The Opposition:

Molesley’s side head into the festive period sitting in 4th after having a very positive start to their season. However, they come into this fixture having lost their first game since August in a 1-0 defeat against a determined Dorking Wanderers side.

Despite being in the division below, the Terras will sure to be resilient and determined to cause an upset in the Buildbase FA Trophy.

The Gaffer: Mark Molesley

Mark Molesley certainly has an established career within football having played for numerous sides as a midfielder before starting his journey as a manager. Some of those sides he has played for include Hayes, Aldershot Town and Bournemouth.

Molesley first came to Weymouth in 2015 and later occupied the player-manager role alongside managing Bournemouth U21. He was later announced as the caretaker manager in 2017 before taking on the job full-time where he has managed since.

One to Watch: Ben Thomson

Ben Thomson signed for Weymouth at the start of the 2015/16 season and went onto score 14 goals in all competitions, meaning that he was the club's top goalscorer that season and has since established himself as one of the most important players for the Terras.

So far this season, Thomson has contributed seven goals in all competitions and will likely be a threat for Darren Currie’s side this afternoon.
