andy Sampson’sside will welcome back Joe Craig and Scott Sampson although both Jordan Brown and Mark Taylor are suspended for the Romsey match.

Romsey were one of the sides expected to make the running this season after such a good performance last year finishing fourth in the league. They haven’t got the start they wanted and will be looking for improvement as they strive to move up the table.

The match against East Cowes Vics on Monday will be interesting as the Vics are officially the away side. They have had a good seven days getting a point against fancied Bemerton last Saturday and knocking Premier Division side Hamble Club out of the Hampshire Senior Cup on Tuesday, going through on penalties.

Monday’s game is likely to be well attended so if you are coming by car please arrive early so as to get a space.

On Saturday Newport reserves are away to Newchurch in the Island League Division 2 with a 2.00pm kick off.
